Which One of Us? PR17-8
"Which one of us is going to win this thing?" seemed to be the question on the mind of Sebastian Langeveld (Cannondale-Drapac) as he looked over at Zdenek Stybar (Quickstep). The third member of this escape trio was the reigning Olympic Gold Medalist, Greg Van Avermaet (BMC). They were racing through the section of heroes, the final serious section of pave that is lined with photos of the heroes of cycling over the ages at Paris Roubaix. The organizers had placed the yellow barricades to keep everyone on the rough cobbles and off of the smooth shoulders. Early the barricades also held the posters of the victors of the Hell of the North.
