The Boulder Roubaix mixed-terrain race was first held in 1990, long before the current gravel boom. Registration is now open for the 2019 race held on April 6. Learn more about the race and how to register in this release.
BOULDER, CO—About 1,000 athletes from 15 states and Front Range Weekend Warriors will converge in Boulder on Saturday, April 6 for Colorado’s oldest and most popular one-day bike race, the Boulder Roubaix.
The Boulder Roubaix Road Race features hilly, gravel roads and fast, smooth pavement on an 18.7-mile circuit. Boulder Roubaix is our local tribute to the European classic Paris-Roubaix, which is held the week before and was first held in 1896.
The first Boulder Roubaix took place in 1990 and has since become one of the most well-attended amateur road races in the United States. The Gran Fondo Guide recently recognized the Boulder Roubaix as one of the “All-Time Best Spring Classic Races in North America,” and our race is listed on USA Cycling’s 2019 National Calendar.
Boulder Roubaix is held every other year and offers 32 race categories ranging from 9/10-year-old Juniors to pro/elite level racers to national and international teams. Veteran pros and amateurs alike revere Boulder Roubaix and know that a win can elevate an up-and-coming racer to get noticed by pro teams.
Some of the biggest names in U.S. cycling have won here, including Roy Knickman, Scott Moninger, Chris Baldwin, Olympian Mara Abbott and 15-time cyclocross national champion Katie Compton.
The 2019 course is a challenging 18.7-mile circuit with 60 percent dirt roads and the rest paved. The pro men will complete four laps of almost 80 miles and the pro women will do three laps of about 56 miles. Winners will clock times less than three and a half hours. Beginners and first-timers races start at 8:30 am with other categories throughout the day.
