TDF Stage 9 Deep Dive | Cobbles From Hell
Stage 9 of the 2018 Tour de France will take the peloton across the cobbled roads of northern France. The 156 kilometer route will feature fifteen stretches of pavé totalling 22 kilometers. For reference, that’s roughly half the number and length of cobblestone sectors racers encounter during Paris-Roubaix. Consider it a mini-Hell of the North, wrapped into La Grande Boucle.
