Rabobank's Belgian veteran, Marc Wauters, remained upbeat about his Roubaix swansong in Sunday's race. "Mainly, I had a lot of dust in my eyes," he said afterwards. Despite finishing 37th, Wauters was satisfied with his performance and told De Morgen, "I do have a satisfied feeling left after my last Paris-Roubaix." He explained that Cancellara was just too good on the day, and at his age it was tough to keep up with the young guys. The 37-year-old said he'd be back next year with a beer in his hand as a PR man for Rabobank.
