2017 Rouge Roubaix Classic Race and Gran Fondo

Rouge Roubaix XX

March 10 - March 11 2018
St. Francisville, Louisiana, USA

A classic 106 mile road race that covers the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Feliciana’s. The race starts in St. Francisville, LA and travels north and west through the back roads of West Feliciana Parish and Wilkinson County, Mississippi.

You will encounter a constantly rolling terrain, and a few climbs that will test all racers. The road surfaces will vary greatly. You will encounter chip and seal, sandy gravel, smooth as glass asphalt, and some roads that are just plain bad. This race is a classic test of man and his machine vs. the terrain and elements.

It would be unfair to attempt to predict what type of weather to expect for the Rouge Roubaix. You should come prepared to battle 80 degree heat and Louisiana humidity. You should also come prepared to expect temperatures so low that your water bottles will freeze. And then again, if the cycling Gods are with us, we will get one of those perfect spring like days where it will be tough to break a sweat.

The Saturday Gran Fondo is a great opportunity for first timers or non-racers to tackle the race course with no time limits and fully supported stops and mechanical support.

The Sunday Road Race is an opportunity for licensed USAC racers to battle for cash prizes, custom trophies, and most importantly, Rouge Roubaix glory.
