The Grainland Road Race (in honor of Paris-Roubaix!!):

The 2nd & Final Stage in today's Honey Grain Omnium Bicycle Race!

This is a flat 10.6 mile loop.......with a 3-mile stretch of gravel/dirt per lap. We've done this race once before - in 2011 - and the riders had a BLAST doing it.......so, it's now on the R.A.C.E. calendar for good! The Start/Finish location is on Aguas Frias Road - right at the 10-Mile Time Trial Start/Finish spot, just south of Dayton 4-corners. This course is approximately 10.6 miles in length, includes about 59 feet of climbing per lap, and has a 3-mile section of dirt/gravel in it......GREAT training for the upcoming Chico Stage Race.

Category "A" & "B" will each do 4 laps of this course - for a total of 42.4 miles. Category "B" will include the Juniors, Women's, Masters and Category "C" riders.....all scored separately. Category "C" & "Juniors" will do just 2 laps of the course.

The course follows a Clockwise direction - south on Aguas Frias, west on Grainland Road(the gravel section), north on 7-Mile Lane, east on Ord Ferry Road.....and then back south again on Aguas Frias Road. The turns will be marked with Route Arrows.

YES - road bikes will work great, but you can also use Cyclocross bicycles...mountain bikes....or whatever you might have lying around(a unicycle?). I will have water at the Start/Finish area.
 
***The famous - or infamous - Grainland Road Race trophies will be awarded to the winners in each Category. ;)
