April 14th, the 3rd annual Battenkill-Roubaix bike race comes to the Cambridge valley.

The race is fashioned after the prestigious 100 year old Paris-Roubaix in France where racers trek over a very difficult course that includes cobblestone paths, narrow roads, and scenic European villages. It's North American counterpart - the Battenkill-Roubaix - features both paved and dirt road sections, difficult hill climbs, and exciting passes through the small villages of Salem, Cambridge, and Greenwich, NY where an estimated 2500 spectators were present for the 2006 edition.

Race organizers Farm Team Cycling of Cambridge, NY are proud to announce that the 2007 Battenkill-Roubaix is the largest Pro/Am cycling race in the Northeast, and is already the fastest-growing Pro/Am race in the United States. With just 4 weeks of open registration remaining, more than 780 racers from 18 US States and Canada have already registered. Nearly 1000 racers are expected by race day on April 14.

Mark your calendars for a great weekend and join us on race day!
