Seán and myself in Tarbes with Alain Dithurbide. Alain and his wife run this really great bike shop in the centre of Tarbes. He is a former professional and competeted in the 1984 Tour de France. Alain is a Colnago dealer, I went to get a part for my C40. http://www.dithurbide.com/
Paris-Roubaix "The Queen of the Classics", is the toughest race of the year. It's up north as far from the Pyrénées as you can get and as the saying goes "it's grim up north". Down here we'll all be watching with interest as local boy Matthieu Ladagnous of FDJ is expected to be there or there about. Matthieu is from Nay between Lourdes and Pau. He has finished 6th in Gent-Wevelgem and 5th in Tour des Flandres in 2013 and was 12th in Paris-Roubaix in 2012. He is an experienced track rider having been a National, European and World Champion, perhaps his experience will be useful in Roubaix tomorrow.
ALLEZ MATTHIEU!!!!!!!! Bonne chance à Paris-Roubaix.

Hope Bradley Wiggins makes a quick and full recovery after being hit by a van when out training. The Tour de France winner and Olympic TT champion is in hospital tonight after a crash while training near his home in Eccleston, Lancashire.
10 days ago I saw 2 FDJ riders on Col du Tourmalet. I know one of them, Matthieu Ladagnous who is from Pau. The other remained a mystery until yesterday afternoon when he sprinted his way to being Champion of France and a household name. Nacer Bouhanni is 21 years old, we will be hearing a lot from him in the future.
