Local Ride Racing's BC spring classic bike race, Jeremy's Roubaix, is set to hit the rural road and gravel dykes of Pitt Meadows on April 12th. The name for this annual event has been changed to honour a Canadian cycling legend, Jeremy Storie, who tragically took his life back in 2013.
This year's event will be the first race of Cycling BC's Premier Road Series, with winners in their respective categories receiving leader jersey's and bragging rights heading into the next race in the series, Race The Ridge on May 30th.
New for this year will be the inclusion of full youth categories in the BC Premier Road Series. Jeremy's Roubaix will also offer up-grade points for riders looking to move up in categories.
Support for Jeremy's Roubaix has been outstanding. Fort Langley Cyclery has stepped-up to offer prizing and to provide technical support at the wheel pits. "I am very pleased to have Fort Langley Cyclery on board for this year's race. Their bike shop has a very strong road, cyclocross and track presence in the area, and it was also one of Jeremy's favorite local bike shops to visit," commented race organizer, Barry Lyster.
Local Ride Racing would like to thank all of its sponsors, Colnago Canada, CODE sports, Power2Max, Catlike Helmets, Fort Cyclery and Cycles Lambert.
Registration closes April 8th, at 6 pm. There is no day-of registration.
