2010 Barry Roubaix Race Recap
Michigan’s 2010 cycling race season is fully underway now that the Killer Gravel Road Race – The Second Annual Barry-Roubaix is in the books!
Racers were treated to sunny skies but the morning lows were in the 20’s and by race start the temps only crept to 34 degrees with a 15 mph biting wind out of the southeast. We didn’t see 50 degrees until 3:00 pm.
The new start venue at Yankee Spring/Gun Lake Unit was a great place to stage a race and has room for growth. Speaking of growth, we had an increase in attendance by over 250%. Nearly 700 racers toed the start line! Derek Graham captured the mens Elite race and Mackenzie Woodring lead a blistering pace in the womens Elite class to defend her 2009 title.
We will continue to modify and improve the event each year. The overwhelming growth and enthusiasm for this race continues to amaze us.
Thanks for attending and see you in 2010!
