Another northern classic, another disappointment for Euskaltel. Paris - Roubaix was in my opinion even worse than the Tour of Flandres because again Juan Jose Oroz and Markel Irizar were the only ones to finish but this time with a 71th and 91th place. Koldo left the race after a crash but he doesn't have any real injuries. The others probably all left the race because of the cold and the terrible conditions. But on the bright side, those classics are over and the next classics (Amstel, Fleche Wallone and Liege) Euskaltel should be able to make a better performance.
