MEAD ROUBAIX, CHAOS ON TWO WHEELS, EXCEPT FOR THE TOUGHEST MEN AND WOMEN....

It was all fun and games at the 2011 Mead Roubaix road race today in Mead, Colorado, until the racing started. Having pre-rode the course the day before, I tried to explain what lay in front of these racers today, but it was really not explainable nor could you ever imagine unless you were out there on course today, in that wind, and that dirt, and that sand. It was maybe the toughest road race Colorado locals will see this season. The Boulder edition of this race was mild compared to what those who lined up would face today in Mead, and completing just one lap was an accomplishment, much less four, like Haga did in the men's open field today. If you think you are tough, line it up in this one next season, I dare you...
And this would be the start of a very tough journey for every racer that lined it up today, bar none. For some amazing photos from today's action visit 303 Cycling.

  1. I know a lot of people that will be skipping it next year.
    Sand pits where stupid, not tough.
