Turn left onto McKee Road and follow it south for approximately 10 miles to Uvas Reservoir. The starting location is adjacent to the top of the Uvas Dam.
location (DIFFERENT FROM PREVIOUS YEARS): MAP
The course is a combination of all terrains,
Flats, Hills, and rolling terrain. The most challenging part of the course is
the part called "THE WALL", for obvious reasons.
"THE WALL" is 10 miles into the course and consists of a 3/8 of a mile grade at 10% and above. The course is 16 miles per lap, all turns are right handers. From the start the course heads north along a generally flat sections for 3 or so miles.
The course then hits some long rolling stretches before turning right onto Oak Glen. The course then proceeds along a flat section in the westerly direction along Chesbro Reservoir with a few mild rollies before again turning right at Llagas Road. The section along Llagas is generally flat and can be very fast in a fast group.
However, this is where the party ends, upon turning right onto Sycamore road and approaching the infamous "WALL" Once over the "WALL", if you can make it over, then a right turn onto Watsonville Road is made followed by a right back onto Uvas Road and following the rollies back to the finish.
