Kick off  your 2018 cycling season on April 21st 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 four race lengths to challenge riders of all abilities.
The 22-mile  “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.
The 100-mile “Psycho-Killer” you will enjoy over 6800 feet of elevation!

Registration will open December 1st 2017  at 8 AM and closes April 18, 2018 at Noon (or when the racer cap is met)


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