Spring Classic Season

I'm a fan and have been watching them... but it's better to ride and watch as you relate better.

This weekend has two Monuments.  Paris Roubaix is very well known:

The Water Valley 220 is lesser known.  But it's gaining in popularity ; )

Us amateurs head out to test our mettle on an uncobbled course that substitutes in plenty of gravel, a course with more vertical, but 37km less.  Alberta is cooperating by delivering rain/snow and temperatures expected to range +-0C.  But even that "smaller effort" brings context to Spring Classic watching - those guys race hard, and those races are long.
