Courses:
Stage 1 TT: The 2024 Time Trial will either be at the iconic Pistol Hill or a TBD course. The Pistol Hill course features 355 feet of climbing over a 3.5 mile course with a rolling terrain and a climb to the finish. The prologue will create the first leaders of the General Classification.

Racer tip: the TT can make or break your race! Make sure to recon the course and give yourself AMPLE time to get a solid warm up in.

Stage 2: Newly paved roads breathe new life into this classic course. A challenging 20.5 mile loop (33 km) with approximately 1000 feet of climbing, including a solid, sustained climb, rollers, flats and a rapid descent.

Racer tip: Winds can make or break this race. Expect calm (usually!) conditions in the morning and crosswinds on Mission in the afternoon. The climb from the last turn to the finish is deceptively long- don’t jump too early! Give your self plenty of time to drive from Tucson to Green Valley and get to sign in from the parking.

Stage 3: Different year, same course. The Oro Valley Circuit Race presented by Rutledge Dental. This course is on smooth roads with a few technical turns so you can test your speed and skills on this final day of racing.

Racer tip: Arrive with plenty of time to check out the course (may need to walk some sections) to check out the line you want to take through the last turn- it can be tricky at speed!
