Specific event details will be posted at least three weeks before race day.

In the meantime, basic course information is available below. The road/pursuit race may be replaced by a gravel race and held at another location nearby. Details will be finalized in the spring.

Notice: If the race permit granted by TIR prohibits cyclists from riding in packs during road races, this event will be run as a pursuit race. Each participant will be assigned a handicap based on previous experience and grouped along with 3 to 5 others of similar ability. These small groups will depart at times according to their handicap and will chase down groups that left earlier while avoiding being caught by groups leaving later. This type of road race is a great exercise in developing strategies for breakaways. Actual race times (not handicaps) will be used to rank participants within their respective category.
