Quite a massive race is the P-R, however the last 90km is the cobbles section and perhaps later in the year I might give them a go, as its not that hard to get to.

Anyone interested? Its not going to be a massive event and if I can fit a few bikes on the car and get a few people interested I can wear the driving etc.

The last 2 visits I did to the velodrome in Roubaix I didn't have a bike, I want to fix that.

If we did a bit of pay for your own acommodation and ferry crossings I think it wouldn't be that expensive - your thoughts, please?

(probably be 1-2 days away, staying in Lille which isn't far from Roubaix).

p.s. Ferries crossing Dover - Dunkirk are pretty cheap if you get the timing right - sort of about 50 quid each way for 4-5 passengers.

Accomodation in Lille is pretty good pricing too.

Still interested in doing this - I have been at least 1/2 proactive in the last few weeks...

At the min its a 105 longish cage ver, not sure of the model number.

I need a new der. hanger for it and perhaps a shorter stem, its not quite ready for use yet but getting there. Will looks for some larger non-cross tyres for a bit of road use as well.
