The organisers of Paris-Roubaix, Amaury Sport Organisation, has announced the addition of a new section of pave to the 2007 edition of the race. The new section, the Chemin du Moulin, is situated between the towns of Orchies and Beuvry-la-forêt, and is made up of a 800 metre stretch of cobbles and a 600 metre segment of non tarmac road.

The cobbles, which are in need of repair, will be restored by a group of 12 young people recruited by the Orchies - Beuvry-la-Forêt district council. The Orchies - Beuvry-la-Forêt section, 1400 metres in total length, will be traversed at the 200 km mark of the 259 kilometre long race.
