Organizers create a special cobblestone prize in memory of the former winner… Check out the story by Stephen Farrand over at Cycling News.

Franco Ballerini will be remembered with a special prize at this year’s Paris-Roubaix. Race organisers ASO have decided that a cobble stone trophy will be awarded to the first Italian rider at the finish in the Roubaix velodrome, as a way of remembering Ballerini after his death in a car rally accident in February.
