Oregon Epic Series

Gorge Roubaix

April 01 2017
The Dalles, Oregon, USA

The Gorge Roubaix has expanded for 2017 into the Oregon Epic Grinder Series showcasing the most amazing roads in the state of Oregon. The Oregon Epic will take riders on roads through the Columbia Gorge, Bend, and Mt. Hood regions. Courses will be a mix of gravel and pavement and maximize scenery and challenge. Each event will include a huge post race party with great food and beer. Come challenge yourself against these epic courses or challenge yourself against your fellow riders. Either way experience what Oregon Epic is all about. 

No racing license no problem. This is a mass start event that is open to everyone. You choose the bike we provide the course and support to maximize your challenge and fun. We will have great mechanics on course to keep you rolling and well stocked aid stations to keep you fueled. We are offering timing to everyone on this ride with prizes for the top men and women finishers.

We have two courses for you to choose from. The Big Grinder is for anyone looking for the ultimate challenge. This course is the exact same one that the Pro/Elite men's field will tackle earlier in the day. Ride fast and compare your finishing time with the pros or take your time and enjoy the food, scenery, and amazing roads. The choice is yours. Those of you that did not have a stellar winter training season we have the Short Grinder which is 50 miles that still provides lots of challenge with a little less suffering.

Everyone who registers for the Gravel Grinder receives a ton of cool stuff. So sign up and ride. Then enjoy the post race party and festivities at Clock Tower Ales afterwards.
