Paris-Roubaix - Mavic at the heart of the action
Short documentary following the Mavic Neutral Assistance team for a bumpy ride on course during the 104th edition of Paris-Roubaix. Preparing wheels and vehicles for this demanding, 258km race is a big task. And for the most intimate view of the technical challenges, the filmmakers go behind the handlebars of the yellow motorbikes ridden by the Mavic technicians to see the attacks, breaks, crashes and punctures up close. Thanks to CyclingTips for the heads up
It’s from back in 2011, but I really like the jump-cut GoPro wheel change edits. Very French.
The winning move at Roubaix 2014. Watch closely.

A little gif of Roulston’s Roubaix mishap. Hayden, my apologies in advance if this makes it back to you.
What makes “The Price is Right” such an enduring franchise is its readiness as a marketing platform. My appropriation of it here is steeped in irony.
Racing bikes on the cobbles is hard.
From Kathy LeMond’s twitter feed. Got to love Greg.
I hear he was doing Roubaix commentary somewhere other than the US.
Every time they cut to some slow-mo cobble replay, I’m reminded of this old beer ad the Internet has preserved for me.
Obviously, I’m getting pretty fired up for tomorrow.
