Paris-Roubaix. Impressive ride by Truls Korsaeth, bad luck for Magnus Cort
In the third monument of the year, Paris-Roubaix, Truls Korsaeth showed everyone where he’s capable of by riding in the group of favorites for a long time going into the day’s final. Because of a crash just in front of him, before one of the final cobble sections, he was not able to stay in this group, finishing 33rd at the iconic finish line in the velodrome of Roubaix. Other riders of Astana Pro Team suffered in multiple crashes and mechanics, with the day’s leader Magnus Cort leaving the race early due to a crash, luckily without major injuries. Today’s winner was world champion Peter Sagan, finishing before Silvan Dillier and Niki Terpstra.
