Truly amazing bike handling, even if he didn't win, with skills like that he'll win more.
Yes that was the shot of the day for sure, he pretty much unicycled on his front wheel for a few feet while using his right leg as the outrigger. Amazing presence of mind.
Anybody else see Fabian go down in the velodrome after he grabbed the Swiss flag from fans? That was a bummer...

All in all, it's super cool that Hayman won, he was really putting down the power throughout, the fact that he beat the 4-Timer Boonen at the line even better for him-but man he was dazed and confused after crossing the line, he couldn't believe it, and then it finally hit him what he had just achieved. That was his fifteenth appearance at Paris-Roubaix, 38 years old, and he just broke his arm 5 weeks ago. Stud.

I watched the MSNBC feed which showed the last 100km or so, but where was the rest of Sagan's team? I don't think I saw a single other Tinkoff rider

True, although Boonen burned lots more matches, throughout the race, than Hayman, who even said, "I was lucky."

Another moto incident.

This has been the last two years for Sagan in the classics. I saw a Tinkoff bus at the start in the NBC Extra feed, so I know they were there. That's the only evidence I have though.

Wasn't Hayman in the original break?

Yes, he was, though Boonen is a marked man whereas Hayman no doubt had a bit more freedom, heck he ran out in front for a while and nobody chased him, surely they would have-and did-if it were Boonen.

Hayman had the advantage for a while that he could claim he was waiting for Durbridge, who was in the Sagan/Cancellara group iirc. He rode the perfect race really.

Someone pointed out elsewhere that Hayman was actually dropped on Carrefour de l'Arbre by all the attacks, had to survive the whole sector on his own, and then reconnected with the other 4 just after. It was an amazing performance, really.

Another good ride was Erviti. 7th at Flanders, 9th at Roubaix. I think Vanmarcke was the only other to make top 10 in both.

And a couple of snippets of their team car.

Tinkoff sure loves seeing their logo above the rainbow, tho.

This "Classique" is impossible to predict and that is why it is such a great event!
It is all "in the pavés"--may be! ;-)
For sure fun to watch.

Is there anywhere online to watch the entire race after the fact?

If you have the right cable subscription you can watch it on NBC Extra. I just watched Paris-Nice that way. Their IOS apps are terrible, but the coverage is commercial free when it isn't crashing.
