Paris Roubaix 2015 is upon us this weekend!
The legendary Paris Roubaix is the epitome of one day racing, and it rolls around as part of the Spring Classics all of a sudden, then leaves us for another year.
I’m a huge fan of the Tour de France but in terms of excitement and sheer unexpected action you simply can’t beat Paris Roubaix as a road racing fan. It’s the one that all pro riders want on their palmares.
Brutal cobbles that are often slippery and muddy, steep climbs, long distance, narrow roads, unpredictable weather conditions and a velodrome finish – what’s not to love?!
The joy of Paris Roubaix is that it quickly descends into every man for himself – teams can rarely dominate here and small breakaways quickly form and usually the fans get what they want – a gutsy, tank emptying finish from a hell bent rider who crosses the line wearing mud, a grimace and a tear in his eye.
I can’t wait for Sunday’s race!
Join The Paris Roubaix Party With £10 Off The Jersey…
The Paris Roubaix Jersey by Retro Image Apparel is based on officially licensed artwork. Not an imitation. Constructed from premium odour repellent fabrics using YKK zips and a True Fit size that is designed to fit your actual size (if you wear a medium t-shirt, you’ll be a medium).
This is obviously a popular time for this jersey, but rather than swash buckle a load of profit – we thought we would take £10 off until the end of Paris Roubaix race day (Sunday 12th April 2015) so that everyone can enjoy this fine piece of heritage. No codes required – we’ve simply dropped it by £10…BUY THE PARIS ROUBAIX JERSEY >>
