Mads Pedersen: Paris-Roubaix suits me better than the Tour of Flanders

'The dream scenario will be to finish alone with two minutes... but it's not going to happen,' says the former world champion

Approaching the Monument which he says suits him the best, Mads Pedersen believes he is in a good position to challenge for Paris-Roubaix victory on Sunday. 

The former world champion was involved in the same brutal crash as Wout van Aert at Dwars door Vlaanderen last week. He was left battered and bruised, but explained that he is almost fully recovered and ready to go again once more on Sunday.
