The 52-Mile Midway Road Race

60-Point Event in the Butte Road R.A.C.E. Series!

Sunday, August 5, 9:00 AM

This event occured in the past


NEW FOR 2012!


Get ready for some late season Centuries, Road Races, Time Trials, Rides with this flat 52-mile Road Race....or just come on out and get in a good flat ride today!

Registration will open at 8:15am at Ord Bend Park - the same starting location as the Butte City Road Race. All Categories will start at 9:00am from the Parking Lot at Ord Bend Park(bathrooms and parking available there!) I will have ice water & bananas at the Start and Finish. Categories offered in this race include:

Category "A" - Advanced & Intermediate Riders
Category "B" - Intermediate & Novice Riders
Category "C" - Novice & Newer Riders
Women's Category
Masters 50+ Category
Juniors Category

Racing will start at 9:00am at Ord Bend Park and travel east on Ord Ferry Road. The race will continue on to Ord Ferry as it turns into Durham-Dayton Highway....and heads into Durham. Once in Durham, California, the riders will make the right turn on to The Midway.....and follow it all the way to Hwy. 162. The race will turn right on to Hwy. 162 and follow 162 through Butte City - and make the right turn on to Hwy. 45. The ride follows Hwy. 45 until Ord Ferry Road.....and then make the right turn on to Ord Ferry....where the finish is about a 1/2 mile down the road at Ord Bend Park(the start location).

The race is approximately 52 miles in length is very flat. Please see map on this page for course. If you have ANY questions, please e-mail me at ChicoCyclist@gmail.com.

I will, as usual, be driving SAG support back and forth during the race, and the turns will be marked with Route Arrows.

***There will be 4 Intermediate Sprints during this Road Race - each counting towards 5-points in the 2012 Butte Road R.A.C.E. Series. Each Category racing will get the points for each sprint. The Sprint locations will be scattered around the course - I will inform the riders at the Start Line where each will be located.

Getting out in a group for a ride like this one is GREAT training - and a ton of fun. Roads are usually quiet on Sunday mornings out here, so take advantage of it! I will have photos and videos of the race available online by the following morning.

HELD RAIN OR SHINE!
HELMETS ARE MANDATORY!
(60-Point Event in the 2012 Butte Road R.A.C.E. Series AND 4 to 5 Intermediate Sprints during the race counting for 5-Points Each).
