Stetinas Sierra Prospect

Stetina's Sierra Prospect

September 14 - September 16 2018
Truckee, California, USA

Stetina's Sierra Prospect will be scored with Bike Monkey's new "Road Rally" format, the perfect mix of competition and camaraderie. There are 5 timed segments, some flat, some hilly; this is your moment to throw down and show what you’re made of. Outside of the segments there is no penalty to refuel at aid stations, relax, snap pictures, and be social.

Just like Pro racing, you can play to your strengths. The Overall Classification is all segments combined. Is gravity your foe? Go for the Sprinter segments. The King of Brockway Classification is available to Express riders only. Or just go all in on one segment, live in the moment, don't think about what's to come, try and snag the fast time against your fellow Prospectors.

We begin at the uncompromising Northstar Resort just outside of Truckee, California. Our journey takes us up and over Brockway summit. There are two routes to choose from. The "Express" is a solid ride with 40 miles of beautiful lake vistas and 3,600' of elevation gain.

The "Intrepid" includes the full road rally competition format of the event with 3 timed segments along your way. You will descend Highway 50 into the stunning Nevada desert.

After rolling north through Carson and the outskirts of Reno, Nevada you will tackle the sixteen and a half mile climb over Mount Rose, 11 miles of which will be timed.

Each route will offer timed segments. Segments will be highly visible with signage before, and at the start as well as 500 meters to go and at the finish. 

SEGMENT 1: SAND HARBOR

INTREPID + EXPRESS

The Sand Harbor segment begins just outside of Incline Village and is mostly flat giving advantage to bigger riders with power. Drafting will help you here. This segment is 5.1 miles with 270' of gain.

SEGMENT 2: CARSON

INTREPID

This one's for the engines. We'll have a flat segment through the Carson Desert to give the powerhouses a chance to bury the hatchet.

SEGMENT 3: MOUNT ROSE

INTREPID

The highest year-round pass in the Sierra Nevada topping out at 8,900'. After you've already covered more than 60 miles the Mt. Rose climb is 4,200' and 16.5 miles. We let you warm up a bit and time the last 11 miles and 3000' to the top. It's big. Really big.

SEGMENT 4: ROSE FROM INCLINE

EXPRESS

Little brother is all grown up. Express riders will tacke Rose via Country Club Dr and up to the summit on the Tahoe side. Not as long as the Reno side and with a huge shoulder, but imtimidating none the less.

 

SEGMENT 5: SECRET CLIF BAR SEGMENT

INTREPID + EXPRESS

At the finish on Rose we have shuttles to bring you back to Northstar. Or join Pete and Gary Erikson of Clif Bar for a group ride back to Northstar along a secret road with a bonus segment!
