Old school wheels. Double-wrapped handlebars. Fat tubulars. And loads of suffering. This Sunday, Paris-Roubaix is on.

Here’s my favorite P-R finish ever. From the 1990 edition:

Team Type 1 Georgia-Bound

I’m a fan of the Bean Team. The VeloSon and I make a point of cheering them on every year at the Charlotte Crit, and I was psyched to see Neil Shirley on the podium last year at Greenville. It’s the winning combination of coffee and cycling, for sure.

But this year I’m pulling for Team Type 1. I’ve been a diabetic almost as long as I’ve been a cyclist, so it’s natural for me to get behind a group of guys who are putting together a season that’s downright inspiring. After seeing them tear it up in Taiwan I’m pulling for them to have a big race in Georgia.
