Just wanted to chime in with my personal experiences regarding Flanders/Roubaix and cobblestones. Last spring i spent 14 days riding the famed cobbled roads of Flanders alon with the last 100 km of the Paris-Roubaix on Continental GP 4000s. On the day of my P-R adventure it rained for the entire time and we spent plenty on time getting lost and riding old farms tracks during our 14 day stay. In the end i didn't have one single puncture and never felt that the tyres didnæt have sufficint grip.

"Stay cool and try to survive" A. Klier to the other members of the Garmin classics squad the night before P-R.
