Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo
Century, ULTRA, & Time Trial
(And Chief Ladiga Cruise Family Ride)
Saturday & Sunday
May 18 & 19, 2019
Join us for the inaugural Cheaha Challenge Time Trial, held in conjunction with the weekend events of the 27th Annual Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo Century & ULTRA on Sunday, May 19. (Note: The century ride is the UCI Qualifier for the UCI Gran Fondo Worlds late summer/fall of 2019.)
Experience the thrill of exiting a time trial podium down a ramp onto a closed 12-mile straight shot course (only three turns, all near the finish), and test what you’re made of as you barrel along the flat, fast, fun path.
Start: Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 8:00 a.m. at Eubanks Welcome Center, Piedmont, AL (Note: You will be assigned a start time based on your age.)
Finish: Pete Mathews Coliseum, Jacksonville State University, Jacksonville, AL (Same venue as the Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo & ULTRA, and Chief Ladiga Cruise)
Course: Piedmont to Jacksonville all on the Chief Ladiga Trail, a paved rails-to-trail. Link: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/28935895
It’s YOU against the clock!
*****NO-RACE DAY REGISTRATION!*****
Entry fee (online only): $40 from now until May 1, 2019.
$50 from May 1 – 17, 2019.
UCI doesn’t recognize overall/1st, 2nd , 3rd (m/f); however, just like for the Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo Century ride – the qualifier for the UCI Gran Fondo World Championship, we will recognize the overall winners with a special award. UCI recognizes only Age Group Winners (m/f), and each 1st Place Age Group Winner will receive a UCI Jersey, and all 1st, 2nd, 3rd Place Age Group Winners will receive a UCI medal.
Note: Age Groups for the TT are the same as the age groups for the Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo Century ride.
