Truth be told, I never get that fired up about the Grand Tours come summertime, I have an infinite amount of respect for the (clean) riders who pour their heart and soul into these events but what gets me going are the Spring Classics, especially Paris-Roubaix. I was extremely fortunate to attend this race in 1997 while Rockshox was developing their road fork. If I can manage to adequately translate that experience into words, I will do so here at a later time.

Paris-Roubaix is a thing of beauty, the specialists of this event are so beyond pro. They've ascended to an entirely new level in order to deal with so much pain, suffering, and toil. Masterlink Films has just released The Road To Roubaix and is without a doubt, hands down, the BEST cycling film I've ever seen. If you have any interest in Paris-Roubaix please, I beg you, do yourself a favor and see this film, It is time well spent.

Thanks to my honey for recognizing that I wasn't going be able to sit on my hands and wait until Christmas to watch this film. She let me unwrap this one early!!

Thanks for reading

Shotty, have you seen "A Sunday in Hell"? Classic Paris-Roubaix. I've got it on VHS somewheres.

Love the blog! Didn't know you had it in you.
