Paris-Roubaix Challenge Route

January 14, 2011

What we know so far.

The route from Saint-Quentin to the velodrome in Roubaix will be 162km with the first 147km to Carrefour de l’Arbre is timed and on closed roads. The last 15km will be on open roads and not timed.

There will be 31.6km of pavé over 18 sectors including the three-star Chemins des Prières, Mons en Pévèle and of course Carrefour de l’Arbre, both rated five stars. This is all according the event’s site. It was confirmed in late December that the five-star Tranchée d’Arenberg would be included in the pro race so I can’t see why we wouldn’t be tackling it too the day before. However, the official race site says we’ll only be riding the last 16 (not 18) of the 31 pavé sectors the pros will cover.

I certainly hope that there has been a mistake otherwise we miss Arenenberg!
