From the Promoter:
The Cone-Azalia Classic is held on rough and narrow farm roads – fitting for a Spring classic. About 90% of the course is gravel so be prepared for variable conditions. This is not a race to bring your deep dish carbon wheels to – there are rocks, railroad crossings and wind!
The Cone-Azalia Classic gravel road race has a new format this year. We now offer two distances – a 54 mile race starting at 10:00am and a 27 mile starting at 1:00am. Also new this year – USA Cycling licenses are optional. If you have a USA Cycling license you get a call-up based on your license category. If not, you’re free to race with the open waves / age groups.
