Race Start:

We do not post the start times of age heats because it is essential that everyone rack their bikes before all races start. The Athlete Briefing at 9:30am is essential for day-of-race safety and route information.

 

We will endeavor to have the longer races for the older athletes start earlier. We recognize that it makes for a long and tedious day for those athletes to wait until late-morning to begin.
