    Paris-Roubaix 2019: its race route, its cobble stones sections and other details of the Hell of the NorthThe queen of the classics, Paris-Roubaix 2019, will take this Sunday. For the 117th edition of the race, the organisor chose to slightly modify last year's race route: the start is a bit different, but this time also the 6 first cobble stones sections, between Troisvilles and Verchain-Maugré. The number of sections however remain the same (29) and there will still be a total distance of 54.5 kilometers of cobbles. The total distance of the race also remains the same, 257 kilometers.

    In the Hell of the North a small problem can however come disturb a rider's race, while others can be lucky. Nothing's thus defined beforehand and it'll be this Sunday on the cobbles that we'll see who manges to win the race ... which doesn't have a big favourite this year!

    The 29 cobble stones sections of Paris-Roubaix 2019

    With a slightly modified race route compared to 2018, the cobble stones sections have also been modified, well, that is, in the first part of the race, with the sections 29 to 24. The difficulty notes have been awarded to these sections after today's visit by Christian Prudhomme and Thierry Gouvenou and these notes have been announced in a press releases which contains the same notes for almost all of the sections which were part of the race before, except for the Troisvilles section of which only the first 900 meters will be part of the race this year. Not really surprising that the other notes are identical when you know that the criteria which are taken into account for the attribution of these notes are the length (which doesn't change, except for the Trouée d'Arenberg which has been remeasured by ASO and turns out to be 100 meters less long than what they thought so far, at 2300 meters), the irregularity of the coubles (which doesn't change, or at least not much), the general state of the portion (which doesn't change much, especially if the weather is similar; there again there's the exception of the Trouée d'Arenberg where rehabilitation works have taken place: cleaning the cobbles with high pression water and filling the gaps with mortar, the first 500 meters slightly going down are again usable and the 400 following meters will be handled the the same way after the race ... a shared jackpot will be set up to collect money for the remaining parts) and of its place in the race (which hardly ever changes).

    The Paris-Roubaix 2019 race route on Open Street Maps

    The start in Compiègne on the Place du Général de Gaulle will be at 11AM.

    After the start, the riders will follow in Compiègne the Rue du Dahomey, the Place Saint-Jacques, the Rue Magenta, the Rue Jean Legendre, the Place de l'Hôtel de Ville, the Rue Solférino, the Cours Guynemer, the Rue de Soissons, and then the Avenue de l'Armistice, the N31, the D66, before they get on the D130 where the real start will take place, as usual. The riders will follow the D130 before they get to Saint-Léger-aux-Bois and Pont-l'Evêque from where they'll go on to Noyon and then, via Ham and Saint-Quentin, get on the first cobble stones section, the usual section from Troisville to Inchy, of which they'll this time thus only ride the first 900 meters. The riders will then discover the new combination of the first cobble stones sections, which includes the first feeding zone which is still in the same are but not exactly at the same location anymore, in Solesmes. What follows the section from Vertain to Saint-Martin-sur-Ecaillon is identical to the usual race route.

    In total the riders will thus visit 54.5 kilometers of cobble stones and they'll find a second feeding zone in Beuvry-la-Forêt. The finish will, as usual be, on the Vélodrome of Roubaix after a full lap on the track.
