Armstrong on Arenberg: 'There will be carnage'

Lance Armstrong Tour de France 2010 cobbles training

Lance Armstrong and a handful of the other 2010 Tour de France favourites previewed yesterday one of the most challenging stages of this year's race - the cobbled run to Arenberg, stage three.

The stage ends three days of stressful racing, all before the race even reaches the high mountains. After Saturday's prologue in Rotterdam, the riders will face a windy run to Brussels, a mid-mountain stage to Spa and a cobbled stage to Arenberg, similar to 'The Hell of the North', Paris-Roubaix.
