And those are the happy faces.
It takes blood and guts to be this cool but I'm still just a cliché.

Magnus Maximus Bäckstedt was visible until Arnberg forest  :evil:
There are contradicting rumour as to whether he double punctured or just broke his wheels. I heard  about the conflicting rumours from a zipp guy so...

Indeed, I found a live stream to danish TV via cyclingfans.com! Didn't understand a word of it though, but fortunately, I had two monitors running with the race on one and a streaming conversation with BDST that was almost a commentary!

That's why the Paris roubaix is, and will always be, the best race; it's not controllable by anyone!

Most consistent reports were both his rims cracked. Big advantage of this was that Maaskant was now free to ride his own race and finishing fourth during his first Paris-Roubaix. Had Backstedt been up front untill the end, Maaskant would have had to work for him.

All those Flanders flags must be a massive boost if you are a Flandrian.
