Niki Terpstra's Paris-Roubaix win on Strava!

I follow a few of the professional riders on Strava and it is always interesting to see where they are training and the speeds and outputs they are hitting.  It's not often you have a complete race loaded onto Strava, however, but in this case it is arguably the most famous in cycling outside the Grand Tours, Paris-Roubaix,  and posted by the winning rider himself, Niki Terpstra of the Belgian Omega Pharma - Quick-Step team to boot!  

So, here are his stats and they make for impressive reading: 

Distance: 158.6miles/255.24km
Moving Time: 6:09:07
Elapsed Time: 6:09:07
Elevation: 4,649ft/1417m
Average Speed: 25.8mph/41.52kph
Maximum Speed: 45.2miph/72.74kph

The alert amongst you will have spotted that the moving and elapsed times are exactly the same - no cake or comfort stops for Mr Terpstra! Not forgetting, of course, the 6 KOM's and entry into the Pantheon of Cycling Gods! 

A fascinating reminder of what it takes to win one of the Monuments of cycling.

Kudos!

"Out at six this morning to avoid the worst of the sticky heat. Needed a rear light for the first time since last April and that's bad news."
