Slightly boring post, but this is what happens if you take your bike through the 160 mile Paris-Roubaix Cyclo in the rain!

Looks nice and dirty. I can just imagine how you must have looked after the ride!

I rode the 260 km.
The weather was gruesome, but cleared up just as I reached Arenberg.
Still have a few numb fingers. What a "race"!

Those are some of the most beautiful photos of a Nag I've seen. Truely authentic, not the showroom floor prissyness we all post on this board. Thanks for sharing the pics and the moment. Any pics of you during or post ride? I've missed having a wet Paris-Roubaix for a number of years. The dry dusty is kinda boring to me for that race.

That's the way a bike should look. Plan on doing that ride next time round just need to figure the logistics out since I live in the USA.
