Depending on your Category for the road race, you'll battle your peers in either a 43 or a 70 mile, strenuous road race (good roads), but don't let the extreme climbing, steep curves, and stiff competition impede your enjoyment of the stunning Bridger-Bangtail and Shields Valley landscapes.

Time Trail, Saturday evening, July 7, 6:00pm, after the road race, bike racers will push themselves to the limit on the TdB's new 15k time trial course, which begins in the town of Gallatin Gateway, about 10 miles southwest of Bozeman, and continues south, on a flat road with little traffic, along the scenic Gallatin River, towards the mouth of Gallatin Canyon.

Sunday, July 8, 9:00am enjoy the Beall Park Criterium, revolving around historic Beall Park, which is just north of Downtown Bozeman's Main Street. Beall Park's circuit has great pavement, fast corners, and will allow for easy public viewing, so please come out for some exciting bike racing.

After Sunday's Criterium ends, awards for all events will be held at the Beall Center, 415 N. Bozeman Avenue.
