Format: A mass start vent with prizes by category

Time: Registration at 9:00 am and start at 10:00 am

Location: East side of the mountain at the corner of Guadalupe Canyon Parkway and Old Bayshore Highway in Brisbane.

Event Description: After the mass-start, riders tackle the east side of San Bruno, with its steady 7-8% grades. Approximately half-way, the road levels, where you'll turn and enter the park. Don't let up the effort though! You'll then pass under a tunnel into the final stretch, where the narrow road tackles a series of switchbacks at 8% to 10% grade. Rounding the last, the finish will will be close ahead. Give it everything you have all the way to the line!

Portable trainers for warming up are recommended. Weather could be cold and wet are 70+ F and sunny -- be prepared...
