Paris - Roubaix 1982 Pictorial

The 1982 Paris-Roubaix was one long dust storm. As the race sped across the northern French plain its path could be tracked from miles around by the dust clouds it raised. Jan Raas won, speeding into the track at Roubaix to win alone. I found these photos while researching the Raas feature and thought I'd share them with you.

Paris-Roubaix is a tortuous event. If it rains, the tracks are muddy and slippery and the going is tough. If, as in 1982, the weather is dry, then the tracks are dusty and the going is just as tough...

Jan Raas takes his chance on the run in to Roubaix.
