I have done quite a few of Shenandoah Mountain Touring's races. This one is new to me.

Last year was the first for the Rough Roubaix and I was there since it's in my backyard. Promoter Chris Scott is awesome and does a first class job.  Turnout was small due to weather - probably 20+ riders, as the temps were in the 40s and pouring rain.  Most opted for the shorter 60 mile route due to the nasty cold and wet conditions, so really not a fair assessment of this event.

The shorter route misses the climbing over into West Virginia and basically the crazy stuff.  The first 10-15 miles you pass dozens of Mennonites in horse and buggies heading to church on a Sunday morning here in our Shenandoah Valley - a unique and amazing sight to share on a bike.

This has the potential to be a great event, and I will definitely be back.
