Just to put the Chip Seal thread in perspective.

"Paris-Roubaix's Orchies sector"

"The cobbles of Orchies are quite different from those of Arenberg"

Yikes!  "These aren't your every day cobbles. These are Paris-Roubaix cobbles."

And in between: Lots of cobbles on the upcoming NCAA nats course in 3 weeks, same course that will be used for the 2015 worlds. Some cobbled sections are pretty rough (not PR rough, but the Richmond course ain't flat, either). Very cool urban course. This will be fun to watch.
