Hilly Billy Roubaix
June 25, 2011
Mylan Park
Morgantown, WV


Course:
This is going to be a mean one, Folks! This course will take you over dirt and paved "State Roads" around Monongalia County in Northern West Virginia and Western PA.  Finish times could be 6 plus hours for some riders. Road conditions may include missing bridges, car-sized potholes, gravel, mud, black top, cow paths, and maybe a piece of road kill or two, 100% of which are WV State Roads.  That's what we call good riding! Leave your expensive Flux-Capacitors and fancy wheels at home and maybe bring the cross bike. It might be the best tool for the job, but bring whatever you think is best for you.  However, if you show up with Zipps on your road bike we may laugh and point at you. This race course has just about everything a cyclist says they want when they're talking it up with their buddies.  Now let us see ya ride it! Course will have fully stocked aid stations along the way.  Sag support will be provided.

"I would not run smaller than a 30mm tyre. If you run a 28 you will be severely limited on the downhills. They needn't be knobby (for the current conditions) but you will need the volume. I don't think tubulars would be very smart either. DO NOT WEAR ROAD SHOES FOR THIS EVENT!"

Aid Stations:  Total of three, (at mile 19, 38 and 58) will be stocked with the following items.
Water
Heed
Hammer Gels
Hammer Electrolyte Pills
Cookies
Bananas
M&Ms
Pretzels
(If you require something else drop bags will be available)
