Paris Roubaix..What happened?(6 posts)

Paris Roubaix..What happened?Lazy
Apr 15, 2001 9:14 AM
Ok, so I woke up a little late today and caught the last 45 mins or so of the P-R. I turned it on just as Museeuw was chasing the break after a flat. Help me out here, but how in the **** (insert expletive of your choice here) did USPS allow Hincapie to be in that break with FOUR Domo guys and absolutely no support? Did something funky happen, or did they do a poor job supporting their guy? Someone please help, I'm at a loss here.
Also, anyone know what Pedals Wessman uses?Onrhodes

Steffan Wessman was constantly clipping out of his pedals. I'm curious to know if he was using Time (Telekom's pedal sponsor) or Campagnolo (like Zabel).
I think most of the Domo guys use Campy pedals, so I'm curious to see which pedal system was ruining Wessman's chances.
Why not mtb pedalsJim

As muddy as this years race was, why didn't some of the guys go to mtb pedals? Also the mtb shoes would have been alot better when they where doing wheel changes or putting a foot down while approaching a wreck. I saw that some of the bikes wher using 'cross forks for mud clearance wouldn't the pedals make sense also?
Yeah, that's what I was thinking...bigdave

Like my mud-proof Time's... they'd be perfect. Hmm... don't know why they wouldn't slap them on the week before to get used to them, then they'd be perfect for the race.

Slightly off topic, it would be cool to see a MTB'er who's a good roadie try the PR someday... Cadel Evans, Roland Green, etc.
