Like the classic it’s named after, Barry-Roubaix will test riders against (80%) rolling gravel roads, pavement, one mile of rough two track, rocks, sand, mud, and possibly snow and ice as you traverse the scenic roads of Barry County.

We offer three race lengths to challenge riders of all abilities.
The 22-mile CU Link “Chiller” has approx. 1200 feet of elevation,
The 36-mile Smith Optics “Thriller” climbs approx. 2200 feet
The 62-mile SRAM “Killer” you can expect approx. 3800 feet of elevation.

Registration will open December 1st 2016  at 8 AM and closes March 15, 2017 at NOON EST. or sooner if the 3,500 racer cap is met. Registration for transfers, category changes, upgrades and adding to a competing teams roster closes 3/15 at 11:45 PM.


The Barry-Roubaix is a participating race in the Michigan Gravel Race Series.  Check out their website for all the details.
