With over 15 hours of daylight we thought we should do something to burn it all. An intensely long road race that will challenge even the most hard-core riders with FOUR different route distance options to choose from. With multiple route options, you pick your distance and come for the challenge. The race will be hosted at Bike Surgeon and their new bar/cafe Gears in downtown O’Fallon, IL. Each entrant gets not only a full day or racing but a great post-race meal and drink to finish the day of racing off right.
This self-supported race is being conducted in pure Cannonball style, on open roads with only your GPS for guidance rolling through neighboring towns as you make your way around the course. Start and Finish happens right here at Bike Surgeon with a full-on finish arch and digital timing clock playing back stop to your Strava times. Strava times you ask; yep, as with all Cannonball’s we ask that you track and post your ride to Strava to ensure course completion by each participant.
Podium ceremonies at Bike Surgeon for each race’s overall female and male winner as well as age groups for each distance. Lunch and your first beverage at our new in-store bar/café “Gears” is included for each entrant.Race day check in opens at 7AM with a 8AM start time. The café/bar and shop at Bike Surgeon will be open from 8am till the last rider finishes, so you can swing by before your race for last-minute needs and your race day support team will have a fun time hanging out waiting for you to finish and take your spot on the podiums.
