Race day communication

Welcome to The Founders Barry-Roubaix Killer Gravel Road Race week and the official start of the 2014 race season.  We have created one document with everything you need to know for race day, including; packet pick up, race waves & times, event area map, awards celebration and after-party schedule………view the info under files and maps tab
1. Race course alternate route: Due to the deep snow conditions and lack of emergency access to Shaw rd. and Both Sager roads, they have been removed from the race.  The alternate routes on the race course map under maps tab (highlighted in green) will be used and the course will be marked reflecting this change. There’s also one erosion area on Head rd near Little Pine Lake
2. Team Scoring Competition Update: We currently have a total of 73 teams competing in the team competitions.  To view the latest list of teams by race and Team tents designated set up areas ( first come first serve) go to the team competition tab
3. Race waves and times:  on the web site under maps and file
4.BIB #’s will be available on the website soon under maps and file We will also have listings at packet pick up
5. Miscellaneous Race info Be sure to start in your correct race wave. The back of your number plate will have your wave and start time based on your registered race and your age on 12/31/2014.

We will only stage 3 waves deep at a time so you can keep warming up
We will have 2 split timing mats on the courses and anyone deciding mid-race to drop down from their registered racing category will be DQ’d on the posted results. Under no circumstances can we adjust your category choice post race.
Make sure you plan to stick around after the race for the after-party and awards celebration. Bring some warm clothes, boots, gloves and relax next to the Hastings fire pits. The West Michigan Mountain Biking Alliance will be serving Dirty Bastard, Centennial, Pale Ale and All Day IPA. ID’s required to purchase beer.
We cant thank our 2014 sponsors enough for helping us to put on the event. Stop by all our sponsor tents in the after-party area to see what they have to offer for 2014.  A number of our sponsors will have register to win items at their tents. Winning names will be drawn during the awards ceremony.  Here’s a preview: >Delta Subaru tent: register to win a 1Up USA bike rack >Velocity USA tent: register to win Velocity Aileron wheelset >616 / Munzie Cycles: register to win a Munzie Fat bike frame >Freewheeler Bike Shop awards stage swag toss
