2008 Paris-Roubaix

106th Paris-Roubaix - 1.HC
France, April 13, 2008


Huge(!!!) cheers and congratulations to Maaskant today! I was up and signed in early today to watch the race and once again was far from disappointed. What a great race. I was sad to hear Maggy had mechanical issues and I'm looking forward to (hoping) for entries from Will and Mike on their experiences in days to come. I have to say even Boonen gets a congratulations from me as he rode a great race. To see Tony in 2nd and Stuey right up there made for great watching.

Julie always writes the best recaps of the races so I'm directing you to her for a great write up! Coverage was focused mostly on the front two groups but we did get a small Will sighting but I haven't found any pics. Most others are filled in below.
