RULES & INSTRUCTIONS

 
 

Welcome to the Barry-Roubaix,
please read the following information to make your race day safe and enjoyable.

 

RULES:  BARRY-ROUBAIX

  • Don’t be a dick! Everyone’s looking to enjoy the day, don’t be “that person”

  • This race course is open to traffic, and may include the occasional horse back rider. Obey all traffic laws, instructions from Sheriff Marshals and volunteer corner marshals at intersections. Only roll through if you are directed to do so. You may be asked to stop for your own safety.

  • I repeat, the course will NOT be closed to traffic and cycling rules of the road apply, i.e. stop at all stop signs, yield to cars, no more than 2 riders abreast and do not cross yellow center line. Violations could be penalized by disqualification

  • Number plates must be handlebar mounted. To reduce scoring errors and issue; DO NOT CUT, FOLD, WRAP OR BEND YOUR PLATE!!!!! Number plates will have a disposable timing chip attached to the back. Also only place your plate on the bars; Not on your back, hydration pack, pocket, etc.

  • 62 Mile cut-off time:
    For your safety no individual can go beyond the second aid station (at mile 42 from the start) after 1:30 p.m. (12.3 mph avg). Also be aware that corner marshals and sheriffs will not stay at their post until the very last rider. Once the “majority” of racers has passed they will leave, at this point you can still follow the course markings but no one will be stopping traffic for you. Follow the rules of the road.

  • If you didn’t complete your registered race distance, do not cross the finish line and inform the timing team for results accuracy

  • Any physical altercations will result in disqualification

  • Cheaters aren’t welcome. If you’ve been found guilty of cheating/doping by USAC or other races, we have the right to deny you from racing and will remove you from results listings if caught in a year you raced BRX

  • ANSI approved helmets are mandatory

  • No E-bikes, recumbents, elliptical bikes, three wheeled bikes, or trailers are allowed at the event.

  • No ear buds / music allowed

  • No tri-bars or aero bars allowed (EXCEPTION: They ARE allowed for the 100-mile Psycho Killer)

  • Motor pacing is not allowed

  • If you can not ride a steep hill or loose sand, stay to the far right so others can pass by while riding

  • Littering of any kind is not allowed and will be grounds for disqualification

  • Starting in the wrong wave will result in disqualification! Do NOT line up in the wave in front of yours in an attempt to get a front row spot in your registered wave. We will remove your number plate if you’re caught doing this!

  • Crew, family and friends; to reduce vehicle traffic on the course please keep cars completely off race route roads. Especially stay off Sager Rd during the race. Do not even think of driving or parking there!

  • Crews are not allowed to follow racers (via bike, car, scooter, etc) during the race

  • Hand-ups are only permitted at official aid stations! Do not feed anywhere else on the course.
