After a solid week of all-things Barry-Roubaix, we’re down to the race itself. Some seriously strong rain in Middleville have elicited flood advisories for the race course and general area. There Will Be Mud, would be an appropriate last-minute tag line. Over 1,500 riders are, by the time you read this, already staging and toeing the line for a day of tough slogging through mud, sand and the thick sea of crushed souls that is The Killer Gravel Road Race. kolo tc will have a photo gallery and race report up as soon as humanly possible, allotting time for a stop at a car wash and a dip in the tub to get the grit out.

The very best of luck to everyone and hopes for a safe, fun race.
