Dirty South Roubaix
March 7 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
The locals have been doing long painful adventure rides for several years. We call them the “Dirty South” rides. These rides are a mix of pavement, gravel, dirt, mud and sometimes water. We continue to look for the most hills, most gravel and most painful route we can put together each year. Until last year, all of these rides have just been large group rides. Some people want to hit it hard, some want to ride a casual pace and chat, and some just want to see if they can finish. Many people had been asking for a race…. So, last year we held the first Dirty South Roubaix. Everyone seemed to have a blast, so we are back for round two. Most people think Illinois is flat. Well, not so much down here in the Southern tip. There will be some flat sections of the course, but it will be littered with gravel and potholes. The main course will be 100K + and will not disappoint. Last years route seemed well loved, so much of the route will be unchanged. Since the Larue Pine Hills and Trail of Tears State Park seemed to be the racers favorite sections, we plan to include them again. There are a few route changes that may find themselves into the course this year.
