PEZ Roadside: Chasing Roubaix!

Roadside Reload: On Sunday April 8th 2012, I got a second chance for a once in a lifetime experience of chasing the most feared Monument of the year – Paris-Roubaix. And just like my ride across these hellish roads a couple days prior, this day was nothing short of ‘epic’

His ‘body weight over the pedals’ style is similar to his Capo, John Degenkolb who sits in his slipstream awaiting the mindful moment. . .
