Another week, another riveting classic – and plenty more besides. So here’s what we’ve been up to at CyclingTips this week:
Neal Rogers’ ‘Weekly Spin’ column took a look at Philippe Gilbert’s impressive Paris–Roubaix win, while Dane Cash gave a post-race assessment of how the pre-race favourites fared. There was also a cracking photo gallery from Paris–Roubaix. Caley Fretz, taking in the drama of Roubaix, wrote a thoughtful piece about Wout van Aert’s mixed fortunes on the day.
There’s plenty there for readers of an analytical persuasion this week, too, with a fascinating look at the numbers it takes to be competitive at the women’s Tour of Flanders, as well as the latest edition of the Peloton PhD series, which looked at the physics behind cornering.
It’s been a big week for tech on the site, too, with big, beautiful galleries continuing to trickle out from NAHBS and the weekend’s Sea Otter Classic (part one, part two, part three and four). Meanwhile, over in France, our team on the ground had a look at the suspension system used by Team Sky at Paris–Roubaix, and brought you a video looking at the tech of the race.
As always, make sure you check out the latest episode of the CyclingTips Podcast – this week brought to you from in the midst of Paris–Roubaix – and the special Holy Week Recon edition of our Youtube show.
