John Degenkolb: «This is the most beautiful race»


Ghent-Wevelgem winner John Degenkolb is convinced he can play a part in Paris-Roubaix, his last classic of the Spring season.

“It's been a long classics season and I'm glad it's over in a way and the best way to finish would be to do well here tomorrow,” said the Giant Shimano sprinter.

“It's never easy to say things like this by I think Roubaix suits me better than Flanders,” said the German rider, winner of Paris-Tours in 2013, who finished 15th last week in the Ronde.

“Last week I managed to stay with the best for a long time but in the finale I had no strength left. I'm still in pretty good form now and I'm confident I can stay in the leading group as long as possible. Then we'll see what happens,” he added.

Whatever the outcome, Degenkolb is definite: “This is the most beautiful race!”
