Cancellara crashes on the Hornaing
A number of teams headed out for a reconnaissance mission over parts of the 2013 Paris-Roubaix parcours, with two-time winner Fabian Cancellara (RadioShack Leopard) crashing for the second time in two days.
The overwhelming favourite for Sunday's race was on the Hornaing sector of cobbles near Wandignies-Hamage with teammates on Thursday morning when he crashed. He sat in the RadioShack team car alongside directeur sportif Dirk Demol for the next part of the reconnaissance, but was back on his bike again by the sector at Orchies.
Meantime, Lotto Belisol, Sky, Vacansoleil-DCM, Blanco, Argos-Shimano and Astana were also out in force, with this gallery capturing the action.
