Park City is back! The route will travel through the towns of Summit County. The riders are welcomed into the ranch with a nasty short Category 3 climb that has segments of sustained 15% grades. After a tough segment through Midway, it’s a race to the bottom of Pine Canyon Road, better known as Empire Pass. In all previous visits to Empire Pass, the racers had to battle the road conditions as well as the 10-20% grades. Since the race last raced up Empire Pass, the road has been repaved. Gone is the rough road base of years past. Riders will welcome the fresh smooth asphalt up to Empire Pass. Will this change the outcome of the race? Come early and get your viewing spot on Upper Main Street in Park City for the exciting finish.
