Paris-Roubaix. A race where crashes never seem to far away, as 200 riders speed their way across the rough cobbles of Northern France. Well, for most riders crashes seem a worry, but Team Sky’s Luke Rowe doesn’t seem to see the big deal.

The 25-year-old was the highest placed British finisher at this year’s edition of the cobbled monument, taking an impressive eighth place ahead of teammate Bradley Wiggins who finished in 18th.

But Rowe has a simple solution for avoiding crashes: stay at the front. “I’m not a crasher” he claims, which is not something that can be said for his teammate and fellow Welshman, Geraint Thomas who featured in the first episode of our ‘Show us your scars’ series.

Rowe now heads to the Critérium du Dauphiné week-long stage race to ride in support of Chris Froome, as he aims to seal a place in the upcoming Tour de France Sky squad.
