A Paris-Roubaix Analysis

Tom Boonen's hot streak continued for another week and I can see why.

Leipheimer. Full disclaimer - I said he'd break away with 15 kilometers remaining - but let's not split hairs. As I wrote on my personal blog, Leipheimer took me to task for that prediction as past Boonen history hasn't indicated a solo win was in the cards. Regardless, I'm still pretty happy about my lucky guess ... err ... I mean educated prediction.

Speaking of pats on the back - how about Taylor Phinney! A 15th place finish in his first big boy Paris-Roubaix. And I have to agree with George Hincapie - Phinney will be the first American to win the Hell of the North.
