July 2/04 7:59 am - Conestoga Road Race: Schedule and Information

Posted by Editoress on 07/2/04

Conestoga Road Race St. Clements, Ontario - Sunday July 4, 2004 is pleased to present the first annual Conestoga Road Race on Sunday July 4, 2004 at St. Clements, Ontario, just north of Waterloo. This brand new race course follows a rolling 9.6 km 3-corner circuit featuring two climbs per lap including the (in)famous Hawkesville Hill ascent. The final series of climbs over the last 4 km will make for an exciting finish for both riders and spectators.

This course is an exceptionally challenging and popular circuit with local cyclists for both training and touring. With an extra-wide paved shoulder all the way up both sides of the climb and continuing over a stretch of one km past the peak and around the wide sweeping curve, the course has plenty of room in the most critical areas. There is even a paved shoulder on the outside of the final corner leading into a tough 300m climb to the finish. The schedule includes a full slate of categories with race distances based on the Ontario Cup standard. Registration will take place at St. Clements Arena and includes access to change rooms and showers along with a concession stand and plenty of parking.
