I’ve finally transferred all the old content over to this new site format and added in a lot of stuff that wasn’t on here before. I’m pretty please with the results – there’s been a lot of work involved.
Despite the removal of what was considered the most dangerous section of cobbles on the Paris-Roubaix parcours – the dreaded ForÃªt d’Arenberg – the lead rider for French team Cofidis, Stuart O’Grady, believes Sunday’s epic race could actually be harder without the famously-brutal section.
“Before you could feel the race would chill out a bit (after Arenberg), as the race would then enter good sections of asphalt, they would take in some food and drinks and then prepare for the next section. But now, they’ve replaced it with absolute goat-tracks, it’s constantly twisting left and right; there just no place to recover,” he said. “It’s just going to be full-on.” (Cyclingnews)
Finally I don’t follow football too closely, but I did find this result very amusing. Good effort from the Norfolk boys.
