Boone-Roubaix V, The Hell of the High Country

Now the final race in the Trois Roubaix series with Tom Dula's Revenge March 9 and Love Valley Roubaix March 23.

Test yourself on a 50 mile route featuring 10 miles of unpaved roads and a series of challenging climbs including the infamous Koppenberg of the High Country, Big Flatts Church Road.

Boone-Roubaix consists of a 50-mile route along the New River and through the Blue Ridge Mountains. On the course, cyclists have to cover 10 miles of unpaved roads and surmount a series of challenging climbs.

The most notorious section, dubbed "the Koppenberg of the High Country" after the infamous hill in the Tour of Flanders, consists of a pair of quarter-mile climbs with 20-percent grades on a mile stretch of dirt road.

The North Carolina High Country is a magnet for cyclists of all stripes thanks to its unmatched beauty, quiet country roads and extensive trails, event organizers said. With the addition of the Gran Fondo to the extremely popular race, Boone-Roubaix will offer recreational riders a chance to enjoy incredible roads and warm Southern hospitality.

Gran Fondo participants will benefit from well-stocked rest stops and full support along the route from the Performance Bike Spin Doctors, Hammer Nutrition, and Perform Pain Relief, as well as the free post-race party hosted by Blowing Rock Ale.
