I have tested the following two tracks:

1) a - b - c* - e - g - d - f* - I(i uppercase) - h - j - l* (L lowercase) - o - t - q - k - m* - s - p - n - r - u

2) a - b - e - g - c - d* - f - I (i uppercase) - h - j* - l* (L lowercase) - o - p - t - m - q* - K* - s - n - r - u

where * indicates the tiles witj cobblestones. As per previous posts, on cobblestones the road shrinks (only one cyclist per square), no slipstreaming, but no speed limit.
Personally I believe that the best solution is the second, with fewer squares on cobblestones (18 vs 24), so that slipstreaming does not lose too much importance.

What do tou think?

I don't like most of the variants ideas but this one looks like a good one!

One lane wide, no speed limit and no slipstreaming is exactly how I have played cobblestones. Typically I do 2-3 sections per stage, at 6-8 length each.

Happy racing

These ideas are yours indeed, Asger!
And since they are simple, I like them!

I was thinking a solution for Ronde Van Vlaanderen (Tour of Flandres): to use tiles with bends in ascent, for the short "muur" (the walls) with the same rules for cobblestones, one lane widw, no slipstreaming but speed limit to 5 (like ascents).
But I have play this solution too few times...

It is the same idea I'm toying with for bends on mountain roads

I hope to have some playtest files for you all during January!

Can 2) really be build without tracks crossing each other?

1) a - b - c* - e - g - d - f* - I(i uppercase) - h - j - l* (L lowercase) - o - t - q - k - m* - s - p - n - r - u

I've marked the cobblestone tiles with a black chit.

SORRY!!! blush

You're right René: I've made a mistake!

The correct series of tiles for the second track is:

2) a - b - e - g - c - d* - f - I (i uppercase) - h - j* - l* (L lowercase) - o - t - m - q* - K* - s - p - n - r - u

The error is in the position of the "p" tile!

Think I did a P instead of p.

Here are two races I've made with cobblestones.

I don't have lot of time to test it.
Don't hesitate to give your feelings.

L'Enfer du Nord



De Ronde

Cool but that table clouth does make it hard to see the stage.

Do you have the setup for these two stages, so we can incorporate them in the stage file?
