Gettin' Cobbled.

Paris to Roubaix is just a gnarly race. It is called the Hell of the North for a good reason. They have to change the bike set ups and the cobbles are that rough even the motorbike escorts have to ride on motocross bikes and the team cars get their suspensions tweaked. This year there are 27 sections of pave. The peloton are so close and hit the cobbles at full speed there are always big crashes.
