Heading to see the Paris-Roubaix this yeah. Has anyone been to see it, and of those who have, where is the best place to witness this great race from?

I am thinking of the veledrome in Roubaix but dont know if there is a better spot

If you like to be with one eyed drunk Belgians the section of pave known as Carrefour de l'Arbre / Pavé de Luchin sector has often proved decisive. It is 15 kms from the finish. Its 2.1 km are rated at the hardest level of difficulty, five stars. But for mine I would study the course and be at a place where you watch the race go by then retire to a warm bar and see out the race with some liquid refreshments. :wink:
