Midtown Cycles presents the Eugene Roubaix

The Eugene Roubaix is brought to you by the Midtown Direct Cycling team. The now famous 13 mile course features varied terrain, and one straight stretch of gravel road to test your mettle. The Eugene Roubaix has approximately 117 meters of rolling hills, one 'berg' (Oak Hill Road), and a gravel section per lap. The Start/Finish is on Cantrell road approximately 200m after end of gravel section. This course is tough but fun and the perfect warm-up for the Table Rock Road Race. Stop by Eugene to open up the legs and continue on to Table Rock for a full weekend of fun. This is an official OBRA event; helmets and OBRA license are required.

The entire course is suitable for a standard road bike setup, but choose your tires wisely and leave the super lightweight tires and climbing wheels for another day. Support will be neutral, but wheels will not be provided. The majority of racers bring a spare set of wheels for the neutral wheel pit. You should bring wheels too and not assume someone else will.

Race Entry is $21 for registrations postmarked April 12th or earlier. An additional $5 fee for registrations postmarked after April 12th. Send checks payable to "David Kuhns' Events" at 721 Centennial Blvd, Springfield, OR 97477. Day of registration and sign-in opens at 8:30 am, closes 20 min. prior to each start. Annual and one-day OBRA licenses will be available, but you are encouraged to purchase a license from OBRA in advance. Early registrants who fail to sign in will not start and forfeit their entry fee.
