The L. A. ROUBAIX TROFEE v2 pays tribute to Europe’s Spring Classics, monumental rides such as Paris-Roubaix (the Hell of the North!) by offering riders a hard, fun day of cycling on everything Los Angeles has to offer, and all within sight of Downtown. No cobblestones, but the L. A.s’ equivalent: rugged, barely paved roads, dirt roads, multi-use trails while showcasing the closest mountains to the City!
Lunch is on the menu awaiting finishers at the Pub at Golden Road. Lunch is included with each paid entry!
