As Sunday's Paris-Roubaix fast approaches, teams have been spending time riding key sectors of cobbles and making sure their bikes are dialled in for the unique rigors of the 258km route's punishing pave.

Defending champion Fabian Cancellara (Leopard Trek), three-time winner Tom Boonen (Quick Step) and 2009 runner-up Filippo Pozzato (Katusha) were joined by their teammates in scouting out what is shaping up to be a dry and dusty edition of the "Hell of the North".
