Could just be the light of the camera, but the front wheel looks like some of mine--bare spots on the anodizing at the spokes. I guess it is possible on a gritty ride like Paris-Roubaix to get some wear, but I can't imagine those guys really using the brakes much on a ride like that. And, while again, it could be the camera not showing a second rider in the picture, it appears the guy on the left us a little slow---everyone else is looking at Tafi. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
