Warm Up Area / Race Staging / Start area
All races will be staged on the boulevard opposite the Finish Line (see map). This is part of the warm up loop. Assemble 10 min before your start. Road races will have approximately 500m lead in section before the main race circuit. The Dirt Dash MTB race will have approximately 1km lead in to the main circuit.
A 1.5 km warm up lap on paved roads will be designated, signed and marshaled (see map). Please restrict your warm up ride to the designated area. Portions of the warm up area will be periodically closed to allow for race finishes. This area is also open to the general public, so please use caution and be respectful of other park users.
All road races will finish adjacent to Parking Lot F on the main paved boulevard. Riders WILL NOT pass through the finish line on each lap, but will have an approximately 500m “off circuit” finishing straight (see map).
Participants in the Dirt Dash MTB race will finish adjacent to the registration building and Parking Lot F on and unpaved portion of the course (see map).
Licensed Road Race Categories must use a traditional road bike or cyclocross bike with road style drop handlebars. Under 18 (Junior, Cadet, Minime) gear restrictions apply.
