Gilbert Duclose-Lasalle

When asked about his training for Paris-Roubaix, the 2-time Hell of the North winner said that he went out and rode 5 hours per day 5 days per week in a 52x15! 25 Hours a week in a 52x15!! On flat, windy, rough, cobbled, rainy, wet roads. Hey, it worked though!

I look out the window right now and it's both windy and pouring down rain. I could maybe do an hour in a 52x15 in this stuff.......but 5 hours?? Uh, probably not. Of course, GDL would probably think I'm nuts for riding 5 hours on the indoor trainer.
