MELBURN ROOBAIX 2018

RIDE REPORT

Tom Boonen really missed out!  The 13th edition of the 'Hell of the Northcote' included a brand new secret start location, 9 new sectors of pavé, a fistful of gravel and a barrel of laughs.  That was the flavour of the 2018 Melburn Roobaix, ridden by young and old, fixed and free under great mid-winter conditions.   


Stopping for coffee breaks, baby cupcakes, and mulled wine was all part of the good time.  


If you were sat on the couch - here's what you missed.
