Second Roubaix this year in the Mora valley has some serious mountain climbing! Unlike the spring classic there should not be any of those muddy conditions. Some familiar roads but also a lot of new ones. Spots will be a bit rougher but there is also more tarmac areas to recover on. A shortish event so you will need some warm up for this one, the steepest climb is at only 3 miles in.
There will be no course marking, so you need to be able to load and follow the route with some sort of GPS device. I advise you to make a route around your neighborhood with ridewithGPS.com and get used to your device. If there is a discrepancy of completion, tracking your ride with strava or another tracker will be needed for proof of riding the complete route. Lots of turns and roads out there to make mistakes on.
Start will be neutral till it turns to dirt. All roads are open and there is a very fast tarmac downhill on the route. Taking risks that could threaten you or the riders around you is NOT advised.
As before Adobe cobblestones for the winners, small consolation prize for 2nd and 3rd.
