With the 2019 Paris-Roubaix inching another day closer, teams took advantage of more clear, dry weather on Friday to reconnoitre some of the cobbled sectors they'll face on Sunday.
And UAE team Emirates' Alexander Kristoff and newcomer Jasper Philipsen were out previewing the cobbles, with Kristoff having been showing some good form of late. He'll be looking to score a first Roubaix win on Sunday, which would be his third Monument, having won Milan-San Remo and the Tour of Flanders in 2014 and 2015, respectively.
Other riders out on Friday looking over some of the cobbled sectors included Astana's Magnus Cort and the Deceuninck-QuickStep armada of Zdenek Stybar, Philippe Gilbert, Yves Lampaert and Kasper Asgreen. André Greipel and his Arkea-Samsic team were also spotted, as were Arnaud Démare and his Groupama-FDJ teammates.
