Kristoff laments the cameraless wheels in Roubaix

"I took a lot of risk with the cameraless wheels I've been using for the last few weeks," he said. He punctured three times and then changed to a normal wheel.


Alexander Kristoff arrived at Paris-Roubaix in a great state of form. The Norwegian came to win the Ghent-Wevelgem and to be third in the Tour of Flanders. Therefore, he was in the short list of favorites for the Paris-Roubaix. However, an error in the choice of the wheels separated him from the race, puncturing up to three times a wheel without tubular and having to return, already with Pretty lost time, on normal wheels.

"I took a lot of risk with the cameraless wheels that I've been using for the last few weeks," stated in Cyclingnews. "I knew it was a big risk, but these wheels are very good ... I have been successful with them in Belgium for the last few weeks and I felt good during the race ... until I got punctured, we just would not try it again next year" , he concluded. Finally, he finished in the position 56 to 14 minutes of the new winner, Philippe Gilbert.
