2011 Paris Roubaix No-one expected his triumph. Not even the winner. Paris-Roubaix, the Queen of the Classics, lived through an authentic people?s revolution in 2011 as giant sized team worker Johan Van Summeren left the favorites behind in a cloud of dust and the race?s fearsome cobbles. Where exactly were the opposition, like Belgian champion Tom Boonen? Crashed, punctured - and crashed again. Double Roubaix winner Fabian Cancellara? Outwitted. World Champion Thor Hushovd? Like the rest of the field, out powered, and outclassed. By a total outsider. All this, on a day when the odds of success could never have slimmer for the victor. On a day when low cunning and high gambles conspired successfully in the most arduous, life-and-limb threatening event on the calendar. On a day when one of the most fascinating Classics of the season gave fans worldwide a race - and race result - to talk about for a decade. Then when Johan Van Summeren raised his cobblestone trophy high in Roubaix velodrome, it was a victory for cycling?s working class dreamers everywhere. Commentary by Phil Liggett & Paul Sherwen.
