How Peter Sagan Won Paris Roubaix

I don’t actually know, since I’m still half in the bag and not really an expert on cycling, but I will say that this 2018 Paris-Roubaix was the most satisfying edition I’ve experienced in a while (and that includes one I’ve seen live).

How did Peter Sagan (the World Champion!) escape from a peloton of favorites and bridge to the breakaway? This will probably be the question that haunts those in that group for weeks, but it’s a complete mystery to me how anyone would let a man like that break away. Then again, this is why cycling is so fascinating, and why Paris-Roubaix is maybe one of the most unpredictable races in the season.
