There will be over $10,000 in cash prizes and the event is sanctioned and recognized by the Tennessee Bicycle Racing Association.Race day packet pick-up will be near the start/ finish line at Victory Free Will Baptist Church located at 1675 Old Harrison Ferry Road from 6 a.m. to 30 minutes prior to the category race time.According to race information, the road race, beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday morning, will again travel up Baker Mountain Road in what is a grueling 55-mile loop.The pro category 1 and 2 will travel the course twice in a demanding 110-mile competition. All others, categories 3-4-5, women, master and juniors (15-18), will do the main loop of 55 miles once.
