Road Race

Saturday, June 7

After the time trial has warmed them up, racers will tackle our queen stage, a challenging road race through the picturesque hills north of town, ending with an exciting sprint down Commerce Street. This is the most important stage of the weekend, as it awards to most points toward the valuable overall omnium prizes.

The 22-mile course includes several steep and long climbs. Riders will have to be on their toes, as any one of them could invite an attack from their rivals – or an attack of their own! One of the steepest climbs crests near the Galena Cellars Vineyard, which makes it an excellent spot for spectating.

We also recommend viewing from Council Hill Station, a watering hole and fun hangout directly on the course.

Elites should be sure to consult the rules for the king and queen of the mountain and sprint competitions.

Start/finish: In front of Old market House at 123 N. Commerce St.

Note: Juniors in the 10-14 division will race a shortened course, starting at the Galena Cellars Vineyard, 4826 North Ford Road.

Important: Riders should be aware of the course and how many laps their field is assigned to do. It is each rider's responsibility to either turn right on Jo Daviess Street into the feed zone or continue on to the finish. Riders should not count on marshals or safety officials to know how many laps are left in their particular race.
