If you watched the 2015 Paris-Roubaix this weekend, then you probably already knew it was fast. However, Strava tells a better story. As the professional riders uploaded their data from the race, the real winners were revealed.
While all the KOMs from the five-star sectors have held from 2012–2014, there are some new kings in town on other cobbled stretches of the course.
Andre Griepel’s attack with 80km to go scored him the KOM on the Haveluy à Wallers. He didn’t stop there and went on to reset the mark that Koen de Kort had set in training two days earlier on the Hornaing à Wandignies.
In addition, Yannick Martinez stole the crown on the Warlaing à Brillion and the Saint-Python sectors; the latter will be featured in the Tour this year. Davide Frattini took top honors on the Pave de Quérénaing à Maing.
Degenkolb won the Paris-Roubaix...but he didn't win on Strava. So does it count?
Strava > Pro Peloton
I enjoy when pros use strava because I like to check out their data. It kind of sets the bar, so to speak
I loathe the day a pro comes and takes away all the local segments, I'll have nothing else to look forward to!
