2019 was the biggest year so far for the Dirty South Roubaix and we plan to go a bit bigger this year. The 4th installment of the Dirty South Roubaix is coming up on March 7 2020. Last year we had more than 250 registered and we expect to have more this year. Alto Pass has been so welcoming, that we will be back there again. Like last year, we are planning to offer the 100k+ as the main event of the day, but will also offer a shorter course for anyone who doesn't want to tackle the full 100k. The short course will be somewhere near half of the 100k. Don't worry, it will still have hills and gravel ;) The racers from the Half Dirty sure didn't feel shortchanged after their race.
Racers from the far North, to the plains of Kansas, South in Mississippi and East in Virginia have made the trip to ride the Shawnee Hills. I think so far we have reached 12 different states. We hope to have even more states represented this year.
If you are looking for an awesome route, great challenge, killer scenery, beer, food and cool peeps to hang out with for a day, come check it out.
Thanks for your interest!
Registration opens at 8:00am CST on 10/25.
A couple of changes to note are :
Last year we capped the registration at 250 and bumped it up a little at the last minute. This year, we are going to attempt to pack Alto Pass with 350 participants. So, don't wait to register and avoid being left out of the fun, get signed up early.
The Carbondale Bike Surgeon has stepped up again this year and is offering CASH for the fastest male and fastest female finishers of the 100k event this year. The prizes will be $200 for first and $100 for second. The third fastest male and female will receive free entry into next years event. This is for the overall fastest finishers.
Some of you took advantage of the referral discount last year, so we are running it again this year. If you share the link provided to you after you register and 5 of your friends use that link to register, you get a refund of $10.
St. Nicholas Brewing Company is stepping up again to provide the post race hydration. There will be some killer post race food after you finish. We also plan to have the "Dirty South Roubaix" ale again this year.......
