Tour of Flanders, the Inside Story

Les Woodland's book Tour of Flanders: The Inside Story - The rocky roads of the Ronde van Vlaanderen is available as an audiobook here. For the print and Kindle eBook versions, just click on the Amazon link on the right.

The race:

The 2011 Paris-Roubaix was 258 kilometers long and raced at an average speed of 42.126 km/hr.

There were 27 sectors of cobbles totaling 51.5 km of pavé.

109 riders started the race with 108 classified finishers

As for the weather, this was a nice, dry day, causing the riders to suffer from lots of dust.

Winner Johan Van Summeren left the front group of four riders with fifteen kilometers to go. That was the race. Despite riding the final five kilometers on a flat rear tire (it has been leaking for a while), he held on to finish 19 seconds ahead of 2010 winner Fabian Cancellara.

In the late kilometers Cancellara bridged up to the front break and then went on to win the field sprint for second.
