Watching Roubaix


Hello. This weekend I'm heading to Northern France, to ride the Paris-Roubaix Challenge on Saturday and then to watch the pros on Sunday. I haven't been to P-R before but I know various members of PdC have so your views on how to watch it would be appreciated, in particular:

  • How easy is it to get into the velodrome and how far in advance do you need to be there?
  • How easy is it to get near the cobbled sections by car? And how feasible is it to see multiple sections? We'll have transport so can move about.
  • How easy is it to find a bar or similar showing the race on TV so we can see what happens after it goes by?
  • Any particularly good places to watch it besides the Arenberg or the Carrefour de l'Arbre?

Thanks for your help. In return I promise a report on the challenges (possibly a video!) and lots of photos.
