Now the dust mud has settled on the first Paris-Roubaix Femmes, we can reflect on a race that delivered on all the anticipation and then some. A race for the ages, a barnstorming solo breakaway win, and enough tech to have my head in a spin. 

Earlier this week, we followed Trek-Segafredo’s Paris-Roubaix recon and their Project One Trek Domane. Three days later, Lizzie Deignan and Elisa Longo Borghini navigated the cobbled roads of northern France aboard the very same bikes to take first and third in the Roubaix velodrome. 

Marianne Vos stood on the second step of that podium, separating the two Trek teammates. Vos was aboard a Cervelo Caledonia that we had the pleasure of shooting just an hour before the start in Denain. 

The next we saw of those bikes was moments after the finish, caked in mud and literally draped in blood, sweat and tears. If bikes could talk, these three would have one heck of a story to tell. Enjoy this gallery of the Roubaix podium bikes.
