Paris Roubaix: 'A Bit Like Fun'.

All Photos: Velonews





If all can be said about this Paris-Roubaix is that it was a mixture of pain and pleasure. Follow Orica GreenEDGE as Backstage Pass honors plenty of pain with very little pleasure. Sebastian Langeveld finished seventh and best Orica rider, a good day for him but for many a terrible experience. Watching Yoann Offredo's nasty accident with a traffic sign made me shudder.

Enjoy the amazing images and sit back and enjoy an entertaining Backstage Pass!
