2015 Rouge Roubaix Classic Race and Gran Fondo Results

Back in 1999, a rider named Jon Anderson got the idea to start a group ride in his old stomping grounds around St. Francisville, Louisiana, West Feliciana Parish and Wilkinson County, Mississippi. Jon had been riding these roads since the early 80’s, as a form of escapism and reflection.

It wasn’t until the early 2000’s that the Rouge Roubaix shifted from being a group ride to a sanctioned event. Racers from all over the Southeast came out for promises of punchy, steep climbs, lots of gravel, scenic roads and yes, pain. It boasts 100 ish miles, with 30-40 miles of undulating gravel and dirt roads. 

This year Amateur riders were able to take part in the Gran Fondo on the Saturday and then got to watch the Pro's on the Sunday.

Riders from all over the country gathered in the sleepy Louisiana parish of West Feliciana and set out on a journey that carries them over some of the most horrendous road surfaces known to man.

The annual Rouge Roubaix cycle race has become a cult classic for racers and adventure seekers alike due to its length (over 100mi), roads ranging from bad to non-existent and some wicked steep climbs and breathtaking scenery - if you have time to actually look around!

Luckily the rain from the previous days didn't make the course unrideable and sure added to the difficulty of the course.
