About the ride
The course is a 34 km / 21 mile time trial on an up-and-down course at Antelope Island State Park near Ogden Utah. Reaching heights of nearly 4,500 feet, the scenic route takes competitors across the east banks of Antelope Island along the Great Salt Lake’s Farmington Bay. The course begins with a 1.1 mile climb followed by a flat to rolling terrain before hitting a down-to-uphill turnaround. Pacing is key in this out-and-back course previously used for USA amateur, collegiate and master national championships as the climb awaits to provide that final sting in the legs before finish.Terrain - Rolling hills, some 5 mins or more long, moderate gradients. Loops are rides where the start and finish are at the same point, this lets you do multiple laps without getting weird distances in Strava etc. To ride multiple laps of a ride non-stop, go to Settings then select Laps from the Ride Modes menu.
Time trials are all about pacing. This course is no exception. If you're racing the actual event, remember this event is raced at an altitude that's higher than the biggest mountain in many countries, so overdoing it early on will come back to bite you very quickly. This is a great course for practicing a "negative split" where you come back from the turn faster than your pace on the way out
