This is a flat 10.6 mile loop.......with a 3-mile stretch of gravel/dirt
. 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
training for the upcoming Chico Stage Race.
& "B" will each do 4 laps of this course - for a total of 42.4
. 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
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. ;)
