Jonesville Road Race - THIS Saturday, July 30th at 8:00AM..........

Saturday, July 30th - The Jonesville Road Race/Time Trial - 8:00AM:

Registration will open at 7:30am at the bottom of Humboldt Road here in Chico(right next to Stilson Canyon Road), with both the Category "A", Category "B" and Category "C" groups starting together promptly at 8:00AM. Women's, Juniors and Masters racers start together, but will be scored separately. This event was first held in June 2009 and proved to be a classic - see the 2009 Results listed below!

The course is approximately 35.5 miles in length and climbs about 5,300+ feet from Chico to the Parking Lot up in Jonesville, California(a few miles past Butte Meadows). Same distance as the Messilla Valley Circuit Race.......but with almost twice as much climbing. I will be in the SAG Vehicle for support, water, breakdowns, whatever might be needed - and will be going back and forth on the course if there is a problem. In addition, Deanna Wentland & Family will be driving SAG support as well, and will be providing some treats for the riders at the finish! I will have water & Clif Bars at the finish too, but will not be able to give anyone a ride back to come prepared!! A map of this course can be found here:

Helmets are mandatory!
