Rouge Roubaix - the deep souths most unique one day ride and race

For riders who like both road and gravel, the course of the Rouge Roubaix is one of the best out there. Rouge Roubaix is on par with the likes of California's Cervelo Belgian Waffle Ride in terms of it's unique and challenging course.

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. So get ready to dig deep, real deep!

Registration has now opened.
