Hill Country adventure at its finest! Staging from the municipal campground/golf course in San Saba, TX and following marked dirt and gravel roads to this amazing crossing of the Colorado River. These routes are primarily on gravel and dirt roads. Traditional road bikes are not recommended. Gravel rigs, cyclocross bikes and hardtail mtb's are the suggested bicycles to use.
Routes from 30-100+ miles. Please note, it will most likely take a total route of at least 100K to be able to ride to the bridge. We are also excited to announce that our event date coincides with the annual Cow Camp Cookoff BBQ competition in San Saba! We are trying to get more details related to that lined up so folks can make plans around their appetites.
Staging/Start/Finish will be at the San Saba River RV Park Club House. This means indoor restrooms and air conditioning folks! Tent camping is available with registration and RV spots are available if you book your own.
This is a self supported event. There are no SAG vehicles and riders are expected to make their own arrangements in case of breakdown on course. Tent camping (by reservation) is included with registration. Once you register you will receive camping details in your confirmation email.
There will be water tables along the route but most likely no other amenities available. We suggest carrying enough nutrition to go your full distance. Routes under 100 miles will be marked but you should always have a navigation device as a backup. Registration includes free access to premium services on the Ride With GPS app if you don't already have a navigation device.
More details soon, stay tuned!

A Race - The Aces of the field. If it is a payout race this will be the category. Equivalent to Pro/Cat 1/19+ Mph Average over 100K
B Race - Badasses. The every day fast folks most of us are jealous of. Equivalent to Cat 2 and Cat 3 sandbaggers/16-18 Mph Average over 100K
C Race - Competitive. Likes the thrill of the chase and a badass wannabe. 14-16 Mph Average over 100K
D Ride - Developmental. Get out there and see what you can do. No pressure of any kind but you will have a recorded time to reference if you are curious how you stack up with others. Not worried about rankings? We're cool with that. This is also the preferred category for the person doing this type of event for the first time and has no idea which race category is appropriate for them. Ride non competitive the first event to establish a base line.
Categories are self declared but we reserve the right to force sandbaggers into an appropriate category at any time. Hint, if you podium more than once you are probably going to be upgraded. If you "win" a C race with a big gap on the field you will probably be upgraded that race unless you've never raced before.
Age breaks will be determined based on total number of entries once the event reaches capacity. The formula will be 8-10 racer per category (age/gender) based on youngest age and up. Once 10 racers are in an age/gender group the next group begins. Racing age is determined by age on event day.
