    Tom Boonen (Quick Step) wins Paris-Roubaix 2011 ... can ASO predict the future?Tom Boonen will win Paris-Roubaix 2011. Yes indeed, you read it correctly ... the day after the victory in Ghent-Wevelgem for the Belgian rider of the Quick Step team, I already announce you that he will win the 109th edition of Paris-Roubaix 2 weeks later. And that's thanks to the predictive capabilities of ASO!

    It'll still be 2 weeks before the 109th edition of the Hell of the North will take place, but ASO has already published the Journal de l'étape (race summary) on the official web site letour.fr. According to the information we can read there, the Belgian rider who has already won Paris-Roubaix in 2005, 2008 and 2009 would win it once again in 2011 by finishing ahead of Fabian Cancellara and Alessandro Ballan.Tom Boonen

    When we dive into this a little bit more in detail, we quickly realise that ASO didn't develop any predictive capacities in Corsica during the Critérium International but that this is of course a test of the publication system and that they used the first part of the summary of Paris-Roubaix 2008 for this test. Indeed, it was three years ago that Boonen won his second Paris-Roubaix, 3 years after the first, that Juan Antonio Flecha was still racing for Rabobank and that the Boonen, Cancellara and Ballan trio arrived together at the vélodrome in Roubaix.

    It's a pity to see that letour.fr apparently doesn't have a pre-production system which would allow to do those kind of tests without making the content visible to any Internet user who knows the address ...

    Paris-Roubaix 2011

    This is of course a humoristic article which doesn't in any way predict the outcome of Paris-Roubaix 2011. Request to all riders who can pretend to win this race: please do come to the start in Compiègne anyway on the 10th of April, nothing has been decided yet!

    Information for all visitors of www.velowire.com ... in the upcoming days and weeks you should be able to find plenty of information about Paris-Roubaix 2011 and photos of the race on this web site!
