2014 Tour de France: The cobbles – potential carnage?

Nine sections of cobbles (pavé) between Ypres and Arenberg: 155.5 kilometres

Today's stage, although short, will be tough because of the sections of cobbles normally used for the famous Paris-Roubaix classic. Furthermore the forecast is for rain. Watch this good preview to see what the riders will face.

Fabian Cancellara must be a good bet for the stage win, while the overall contenders will be praying to get through safely without losing too much time on their rivals.
