With two dozen wins already in the bag this season, Quick-Step Floors doesn't seem to need more luck. But just in case, they brought in three-time Paris-Roubaix winner Johan Museeuw to add some magic to their pre-race reconnaissance ride on Friday.

The Belgian legend was hosting a group of enthusiasts as part of Quick-Step's Bike Experience, but stepped away to show the current professionals that he still knows his way around the pavé.

Niki Terpstra, Zdenek Stybar, Philippe Gilbert, Yves Lampaert, Iljo Keisse, Florian Senechal, and Tim Declercq tackled several of the key secteurs of pavé, finding more favourable conditions than teams who rode on Thursday.

The sun is beginning to dry out much of the previously waterlogged cobble secteurs, although there are still some puddles on the verges.

The most mud-covered section in Haveluy was tidied up by Les Amis de Paris-Roubaix, the community group that maintains the historic cobbled roads.
