eDLoNNiE's guide to Paris Roubaix
Paris Roubaix has always tugged at my heart strings. The epic nature of this day, enhanced by occasional rainstorms, has long ago surpassed the Super Bowl as my favorite one day sporting event. PB2009 shapes up to be a very interesting race! Last year's winner, Tom Boonen, definitely remains a sentimental favorite for yours truly, but it seems like this year (witness Tours of Flanders), that Pozzato has figured out a way to get into Tomika's head, and basically neutralize him. Now, the serious question; who to watch? For my money, I'd have to go with Devolder, although my heart wants to go with "I just need someone to hold me" gorgeous George". This poor guy has had more bad luck at PB than anyone, but truthfully, I don't see an end to his drought.
