Brit Geraint Thomas returned to the cobbled sectors of Paris-Roubaix yesterday for the first time since he won the junior race in 2004. He previewed the course with Sky team-mate Juan Antonio Flecha, who will lead the team in Sunday's professional race.

"It was quite weird, it felt like it was just yesterday that I was there racing as a junior," 23 year-old Thomas told Cycling Weekly. "It is a nice velodrome, the banking is pretty steep and it provides a great atmosphere to finish the race. I am looking forward to it and I hope I get in there."
