You want to do a ride down here in the Southbay? That's fine with me. If we ride down here, I'm happy to put together a parcours.

Let's leave the shop at 8:00 a.m.?

Another great ride...

Finally getting a feel for the bike and starting to build the confidence to start pushing a bit. It's good.

It's a weird perspective... can't tell you're up on a cliff.

It was an awesome ride.

Foundry Overland.

My first titanium bike. My first carbon fork. My first cyclocross bike without bar end shifters.

So much for Old School.

1973 PARIS-ROUBAIX The Riders of Hell

EDDY MERCKX and ROGER DE VLAEMINCK in the Hell Classic Paris-Roubaix

Brief summary: the first major selection occurred at the Wallers-Arenberg sector of cobbles where a 16-rider lead group emerged. Then, from out of the Bouvignies pavé it was down to Roger de Vlaeminck and Eddy Merckx. De Vlaeminck had severely injured his arm in Gent-Wevelghem and couldn't hold Merckx's wheel. That was the race. Merckx rode solo for 44 kilometers to handily win his third Paris-Roubaix.

- Excerpt from PR73 on BIKERACEINFO by Bill McGann

(picture "MEN AGAINST MERCKX", by Johny Vansevenant, 2012)
