Race the 11th annual Hillsboro-Roubaix Spring Classic, through the brick streets and rural roads of beautiful Hillsboro, Illinois. Just 60 miles, but a world away from St. Louis, MO, this is
small town America at its best.
Racers will tour the brick streets of Hillsboro in a rolling neutral start, then race a 29 mile loop that has all you want in a Spring Classic: Flat open back roads heading into a northern headwind, rolling terrain, short but challenging climbs, twisty descents, and village streets paved in brick. Sorry, no real pave, the bricks will have to suffice!
39/25 gearing is recommended for one stiff climb, road surfaces are good enough for 700 x 23 clinchers. There is some gravel in corners.
