Paris-Roubaix uses 40 goats to clear Trouée d'Arenberg cobbles

The work required for the Paris-Roubaix cobblestones to be perfectly placed before the race is well known (this year on April 9th). Many are the volunteers who every year who dedicate themselves to place the cobblestones in the areas without them so that the cyclists can give one of the greatest spectacles of each season, and this year goats were brought in to help.

What is less well known is that another type of "operators" has to get into action in the Arenberg forest to make it all very clean. Specifically, 40 goats that the organization places all over the 2300-meter stretch to eat all the weeds between the cobblestones that would make it impossible for the riders to ride.
