From the promoter:

February 17th, Sauget, Illinois, 73 Miles, 1,100’ climbing.

Downtown St. Louis Airport Fire Station Parking Lot North End, 9AM Race Start

This course will have a neutral start from the airport riding ~4 miles south with vehicle support/coverage riding past the Greater St. Louis Air and Space Museum, the Jarrot Mansion and the Emeth Lodge before passing over Dead Creek and starting the race on the Mississippi Levee’s. The Levee’s will take us south along the Mississippi turning slightly east before rolling over 255 and descending thru the Columbia bottoms south to Fountain Creek. The route then takes us East and up into the bluffs climbing to new Valmeyer (mile 35, ½ way) where the rest area of the adventure rider exists, a convenience store! From there the route rolls West and South getting back on the levee at Harrisonville and starting the ride back North. At mile 45 you are back on the route that brought you South and you will follow it all the way back to the finish at the Airport.
