Date change for the Vilas Uphill Time Trial this weekend!

Hi Everyone! I apologize, but we are switching days of the Vilas Road Uphill Time Trial this weekend - the Vilas Time Trial is taking place on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 13th at 9:00AM - NOT Saturday. The IMBA Trail Care Crew Event is this Saturday(see information flyer above for this great IMBA event).

Sunday, November 13th - The Vilas Road Uphill Time Trial (starts at Nicalog & Cohasset Road) - 9:00AM - Hors Category Climb:

Registration will open at 8:30am, with the 1st rider taking off at 9:01AM - and, we will go in 1-minute intervals. The Start/Registration area is at Nicalog Road & Cohasset Road - this is the same Start location that we use for the Cohasset Time Trial. Look for me and the R.A.C.E.mobile at the Starting area. The Vilas Road course is approximately 6.9 miles in length and has about 2,400 feet of total climbing - and is considered an Hors Category climb in the Series....and the big points that come with it! The route follows Cohasset Road from Nicalog Road....and you go up and up and up. Once you get to the Cohasset Store, you keep going up - but take Vilas Road instead of Cohasset Road(look for the Route Arrows on the ground to mark the direction). Vilas Road continues up and up. The finish for this one is just before Vilas Road turns to gravel. For a map of the Vilas Road Uphill Time Trial course, please visit:

***And, I still need 1 volunteer to help me start the riders off on Sunday morning - If you can help out, just send me an e-mail - you get a 3-point bonus in the Series, you still get to race it(just be the last rider to start), and you will have my undying gratitude!!
Helmets are mandatory!
