told him after the race that he was cramping at the end.
The day's big surprise was Maaskrant. The Dutchman, who is in his first professional season, finished fourth at Paris-Roubaix after posting a 12th-place result at the Tour of Flanders. The Slipstream rider said that he withheld energy in the break to improve his position in the finale. He added that he knew the finale of Paris-Roubaix because he had ridden the under-23 version of the race three times and that that version has essentially the same finale as the big league event (although it is 100 km shorter than the elite Hell of the North).
Next Sunday, many of these same riders will fight out the Amstel Gold Race. Who will prevail? Check in at www.roadcycling.com and find out! Please support our advertisers.
