Paris-Roubaix 2014: training gallery

Fabian Cancellara, Sep Vanmarcke and co prepare for the Hell of the North

To win Paris-Roubaix, according to 2004 victor Magnus Backstedt, you need to know every section of the route – pavé or tarmac – inside out.

And with the prestigious race just two days away, it is little surprise to see pro cycling’s elite out on a recce of the course.

Defending champion and pre-race favourite Fabian Cancellara was among the riders who wasted little time in familiarising himself with the cobbles post-Scheldeprjs.

And photographer Stefano Sirotti was on hand to snap the riders out on some of the race’s most iconic sections of pavé.

Take a look at the full-width gallery below.
