Van Dijk – I’m more excited for Hour Record than Paris-Roubaix

If there is one rider in the women’s peloton best suited to Paris-Roubaix, it’s Ellen van Dijk. The Trek-Segafredo rider has the flat-line power to motor across the cobbles and, as the time trial World Champion, the fortitude to sustain an attack.

Yet after being heavily touted as the favorite for last year’s race and then crashing out with a serious concussion, the Dutch rider admits she’s anxious about Saturday’s race and is looking forward more to her next major goal, attempting to set the UCI Hour Record.
