PARIS ROUBAIX 2018-Cette fois, il le tient ! Après cinq participations marquées par la malchance, Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) s'est enfin imposé sur Paris-Roubaix, remportant ainsi son deuxième Monument après le Tour des Flandres 2016. Le Slovaque, qui a attaqué à 54km de l'arrivée, est revenu sur l'échappée matinale en solitaire avant de s'imposer au sprint devant Silvan Dillier (AG2R La Mondiale) alors que Niki Terpstra (Quick Step-Floors), sorti trop tardivement, complète le podium. Sagan devient ainsi le premier champion du monde à triompher de l'Enfer du Nord depuis Bernard Hinault en 1981. @petosagan @silvandillier @parisroubaixcourse #parisroubaix#cyclisme#souvenir . ~This time, he's holding it! After five bad-luck appearances, Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) finally made his mark on Paris-Roubaix, winning his second Monument after the Tour of Flanders 2016. The Slovak, who attacked 54km from the finish, came back on the solo breakaway before winning the sprint ahead of Silvan Dillier (AG2R La Mondiale) while Niki Terpstra (Quick Step-Floors), released too late, completes the podium. Sagan becomes the first world champion to triumph over the North Hell since Bernard Hinault in 1981.
Hell’s Angel ... Jan Raas ... Paris Roubaix 1982 ... In a dry and dusty edition of the Hell of the North an elite group formed including Dutch hard man Jan Raas, Fast Eddy Planckaert, “Monsieur Paris-Roubaix” Roger De Vlaeminck wearing the Belgian tricolore jersey, “The Badger” himself Bernard Hinault and a few others ... Raas’s Raleigh Ti team mate Ludo Peters had escaped up the road and looked to be on his way to a memorable victory until defending champion Hinault decided otherwise putting the hammer down, reeling him back in ... Raas patiently chose his moment well placing a fierce attack on the last small incline in the final kilometres quickly managing to put a decent gap between himself and the chasing pack, holding them off all the way to the velodrome to take the victory by just 16 seconds to the next rider Yvon Bertin with Gregor Braun joining them on the podium ... Jan Raas ... Rolling stone ... Legend ... #thewelgian#janraas#parisroubaix#hellofthenorth#steelisreal#cyclinglegend#cyclinghistory#anneclarke#ourdarkness#volumeup
Something about the understated way they do signs in France sits well with me. So I took a lot of sign pictures in seven days this summer. This was from the junction where the pavement met a sector of the cobblestones in Stage 9 of the Tour de France. #sign#roadsign#tourdefrance#bersée#pavé#overgrown

Double trouble ... Paris-Roubaix 1968 ... Eddy Merckx & Herman Van Springel here in one of my favourite photographs from the “Hell of the North” ... Herman very much old school flahute style rocking wooden rims and a snarl ... The young phenomenon Merckx on his gleaming italian bicycle shining in iconic Faema livery with matching rainbow jersey won the previous year his face full of dirt and intent ... Both with reversed “klak” or cap ... So cool ... These pair along with Ward Sels tore up the race with 56kms to go ... Sels flatted and the Merckx-Van Springel Express hammered it’s way toward the velodrome, there was no catching these two ... In the short clip they make riding the stones look so easy .. On reaching the velodrome Eddy was irrepressible controlling from the front sprinting ahead of Van Springel to take his first Roubaix in the rainbow jersey ... Special ... Eddy & Herman ... Flandriens ... Flahute DNA ...
