Movistar @ Paris Roubaix

This is the craziness of the Pro/World Tour that a team that has no interest in this race has to ride it. Surely they should be able to opt out & we could see a team who has a passion for this race to be there. Maybe one of the Pro Continental outfits would animate the race.

So the team was using the new Electronic Campag which looks nice, but still looks like it's far from a finished version. The team used the Dogmas (mainly) with some riders opting to go for the KOBH (probably those riders who wanted to attempt to get to the velodrome)

I like the Movistar colours, on a bike they look stunning. Old school Campag rims have been pulled out of a cellar somewhere clad with 25mm Conti Competition tyres. Not a massive concession to comfort when many teams have settled on 27/28mm tyres. I didn't notice many riders opting for double wrapped bars either.
