    April 12, 2012

    “The third annual Barry’s Roubaix cycling race presented by Local Ride Bike Shop on Sunday saw 100 riders, including some of the country’s best, take to the roads and dykes of Pitt Meadows BC in a remarkable show of strength, skill, and tactics.”

    “The perfect weather and mountain backdrop set an idyllic scene for what would be a day of dramatic races. “Spectators were treated to lots of action, from aggressive attacks and photo finishes to crashes and flat tires,” said race organizer and Local Ride Bike Shop owner Barry Lyster. The race pays homage to the famous Paris-Roubaix held on the same day in northern France.”

    Team H&R Block had a great showing out for the race and Rob Britton took home the win with Garneau’s Tim Abercrombie shortly behind. H&R Block’s 3 Mike Sidic rounded out the podium sharing third place with Jesse Reams of Hagen Berman Elite.

    A great race indeed. To read more about the event and see the full results check out canadiancyclist.com
