Tweets of the Week 2019: Roubaix on the rocks!

While other races can often fall flat, lose their effervescence, become humdrum on the day, Paris-Roubaix never does. And that racing energy gets translated into a vibrant Twitterstream … it’s time for ROUBAIX TWEETS OF THE WEEK!

700 and counting

The moment the race was won …

It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been racing, how many victories you already have in your palmares … Roubaix means something special.
