This one will be held rain or shine(snow & ice will postpone it though), and is an HORS Category Climb in the 2012 Butte Hill Climb Time Trial Series!
Registration will open at 8:30am, with the 1st rider taking off at 9:01am - and we will go in 1-minute intervals. The Dark Canyon Uphill Time Trial course is quite the climb! The road is very quiet - and the climb is very consistent, with some steep sections. The course is just off of Hwy. 70 - further up from Yankee Hill and Lunt Road. Take the Right Turn at Big Bend Road off of Hwy. 70.....and follow it down and down to Dark Canyon Road. The start location is at the bottom of Dark Canyon Road - near the old boat launch. Just look for me and the R.A.C.E.mobile at the start location(there's a parking area near the start). The last time we did this climb, I don't think we had a single car on the road during the entire Time Trial - had the road all to ourselves......and the area is very beautiful!! The Dark Canyon Uphill Time Trial course is approximately 3.5 miles in length, climbs approximately 1,500 feet, and is considered an Hors Category Climb in the Series.

***And, I still need 1 volunteer to help me start the riders off that Sunday morning as well - If you can help out, just send me an e-mail - you get a 3-point bonus in the Series, you still get to race it(just be the last rider to start), and you will have my undying gratitude.
