Beat the Pros (4/7): Paris-Roubaix 2023!
This time, we’re following in the footsteps of MVDP’s decisive final attack on Paris-Roubaix!
A nervous race, **only 16.5km long and very flat **
MVDP did it in 19’57, but what about us?

A reminder of the Pros’ race, with Van Aert’s start in the “Carrefour de l’Arbre”, followed by his puncture, which forced him to let go the Dutchman : Chaos & Cobbles In Hell! | Paris-Roubaix 2023 Highlights - Men - YouTube
Flat and Furious for this week’s event. It might be a mid-August week, but I’m sure plenty of people will like riding this one, should not even take 25’ for the fastest riders
See you on Thursday !
First session slot finished : The winner, Nguyen Joe, established a time of 24’32 !
Can we beat that time and get closer to the 19’57 of MVDP ? Come join us or watch the stream (I’ll be streaming the 7:30pm CET session as usual on Twitch )
Wish there was a time that matched up better to my workout schedule. I was flogging myself between 5-7am PDT.
Maybe next time.
But I do love a flat time trial.

I could just barely hang in there with the 2 super riders A. Penn and W.Claes.
Still, the morning ride stays in the lead so far and the time to beat remains at 24’32 !
