The CourseThe fourth event in the Oregon Cup series will be the Eugene Roubaix.
The 13-mile course features varied terrain and one straight stretch of gravel road. The Eugene Roubaix is relatively flat with approximately 117 meters of rolling hills and one 'berg' (Oak Hill Road). The real trademark is the 1.5 mile gravel section on each lap. The Start/Finish is on Cantrell road approximately 200m after the end of gravel section.
The entire course is suitable for a standard road bike setup, but choose your tires wisely; save the super lightweight tires for another day. Support will be neutral, but we will not provide wheels. 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.
