JOIN US MARCH 28, 2015

Kick off  your 2015 cycling season with The Founders Barry-Roubaix Killer Gravel Road Race, the largest gravel road race in the world!

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 24-mile Cushe “Chiller” has approx. 1200 feet of elevation,
The 36-mile Smith Optics “Thriller” climbs approx. 2200 feet
The 62-mile Foundry Cycles “Killer” you can expect approx. 3800 feet of elevation.

Registration is open! It closes March 18, 11:45pm or sooner if the 3,500 racer cap is met.

Have Fun. Do Good.

The Founders Barry-Roubaix is proud to announce our partnership with the Alzheimer’s Association.  Like many of you, we have a personal connection to this terrible disease and we are donating a portion of our proceeds to the Have Fun Do Good End Alzheimer’s campaign. Your participation in our event will help them continue their studies and research for a cure.



We thank all of our sponsors for partnering with us to host the largest gravel road race in the world ! We couldn’t host this race and party without your involvement!! Please continue to support these great businesses for their generous contributions to our cycling community. See all our sponsors >
