This is our local stage race. Home field. It’s a super rad Tucson event that we take part in every year. Friday is the Time Trial. We practiced the course on Sunday, so get excited for your real run on Friday! Saturday is the Road Race down in Green Valley. And Sunday is the Circuit Race course that starts and ends at PCC West. Sunday is a great day to spectate.
Stage Race Notes:
If you were not already aware, TBC is a stage race. You have to race and finish each day to move on to the next day. No dropping out when the going gets tough! Every day, make sure all your stuff fits into 1 single bag. No bag throw up! You will want to bring a change of clothes (ideally Grupo T shirt) with you so you can get out of your chammy as quickly as possible, you will also want lunch Saturday. DO NOT bring water bottles that you care about! They will probably get lost in the Feed Zone. On Friday, wear a skin suit! They are faster. On Saturday and Sunday, you MUST wear the newest team kit. Either wash it or double dip. I don’t care. This years kit only.

Also, bring a real lunch with you for after you race.
