Steamboat Roubaix

Register for the Steamboat Roubaix on May 15, 2022

Paying homage to the mother of all rough road races, Steamboat Roubaix will challenge all of your skills as a bike racer – speed, handling, power, tactics, team strategy, and grit.  Steamboat Roubaix – Hell of the High Rockies brings a fun and challenging course to pro-am racers looking to test their racing skills in a good ol’ fashioned peloton.

And if you’re not interested in USA Cycling race category competition, we have got you covered with a Gran Fondo category for cruising the course at your own speed while enjoying the on-course support.

The Race

Steamboat Roubaix Hell of the High Rockies will kick off from Steamboat Springs in the early hours of Sunday with staggered start waves for 21 categories split by gender and ability level, riding a 36, 53, and 70 mile routes. USA Cycling category divisions allow participants to start and race alongside riders of the same gender and ability level in a good ol’ fashioned peloton, with group options for everyone including Juniors, Pro Men & Women, and Masters (40+) groups.

Steamboat Roubaix is perfect for riders who want an exciting race experience set against stunning and leg crushing terrain using fair racing rules and ability groupings” says Race Director Corey Piscopo, who has been behind the Steamboat Springs Stage Race for the past 11 years along with running local race team Steamboat Velo. “Steamboat Roubaix isn’t ‘ultra’ or a mass start Gran Fondo, instead it follows a traditional and sanctioned format of Pro-am road racing, which is a blast to participate in.”

53-mile, with 3,470 feet of climbing — course map

70-mile, with 4,750 feet of climbing — course map

The course terrain, potential for gnarly spring weather, and opportunity for team tactics, are what make Steamboat Roubaix unique. Paying homage to Paris-Roubaix, riders will see between 3 and 5 dirt ‘sectors’ depending on their course length, and conditions could range from smooth and fast to wet slop. Roubaix will surely test all of the skills that make a good bike racer – speed, handling, power, tactics, teamwork, equipment, and grit. Riders will have to monitor updates on the dirt conditions in the weeks ahead of race day and make the call on which equipment to run ensuring speed, traction, and sufficient durability.
