It's a stage race format based on a riders overall time.  Like the Tour de France.  There are 6 categories.  Loosely based on the Missoula Tuesday Night Hell Ride A, B, and C groups.  If you have a USA Cycling Road Category.  We will be submitting race results for upgrades and other purposes. Here's the guideline:

  • A = cat 1/2/3
  • B = cat 3/4
  • C = cat 4

Register for the group you feel most comfortable in.  Sandbagging is allowed.  We'll honor stage winners directly after the finish of each stage and then the overall at the conclusion of the road race.  Leaders jerseys will need to be worn in the stages for all 6 categories.
