Mountain Top Finish in the heart of the Mon National Forest! Leave your expensive Flux-Capacitors and fancy wheels at home cause its WV and we got pot holes, but do not forget your climbing legs, and yes, they can have hair on them too. We don't judge! 

Be prepared to climb with this course. All classes will face two large climbs of 7 miles in length. This course also takes you along the Cheat River for several miles of wonderful view of the mountain state.

The course will features a mountain top finish on Sugarlands Road. This climb has one of the largest grades in the entire county. The start of this race will happen at Tucker County High School, but for safety reasons there will be a controlled roll to the bottom of Sugarlands Land for the start. This will give riders who didn't get a chance to pre-ride the course a good view of the finishing climb. Once at the bottom of the mountain the race is on.

THE START: As always we ALL will leave Tucker County High School at 11:40 am, 20 minutes before the first race start time, and roll out to the base of the Sugarlands climb.  From there we will stage and start the event!.
