It's that time of year! For us down under, late nights gatherings with our tribes as we are riveted by the giants of the road battle it out in the classics. It was great to see Peter Sagan come of age in the Ronde Van Vlandeeren, fought it in front of 1m cycle mad Belgians. Equally great to see coverage growing for the women's race as Lizzie Armitstead honoured the rainbow jersey as well. When was the last time we saw two world road champions winning one of the great classics.
And next on the list is the Queen of the classics, the Paris Roubaix. Anyone who has ridden even a few cobbles can imagine how brutal this race is - what we all know is that it is worth staying up for!
