Tales from the peloton, April 7, 2009

There is something about the Classics which makes one sentimental. Perhaps it is the years of history in which these races are steeped: the bone-rattling challenge of the cobbles, the fortitude needed to endure the sometimes hypothermic conditions, the man-to-man battles where only the strongest emerge victorious. All of these elements are combined in the Classics to create a gripping drama that captures the hearts of fans from around the world.

Our staff has chosen a few favourite moments which define the Classics - this first installment consists of ten moments in recent cobbled Classics history which have exemplified the spirit of these great races. We hope you enjoy these memories.
