Spectator Tips: It will be a long day of racing beginning at 7:30 AM and concluding with the Men’s Pro Road which should finish up around 5 PM. If your time is limited, the Pro category races begin at noon. If you are looking to come out and support the Wounded Warrior Project Cycling Team, they will be doing the Time Trial at 9:30 AM. The start finish line and Spectator Expo is adjacent to the Hard Rock Cafe Pavilion parking lot. The course is a closed 6.3 mile circuit on the new University Blvd, so the racers will be passing the Expo approximately every 15 minutes. There will be plenty of food at the Expo, but you may want to bring a cooler. Many spectators will set up on the steepest part of the Snake Course called the Wall which is a few hundred meters north of the Expo parking lot. The Snake Wall tops out at 11% and is where the race will be won or lost. Schloog’s are encouraged to bring their favorite cow bell.
