BACK FOR 2012!!

Registration will open at 8:15am at Spring Valley School on Pentz Road (near the intersection of Hwy. 70 - this is the lunch stop for the Wildflower Century). The event, as usual, is FREE! 

The Start/Finish Line is on Pentz Road - just in front of the school. The Category "A" event will start at 9:00am; the Category "B" event will start at 9:01am; and the Category "C" & "Juniors" event will start at 9:02am.

This course is approximately 6.4 miles in length and climbs about 400+ feet per lap. The Category "A" and "B" groups will each do 6 laps, for a total of about 38 miles and 2,400+ feet of climbing. The Category "C" group will do 3 laps, for a total of 19.2 miles and 1,200 feet of climbing. The course Starts/Finishes at Spring Valley School, and goes in a clockwise direction - Pentz Road, Hwy. 70, Wheelock Road, Durham-Pentz Road, and back on Pentz Road to the finish.

Again, most USA Cycling rules apply to these races - you know, WEAR YOUR HELMET, don't ride like a nutcase, be safe, and all that good stuff. Water bottle hand-ups will be SOLELY dependent upon volunteers - so, if ya have a volunteer, bring 'em out!! I will bring "some" water out, but not a ton.

A mention about Tri Bars - You can have Tri Bars on your bicycle - BUT, you must NOT use them if you are in a pack or paceline! Normally, in a USA Cycling mass-start race, you would not be allowed to have them on your bicycle - but I know many of us like them on our bicycles and use them for training/triathlons/TTs. This isn't the World Championships - we do these Circuit Races for fun, fitness and practice - but please do NOT use your Tri Bars in a pack/paceline situation.

Held rain or shine!
Helmets are mandatory!
(50-point event in the 2012 Butte Road R.A.C.E. Series PLUS, there will be 2 Intermediate Sprints during the race!)
