Long Route:


27 cobbled sectors between Busigny and the velodrome in Roubaix. The day starts early with a 5am bus transfer. From Busigny, there are some warm up cobble sections to get you ready for the big challenges. You hit three 5* sectors in all and this route proves a formidable challenge.

Medium Route:


18 cobbled sections starting and ending in Roubaix with a baptism of fire at Arenberg. The start is at the velodrome and the first half of the ride is getting you out to the race route. Your introduction to the cobbles is the 5* Arenberg and hereafter it gets considerably easier.

Short Route:


7 cobbles including the 5* Carrefour de l'Arbre on this route out and back from Roubaix. The first 30km is on smooth roads getting you onto the Roubaix route. After a feed station you hit the first of 10 sectors. For a short ride, it should definitely not be underestimated.
