Hammond blasts to fourth in Paris-Roubaix

Roger Hammond, Paris-Roubaix 2010

A strong collective performance for the Cervélo team saw Roger Hammond take fourth, both his and Britain's best Paris-Roubaix result since he took third in 2004. Following his seventh place in Flanders, Roubaix pulled down the curtain on Hammond's best all-Classics campaign since his breakthrough year in 2004.

But that was far from being all for Cervelo in this year's Paris-Roubaix. With Thor Hushovd in second, and Hammond in fourth, the Swiss squad were easily the strongest team collectively, whilst Jeremy Hunt was one of the leading riders in the early break - proved by his 18th place at the finish, not to mention spearheading the race out of the notoriously difficult Arenberg Forest section.
