The same never-ending course through Sam Houston National Forest, 54 long, hilly miles!
GPS Map Elevation and Course
None before and during the race, except maps and directions. But yes, you will find a great selection of recovery foods & beverages at the finish line (and maybe a memento) - but you have to get there first - alive!
NO amenities means NO police protection. All roads open to traffic. NO emergency medical service. NO sag support. NO road markings.
JUST YOU AND THE CLOCK
accompanied by the heat & the pain & dogs & rough roads & Texas pickup trucks. You can count on it!
Maybe, but come prepared for self-contained misery.
This Time Trial is 54 long and lonely miles, so bring plenty of water, or be prepared to stop at a store, or die. 3 large bottles recommended as a minimum. Most people will need 4 or more.
AWARDS: Yes, for overall MALE and FEMALE
RULES (more serious stuff)
Helmets must be worn at all times on the bike; no drafting; riders will start at one minute intervals; tandems & teams welcome; waiver must be signed before start. Bringing a cell phone along strongly recommended. Emergency contact numbers provided.
Very welcome & needed at start and/or finish. Most needed & appreciated volunteer duty: water hand-off in Huntsville.
STILL only $5.00 (cash/check) per person!
