Have you seen the weather forecast for Saturday? What a great way to start the season – SUNNY and forecasted to be 50 degrees. A PERFECT day for starting the racing season. PLUS the road is in GREAT shape! No excuses – we hope to see you there. * Please come early on race morning and do not plan to sign up after 10:30 am. Registration will close promptly at 10:30 am so we can post start lists, and prepare for an 11:00am on-time race start. The first race is notoriously busy on race morning, please come early! * All racers must check in by 10:30am (even if you signed up online). If you do not check in we will assume you are not racing and you will not be placed on the start list. Looking forward to seeing you all there! we will draw for one free entry to the 2014 Tour of Anchorage from all racers at Portage TT.
A 9-mile out-and-back time trial starting at the Portage Glacier Visitors Center parking area. The course is pan flat, but be prepared for wind! Course map here.
