2014 Amish Country Roubaix Cancelled

It is with sad regret that we have to inform the race community that the Amish Country Roubaix scheduled for April 12, 2014 has been cancelled.

Racers who have preregistered with be refunded their entry fee. Details on refunds will appear here as soon as we have them.

This winter has been absolutely horrific for the dirt and gravel roads of the course. Once the thaw arrived, large sections of road began to experience washouts, blow outs and extreme erosion. Finally, the overnight loss of our staging area at the Holmes County Fairgrounds to the rising and raging Killbuck Creek stuck a fork in our decision. Our event is assembled by a tiny group of guys on a very thin shoestring of budget. A fair chunk of our start-up money comes straight out of our pockets. The weather this year has been so extreme that we simply felt the risk was to great that we would have a washout and end up eating those costs if we didn’t call the race early. We are very sorry for folks who have looked forward to the event and made plans too travel to beautiful Holmes County from far away. It is our hope that you’ll come to Holmes County nevertheless–preferably once the rain has stopped and the river has dropped–and enjoy some of the best bicycling territory around.
