Oregon Epic Grinder Series: Gorge Roubaix

April 8, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

$55 - $75

 The Gorge Gravel Grinder is where it all started. Located in The Dalles, Oregon this eastern Oregon location is the best location in the Northwest for Spring riding. With moderate marine air flowing off the coast coupled with being located in the rain shadow of the Cascade Mountain Range it is your best bet for sun and warm temps in the spring. Surrounding The Dalles are hundreds of miles of paved and gravel farm roads with little to no motor traffic on them. The course offers great views of the Gorge and surrounding Cascade Mountain peaks as well as an assortment of old school buildings, barns and houses from the late 1800’s. Rolling wheat fields dominate the landscape in all directions blanketing hills in sea of green. Expect average temps to be in the mid 40’s by race start and up into the mid 60’s by the peak of the day. Gravel sections are well packed, smooth and fast. Spring rains provide good moisture keeping the dust down. No portion of the courses exceeds double digits for climbing or descending. Just a lot of fast rolling hills.
