Jeremy’s Roubaix cycle race set for Sunday

First event in Cycling BC’s Premier Road Series in Pitt Meadows

Local Ride Racing’s spring classic bike race Jeremy’s Roubaix is set to hit the rural roads and gravel dikes of Pitt Meadows on April 12.

The name for this annual event has been changed to honour a Canadian cycling legend, Jeremy Storie, who passed away in 2013.

This year’s event will be the first race of Cycling B.C.’s Premier Road Series, with winners in their respective categories receiving leader jersey’s and bragging rights heading into the next race in the series, Race The Ridge on May 30.

New for this year will be the inclusion of full youth categories in the BC Premier Road Series. Jeremy’s Roubaix will also offer upgrade points for riders looking to move up in categories.

Support for Jeremy’s Roubaix has been outstanding, and Fort Langley Cyclery has stepped-up to offer prizing and to provide technical support at the wheel pits.

“I am very pleased to have Fort Langley Cyclery on board for this year’s race. Their bike shop has a very strong road, cyclocross and track presence in the area, and it was also one of Jeremy’s favorite local bike shops to visit,” said race organizer Barry Lyster.

Registration closes April 8 at 6 p.m.  There is no registration on the day of the race.
