That is awesome. I've never seen an old shifter like that. You just reach back and move the lever. I love it..

When technology becomes emotion. Campagnolo inspires love. Shimano stuff, while perfectly good, doesn't inspire.

Note where the chain guide is and imagine the chain moving through it. You pedal backward on the Paris-Roubaix to shift. It's pretty fucked up awesome.

This is bullshit.

Cancellara attacks and only Stybar can answer:


Then Stybar gets clippped:


That's awesome bike-handling to stay up like that after getting knocked way over to the other side of the very slippery pave. Stybar is the former World Cyclocross Champion:


I'm digging the machine on the left.

Paris-Roubaix got me all pumped up, so I finally got my dirt bike back up and running:


I'll try not to break it on its shakedown ride.

It was pretty emotional when that Europcar rider feigned sleep because he started crying.

I have to say, it's total bullshit that the broom wagon no longer has a broom on it. The older broom wagons had brooms on them:


I thought that was cool. This wasn't just Paris-Roubaix but also the Tour and this practice is very old:


I have no idea why the current broom wagons don't have brooms on them.

Trying to take a picture of this watch is a pain in the ass. The domed crystal makes it nearly impossible to get a decent shot. I even tried a polarizing filter and it barely helped.

I had it out a few times last year when the weather was nice. I need to get some cold weather riding clothes.

Sanremo is the longest.

Flanders is the hardest to win.

Roubaix is the most mythic.

This weekend will be La Doyenne (The Oldest). It's time for Liege-Bastogne-Liege:

Quote:
The 1980 edition of the race was affected by snow that started moments after the start. The British magazine, Procycling, reported: “Riders struggled on, with hands to faces to keep a view of the road. The race was an anonymous mass of plastic jackets and windcheaters. Spectators stood in goggles like upmarket snowmen, red-faced in the bitterness. Within the hour some teams had barely a man left on the road.”



Quote:
Bernard Hinault, the winner, was one of few to finish the course in 1980. It took three weeks for proper movement to return to two fingers of his right hand.

I guess I've lost a bit of the 'cross mojo.



I'll have to spend more time in the saddle to get it back.
