Menomonie Road Race
Saturday, June 15
Back for its 4th year, this race has become a classic and rider favorite.
Finishing with several circuits inside the city, the course will take in the challenging rural county roads outside the city that have been a favorite with cyclists of the upper Midwest for years. The men’s road race consists of 101 miles, marked by rolling hills and long climbs that are sure to impact the standings for the entire Nature Valley Grand Prix. Meanwhile, the women will cover a 76 mile course that follows the same beginning and ending roadways.
Menomonie is also playing to lots of fun family activities, including amateur criterium racing in the early afternoon while the Pros are out in the country. Tthe Menomonie Gran Fondo and Spectator Rides will offer supported rides for recreational and avid cyclists. And stick around after the races are over. Mainstreet Menomonie is hosting SummerDaze, a local family, food and craft festival downtown. Learn more about the activities and our host city here.
Fan Zone Sports Tip: the rolling hills will favor the more powerful riders over the sprinters and a small group could breakaway from the peloton and take the win
