April Showers

I think a decent proportion of the online community wanted it to rain tomorrow.

I'm guessing but I think we all want a diversion from the current trend of hyper-speed dust bowl races. A return to gladiatorial battles, man, machine and the unforgiving elements. To the pro Peleton I apologise for praying for rain, but as Sean Kelly put it,

"A Paris-Roubaix without rain is not a true Paris-Roubaix. Throw in a little snow as well, it's not serious."

So if it good enough for Sean it's good enough for me.

Fortunately/unfortunately (depending on your perspective) it looks like it'll be dry tomorrow, the only showers the riders will see will be concrete.
