The course will be the same or very similar to the course we used this spring and which everyone seemed to like. The course will run clockwise, which makes for a great flow and relatively safe cornering. Below is an aerial map of the course (view a larger version of the map in Google Maps) and a freshly uploaded course preview video, shot a couple days before the race.
The basic course loop (shown in red) is about 1.4 mile long and features about 80 ft of elevation gain per lap.The start of each race heat will be staged at the SE Corner of the parking lot (right off to the main entrance road). The course runs 80% on farm roads with a couple grass sections (at the start and along the parking lot). There are no paved sections! All along the course, there will be plenty of room to pass riders.
What type of bike and tires should I race?
