Well it's from CN:

Milram previewing equipment for Paris-Roubaix?

</caption> <tbody><tr> <td> </td> </tr> </tbody></table> Gent-Wevelgem isn't a particularly demanding course in terms of cobbles and most riders, including Milram sprinter Gerald Ciolek, set off from Deinze aboard standard road machines. Teammate Niki Terpstra, however, didn't just use a modified road bike with cantilever brakes and extra clearance; he used a actual 'cross frameset in what was possibly a planned get-to-know-you session for Sunday.
In usual 'cross bike fashion, Terpstra's carbon Focus Mares Team frame features extra-wide tire clearances and cantilever brakes both front and rear, along with top tube-routed cables and supplemental top mount brake levers. Gore fully sealed derailleur housing keeps out road grime and mud for more consistent shift performance while Speedplay's pared-down 'Paris-Roubaix' pedals (currently only for pros but set for consumer release this fall) are fitted to the ends of the SRAM Red BB30 crankset.
If Wednesday's soggy conditions continue through the weekend, we may just see more of this sort of thing come Sunday.


But I also heard form someone this September/October today.
