2001 Paris Roubaix

Paris Roubaix is by far my favorite race of the season. And of course, every year, I join most American cycling fans in cheering for George Hincapie as he takes on his "white whale". In 2006 George looked like he was in position to win this race when his steerer tube broke. However, I think George was definitely the strongest rider in 2001. I know George doesn't win this race but it doesn't matter. Every time I watch this I find myself urging George on through crashes and punctures and I absolutely feel for him when it is clear that the win will not be his.
