    Default If your willing to expand your sports mind

    and have access to Versus network, check out cyclism Sunday tomorrow at 5pm when they broadcast the cycling classic Paris-Roubaix.

    This is a one day bike race that highlights 15-20 sections of old rutted cobbled farm roads. It traverses many of the famous French battlefields from WWII, the Arenberg Forest most famously. Anyway, the race is a battle of attrition with no hills to separate the contenders, its all about surviving the terrain, and its primarily big, strong guys who win and not the little skinny guys that highlight the mountainous races.

    Anyway, if your into trying something new, I think this may open your mind to cycling.

    I love the Paris-Roubaix, will be sure to tune in.

    Unless there is a cricket, rugby, or darts competition on.

    The last hour was spectacular too! Great racing and the kind of racing that could actually grab the attention of an American sports fan. Give it a go, you wont be disappointed.

    This sounds very interesting. I wish I could see it.

    if this pic of the winner on the last challenging sector of cobbles isn't compelling, well I guess its NASCAR, MLB, or Golf for you!
