Paris-Roubaix: Why the fat tyres?

Why do they run 27mm and wider tyres at Paris-Roubaix?

This is why. 'Nuff said.


David has worked on the tech team since July 2012. Previously he was editor of and before that staff writer at RCUK. He's a seasoned cyclist of all disciplines, from road to mountain biking, touring to cyclo-cross, he only wishes he had time to ride them all. He's mildly competitive, though he'll never admit it, and is a frequent road racer but is too lazy to do really well. He currently resides in the Cotswolds.
