August 16, 2014
Registration is open for 2014. For your registration you will get an entry into the grueling race route of your choice (naturally) as well as a post-race meal, a jar of grog from our dear friends at Lagunitas, and the t-shirt off our back saying “I was there, I did that, and you should tell me I did a really really good job.” For you big shots that want to see who deals in your gunsights, we’ve got a list of your currently registered competition here. For the rest of you, use this as a ridesharing tool or an après-race beer toasting planner. Same day registrations or transfers will be available on Friday and Saturday of race weekend for an additional $10 (total $82).
Can’t make it, have a registration, need a transfer? Find someone to give/sell your registration to, and have them fill out the transfer form. They will need your rider ID, and email to complete the form. Transfers are $10.

Prizes and Awards
Top 5 racers in each category regardless of number of racers entered are given a medal for placing. Great swag is also handed out by our generous sponsors to those folks who worked hard on race-day to earn themselves a spot. Cash is awarded to top pro and singlespeed open racers. A minimum of 5 racers in a given category is required in order to receive a cash payout. You must be present in order to receive any prizes or awards given for placing in your category.
They changed slightly from last year. Hoping to give the Sport men some breathing room, and even up the category sizes in Expert and Beginner.

The Course in Detail
With a downtown start right in front of Santa Rosa City Hall, this race tops out at 30.7 miles with about 3,800′ of climbing. Everybody starts together with a neutral roll-out for 1/2 mile and then we open the throttle and race to the entrance of Howarth Park at Summerfield Road. 2.5 Miles of city streets makes for an exciting start to the day. Once you’re in Howarth Park you’ll make your way through Spring Lake Regional Park and under the start/finish banner for the first time before ascending Violetti trail into the mouth of Annadel State Park.
