The 14th running of Jeremy’s Roubaix took place on April 9. The race began as the Haris Roubaix but was renamed after B.C. cycling coach Jeremy Storie who passed away suddenly in 2013. The race uses gravel dyke paths instead of rough cobbles like its French namesake but the flat course is still a challenging ride.
The race takes place in Pitt Meadows, BC. in the Lower Fraser Valley, east of Vancouver and photographer Tammy Brimner was on hand to take in the action.
Annika Todd (Trek Red Truck) took the win solo ahead of breakaway companion Rachel Canning (Fluevog’s Crit Nasty) in the women’s Cat 1/2 race with Haley Gill (Pender Racing p/b BICICLETTA) in third.
Dylan Davies (Langlois Brown Racing) won the men’s Cat 1/2 race from a reduced bunch with Alexander Murison (Trek Red Truck) second and Mirtchell Ketler (Smart Savvy+ Garneau) third.
Isabella Bertold (TaG Cycling Race Team) won the Cat 3 women’s race while Duncan Bryson (Victoria Wheelers) won the men’s race in the same category. For full results visit localride.ca.
