‘I’ve by no means seen the cobbles as dangerous as this’ – Inside one group’s Paris-Roubaix recon

“Can I’ve squash in mine?” asks Maddie Leech, holding out her bidon and a bottle of supermarket-brand orange cordial. The time is 10am sharp, and in a packed automotive park by the put up workplace within the French city of Haveluy, Lifeplus-Wahoo are preparing for a day throughout the cobbles.

Three bikes are lined up alongside a brick wall. One for sprinter Eluned King, one for brand spanking new signing Kristýna Burlová, and one for Leech, who’s wrapping her fingers in blue tape. The 20-year-old can spin tales of the brutality of Paris-Roubaix. When she made her debut final 12 months, she did not attain the top of the primary stretch of cobbles.
