2010 Paris-Roubaix: In the aftermath of L’Enfer du Nord, emotionally-charged Swiss and Roubaix Champion Spartacus embraced Pippo clad in his reverse-background Tricolore; Spartacus earned his second Pavé while Pippo was consoled with the one-time-only Commemorative Ballerini Pavé for highest-placed Italian finisher. Now, imagine if this Black Tricolore had transformed its wearer a la The Black Swan so that Pippo would be the most stealth Cobbles contenders; oh, to never again be accused of wheelsucking by Tommeke and PhilGil would be the best reward!
