Queen For A Day: Paris-Roubaix Weekend!!!

This Sunday, the Queen of the Classics, the great Paris-Roubaix bicycle race gets underway... and I will be unable to join in the celebrations with My Own Sunday In Hell. My leg is feeling like I can ride, but I am nowhere near ready for a long one day ride. Maybe now I can sit back and take in the action from home.

After the exciting sprint finish at Flanders, I am looking forward to a thrillingly brutal Roubaix. Both Fabien Cancellara and Tom Boonen seem to be in fine form to challenge for the lead. Mark Cavendish, the world's leading sprinter and most hated professional will be in his first. Still, I would love to see Big George Hincapie finally take this race home with him.

I will not be able to test my mettle over 258km of cobbled hell, but this weekend several riders in the Taiwanese ranks will. The 380km Hualien-Taidong-Hualien race will also kick off, with an additional 300km race and a three day event for duffers.

I hope everyone will get out on the bike this weekend to celebrate my favorite race.
