Francesco Moser

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

The Sheriff won three consecutive editions of Paris-Roubaix, from 1978-80, long after the race had regained its horrible footing. That was after two seconds and before a pair of thirds. His Flanders credentials include two seconds. In 1979 he won Gent-Wevelgem four days before his second Roubaix triumph.

Tournament Mojo

Used his Italian cool to undermine the hot-blooded Marc Madiot in round 1. It doesn't hurt that a second generation of Mosers is starting on their cobbles resume. Where are the young Madiots?

Gilbert Duclos-Lasalle

Cobbled Credentials Again Please?

Another of the Paris-Roubaix specialists (not a bad occupation for a Frenchman), Gibus won his two titles in the Hell of the North at ages 37 and 38. Plus a Bordeaux-Paris from back in his earlier years.

Tournament Mojo

Still shaking my head over his upset of Fausto Coppi, who won on the cobbles when he felt like it, with ease. Seriously, what is wrong with you people?
