Jeremy’s Roubaix 2019

Registration is still open for Jeremy’s Roubaix, Hell North of the Fraser, road race coming up this Saturday, April 20, 2019.

Jeremy’s Roubaix is a staple on the BC road cycling scene. Based in the City of Pitt Meadows, it started out 16 years ago as Harris Roubaix, and is now named Jeremy’s Roubaix after BC cycling legend Jeremy Storie. The race is based on the spring classic bike race Paris Roubaix, substituting cobblestone roads for gravel dyke paths.

Jeremy Storie was a fixture in BC and Canadian road and track cycling. He mentored and coached many of our county’s top cyclists including Maggie Coles-Lyster, Steph Roorda, Jasmine Glaesser, Gillian Carleton and Laura Brown. His work in cycling also included a strong dedication to developing youth cycling and to challenge the system for gender equity. Jeremy died suddenly in February 2013.

Proceeds from this race will again go to help one of Jeremy’s former athletes, 20-year old, Maggie Coles-Lyster in her pursuit of competing at international track omnium events with the goal of Tokyo 2020.

This year’s race will again include a separate Master Men’s category, special pricing for all Junior and Youth riders, plus as much wind and rain Mother Nature can dish up!

We would like to express our thanks to our event partners: Local Ride Racing, Power2Max, TaG Cycling Race Team, Vision/FSA, Naked Bikes, Born Superior Sports Care, the City of Pitt Meadows and Metro Vancouver Regional Parks.

Event partners and volunteers are always welcome. For more information, contact Barry at [email protected].

Registration closes April 18 at 11:59 pm. To register and for event information, go to www.localride.ca.
