A .5 mile course in downtown Woodland with one 270 degree turn.
An insane climb. By ProTour standards this mere 4 mile course would likely be rated a Category I. It has a 9% average grade and pitches in the unmentionable. A true test of mettle, as well as legs...and what's best, a mass start. The mass start format will allow for battles all the way up the mountain in epic Grand Tour fashion. However, it's classified as a time trial so it's a great chance for the skinny guys to get some TT BAR points.
Bring your kids so they can do a Youth race, and then cheer for you as you race uphill.
Both events will count individually toward BAR. The hill climb is classified as a Time Trial. Prizes will be awarded based on combined points. 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 for each event.
SPECIAL NOTE - Descending after the climb:
In the interest of safety, OBRA has requested that descending the mountain be done by a route differing from the race route up the mountain.
Descending by way of the race route may result in disqualification.
The criterium course surrounds the local police station. Please follow traffic laws and wear your helmet at all times. The Woodland Police and a local Veterans organization are hoping this event will draw Woodland youth to cycling so let's set a good example.
Staging and parking:
Parking is on-street near race course. Please be considerate of driveways and local resident needs.
Parking and staging are at the baseball fields at intersection of Hillsdale Dr and Green Mountain Rd. Why not ride your bike from the crit to the climb, it's only a couple of miles.
Please follow traffic laws and wear your helmet at all times. The criterium course surrounds the local police
station. The Woodland Police and a local Vets organization are hoping this event will draw Woodland youth to
cycling, so let's set a good example.
