    Anyone riding it this year?

    Anyone ridden it in the past and have any advice for someone, me, riding it this year?

    Anyone riding it and want to buddy up for training and the ride itself?

    Make sure everything is attached very firmly to your bike!

    This is an inch that won't go away for me. Anyone else thinking of riding it in 2018 ?

    Looks good, i want pain. However it's difficult to tell whether the 'registration is now closed' is for the 2017 or 2018 race.

    If it's 2017, anyone know when the registration opens for 2018?

    just to say along with Fonze, the blog post was very good, and useful. I will carry a spare seat clamp bolt!

    So how many people are interested in riding this year ? I would be happy to do some work in the background if there is interest. I certainly fancy a bit of company (or at least some people to share the suffering).

    Can't believe I'm the only one on here going to ride the sportive, but training miles are done bike's prepared and has been collected to be taken over to Roubaix. I'll be reunited with it on Friday and off to the start Saturday morning. Excited is an understatement.
