Rode a lap on the Roubaix Course today.
Conditions are very similar to recent Roubaix Courses. Smooth and dry with lots of potholes. They are in the usual spots. Ride with caution, especially on the descents. No gravel, just a few stray rocks. Be careful on corners and watch for potholes. Road bikes should be great. I'd recommend durable wheels and tires (23/25 would be fine), but ride what you're comfortable with.
