Gruber Galley: The Queen of the Classics

    It’s been a few days, but we can’t get the dust from Paris-Roubaix out of our heads and hearts. The guys rode brilliantly.  Though two in the top 10 wasn’t the end-all goal for our classics season — our aims were a bit higher — to see the bright pink of the team at the sharp end of Paris-Roubaix was enthralling.

    But we exit the cobbled season, ultimately, with heavy hearts. The loss of Michael Goolaerts is arresting and tragic, and we send our love to the young Belgian’s friends, family, and teammates at Veranda’s Willems-Crelan. We leave you with images from the season’s most brutal of races — one that reminds us that however harsh the racing, we are all one family on the road.
