St. Paul Riverfront Time Trial
Wednesday Morning, June 12
The time trial is often called “the race of truth”. There will be no hiding in the pack or drafting behind teammates as each rider must test themselves against the course alone.
This will be a no-frills slug fest. Riders will fly up and down East River Road on a challenging course that's punctuated by rolling climbs.
Fan Zone Sports Tip: Although the riders will complete well over 200 miles in the Nature Valley Grand Prix, this 7.7 mile race will likely be decisive. Losing just a minute in this time trial could cost a contender five places in the final standings.
