The 2018 edition of Paris-Roubaix was chaotic and beautiful, but also marked by devastation.
In this podcast we discuss Michael Goolaerts’ tragic death, and the unique nature of how serious incidents are handled in real time in professional cycling. We also break down Peter Sagan’s demonstrative victory, the tactical mistakes made by Quick-Step Floors, and the impressive, breakthrough ride by Swiss champion Sylvain Dillier.
This week’s Nerd Alert focuses on Sagan’s unique bike, his “unconventional” late-race stem adjustment, and the special frame models the pros use at Paris-Roubaix.
