Full Carbon at Paris-Roubaix

Not an aluminum rim in sight on the cobbles this year.

Via Velonews:

Carbon ruled on Sunday. Sky, Argos-Shimano, Blanco, Orica-GreenEdge, BMC Racing, and others had only their normal Shimano C50 tubulars on hand; Garmin-Sharp and Katusha brought only their usual Mavic Cosmic Carbone Ultimate, a wheel so abhorrent of metal that it uses carbon spokes and a carbon hub shell; Movistar, Lotto-Belisol, and Europcar used Campagnolo’s ultra-light Hyperon and aerodynamic Bora carbon rims. There was no discernible spike in rim failures, long considered the Achilles heel of carbon on cobbles.
