    Paris Roubaix. Love the classics

    Yes, yes, I know. It's not mountain biking but I love the classics and PR is the queen of the classics. Don't let anybody tell you that road bikers don't need bike handling skills. These guys are true badasses

    Peter Sagan when he avoided Fabian Cancellara was one of the best road bike handling displays I've ever seen. Not sure if that's shown in the link above. If not...you have to see it. It was pretty awesome. But...Peter does come from a mountain bike racing background so it makes sense that he has some skills.

    Here's the crash and Sagan jumping/riding over top of Cancellara and staying on his bike.

    Peter Sagan is a better bike handler than all but a handful of people on this board. If that.

    Holy Shi!t. Now that I watch it again I see he actually ran over his bike. I only saw it once before in regular time and thought he mostly avoided it.

    Idk if he (Sagan) is racing in the Ardennes, but he could have a good showing there as well.

    He's a stud FO SHO

    Speed, skinny tires and cobblestone always make for some interesting competition.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Im impressed too but I have to admit I feel more and more disturbed by all those motorcycles and cars. I mean you see one the guys on a motorcycle stopping and taking pics instead of helping. A spectstor is helping, or is he a crew member? And at least for filming they could use drones right?

    Until the drone drops out of the sky and kills someone, like almost happened this winter in a FIS World Cup ski slalom race in Italy this winter.

    With the exception of neutral support (the mavic guys) the motos are either media or officials. If medical is needed, then the medical team takes over. Otherwise, assistance is by team support only.
