Tao Geoghegan Hart - 3rd place in Junior Paris Roubaix

07/04/13 - Roubaix Velodrome
Tao has made it to the podium in the junior version of the world's toughest one day cycle race; Paris Roubaix (also known as l'Enfer du Nord) 
Riding for British Cycling's GB squad, Tao's impressive result in northern France will go some way to healing the disappointment he must have felt after crashing out while in a good position in last years edition of this classic race.
In my experience 3rd place feels better than 2nd which is often so near but so far - from winning.  

Well done Mr T great show - clearly you are right in there at world level!
