PeloPics: PEZ photographer, John Thomson, is missing Roubaix and Paris. Who can blame him? What could be better than snapping the top riders on the cobbles of Roubaix and the top models at the couture shows in Paris. Here os John’s ‘alternative’ Paris-Roubaix ‘photo-shoot’.

John says: “In normal times I would probably not combine photos of Paris Roubaix and Paris Fashion Week in the same gallery. But a little distraction in these times may be welcome. This gallery is an homage to the great city of Paris and the cobbled Hell of the North. Maybe in October we will get the first wet edition in almost 20 years! Huge thanks to Richard and Al for their editorial approval.”
