PROLOGUE TIME TRIAL
Climb? Fast? Climb Fast? Do you have what it takes?
The Mountain Prologue Time Trial is a true test of character. The 5 mile TT course features 1100 foot elevation gain, including the climb of "Alpe de Gannett", a gut-wrenching climb at any speed of 800 feet in less than a mile. The mountaintop finish is reminiscent of the TDF climbs (L'Alpe D'Huez, Col de la Tourmalet, etc). Riders will be able to test themselves, but also shoot for the course record of with a 19:28.9, established in 2008 by our 5-time undefeated champion Cheyne Hoag. See how last years victims/participants, fared in past tours [timing provided by Yellow Jacket Training. Our thanks to David and Ellen Boutillier]
