It was a Weekend in Hell – for the first time, we had women’s Roubaix on Saturday and men’s Roubaix on Sunday. It was all about the mud, the blood, the snot, the tears, the ache, the cobbles. And we loved it! (Thank you, @abagofspanners, for the phrase Caked Crusaders). Hopefully, we’ll give you a real sense of the weekend and showing you little treasures you may have missed! We also say goodbye to Andre Greipel and Nicolas Roche. Oh – and at the end? We have Italian riders dancing in cleats!!!!!
Take your seat at the VeloVoices table and revel in the joy of Paris-Roubaix and the World Championships.
Kathi, Midge, Luke and Euan chew over two huge weekends of racing including:
- The chaos of a wet and filthy Monument
- Cycling fans united with one common enemy
- A well deserved world champion
- And Luke moans about how long the season has been
Plus Hipster Corner with tales of Mark Cavendish and Andre Greipel and a look ahead to a beautiful week of autumn racing.
If you spot the non-deliberate mistake on the winner of last year’s Il Lombardia please tweet @lukethecycliste who will be handling all complaints on this issue.
It was the best Worlds EVER and Sunday’s men’s road race was absolutely mad and majestic and … well, 6 stars! So many stories, so many great fan tweets, so many songs … Dig in, folks!
