RACE #1: WHITING RANCH TIME TRIAL - March 18th, 2017

Whiting Ranch Time Trial

THE RACE

The Whiting Ranch Time Trial is the most unique mountain bike racing experience in Southern California. Incorporating elements of cross-country, enduro and class time-trial formats into one unparalleled event, this off-road race is as challenging as it is fun. Racers leave the line at 30-second intervals. Beginning with a 660-foot climb up "dreaded hill" racers then descend steep, rocky trails before climbing and descending again to the start/finish line. This events demands the ability to maintain composure while metering your effort carefully over a short distance. Everyone loves it.

THE COURSE

Length and Elevation: 4 mile loop / Approximately 1000 feet elevation gain

The race starts in the park at the bottom of Dreaded Hill. Racers will head up Dreaded and then descend down towards Mustard and 4 corners, turning right they will head to and descend Cactus. Next, racers will head up to Vulture View road to Sage Scrub then to Line Shack road towards Serrano Cow trail back to the foot of Dreaded. (We are going back to the original course to avoid two way traffic on the fire roads)

If you need to walk any section of the course it is OK! All categories are allowed to walk, run, or crawl sections of Dreaded if they can not make it up any section of the climb. Racers must submit to faster riders catching them on the course. NO Blocking is allowed!
