The Hanover Time Trial early Saturday morning is an out and back 14.58 Mile flat and fast route. It has a few gradual rollers, but is otherwise smooth and straight forward. We want to attract new racers, and riders from other disciplines, including triathlon, mtn bike and gravel. The goal is to grow the numbers of women and new racers at this and all of our events.

The Hanover Dirt Circuit Saturday late afternoon is a ½ paved and ½ hard packed gravel dirt that is a 6 mile all right turns using the same finish line of the time trial and the Sunday road race.

The Hanover Road Race is a long 39 mile loop that has plenty of rollers. It is pavement all the way around. There is no respite from the wind on this course, so if it's windy it could play a huge role in how the race unfolds.  Stay safe and Race Hard!

We appreciate the support and for you attending the local, Colorado, grass roots bike races. Please invite friends and other teammates. This is a benefit fund raiser for the Kirk Hannah Park foundation which support the Hanover School scholarships. 

Thanks from the team at Sanitas Sports, GROOVE Auto, Criterium Bikes, The Colorado Sports Corp, and all the sponsors to make the event possible.
