Pave de la Croix Blanche

Pave de la Croix Blanche is a wild cobbled road

Pavé de la Croix Blanche is an iconic cobbled section located in the Nord department of Hauts-de-France region, in France.

Tucked away on the northern part of the country, this stretch of archaic cobbled road has been used in the Paris-Roubaix and Tour de France bicycle races. It’s rated as five stars, the hardest level of difficulty. With a length of only 3,000m, the Pavé de la Croix Blanche section climbs up from 53m at the start to 63m at the end. 

Located to the east of Mons-en-Pévèle, this section is usually slippery and covered by puddles of rainwater. This cobblestone section has good condition for the first 1,100m, then deteriorating, followed by 1,100m on which mud runs down from fields.
