Roger de Vlaeminck, Winning Paris-Roubaix, (1977)
Monsieur Paris–Roubaix
Perhaps no other rider has delivered in Paris–Roubaix than Roger de Vlaeminck. de Vlaeminck holds the Roubaix record with four victories. He also finished second four times and third once. This record may never be surpassed. But much more than mere numbers was de Vlaeminck’s total mastery of the pavé. “He had an amazing feel for this race, rolling over stones as if he were on asphalt”, recalls de Vlaeminck’s directeur sportif Franco Cribriori. “The evening of Paris–Roubaix, we threw out all of the wheels except those belonging to Roger, which were still serviceable. In fact, they were like new.” de Vlaeminck’s mastery and successes at Roubaix are impressive enough that this virtuoso of the pavé has become known by the moniker Monsieur Paris-Roubaix.

April 13, my favorite spring classic. My friend Joe Parkin was at one point one of only six Americans to ever finish this race.

When people go through my vinyl collection they always stop at Ultravox and go WTF? (Given my crust punk tastes.) I got this from payola in trade while being the music director at KGSM, Gustavus Adolphus College, my freshman year, 1980. All my Ralph Records came through the same path.

No good deed goes unpunished! Sprained ankle and messed up gastrocnemius thanks to pushing a stuck car in front of our house last Friday. Not Speedplay compatible. I now officially hate winter.
