Cobblestone stages of the Tour de France thrill fans, but pose a major test to the tense peloton in the opening week of the Tour de France. In 2022, stage five will finish on near the cobbles of Arenberg, one of the most famous sectors in Paris-Roubaix. Historically, GC riders suffer in stages such as this, while fans are treated to a classics-style showdown.
