Following the huge success of the inaugural event last year, Armidale Cycling Club is proud to present the 2014 Thunderbolt Roubaix taking place on the same day as the infamous Paris Roubaix in France. This year we’ll have a full mechanical backup team courtesy of the Armidale Bicycle Centre who will also be putting on a morning tea in the shop for any survivors.
Swanny has undertaken extensive research to dig out some of the most challenging pave (well, gravel, mud and dirt anyway) in the region and mapped out a fantastic route which you can view in detail here. He’s also done up a special flyer which details the race route that is sure to be a winner. So dig out your retro bikes and clothing, wrap some tubs around your shoulders and get it in the diary – Sunday 13th April – 7am.
Quite frankly, we can’t wait, but if you needed any further inspiration after that – check out this great SBS documentary on the 2007 edition of the real thing.
