The Big Mountain Road Hill Climb


This year instead of giving an award for the time trial’s fastest man and fastest woman, we’re going to mix it up and do something that everyone has a shot at winning. Before you begin the hill climb portion of the 2011 Great Northern Stage Race please give the start line timing person your best estimate for how long it will take you to reach the Village. The male racer and female racer that picks their time by the closest margin will each receive $100 in cash!! In the event of more than one guess with the same winning margin, the names will be entered into a drawing and one winner selected at random.

Remember the Big Mountain Road hill climb is 4.85 miles long and averages 6.2% grade (or a Category 2 climb according to Map-my-ride). That’s not quite as steep as the HC climb up Mt. Baldy in last week’s Tour of California, but challenging none-the-less.

These cash prizes are being provided by our good friends at Glacier Restaurant Group . Please visit Ciao Mambo, Latitude 48, The Craggy Range, or Mckenzie River Pizza Company while you are in Whitefish and look for them at the Crit and Hill Climb stages.
