Ghent-Wevelgem is Sunday! “Known for its climb and dicey descent of the Kemmelberg, which was previously the only difficulty in the race, the course features 16 bergs including the Kemmel and a slightly longer parcours. The early part of the race takes place near Belgium’s North Sea coast line, which means high winds often shatters the peloton into bits.

Gent-Wevelgem 2014 will be the 76th staging of the race, which is renowned in cycling circles as the spring classic that best suits the sprinters. This is underlined by its fast and flat finish, but riders must also not underestimate the unpredictable weather conditions or the climbs in the early and middle sections of the race.” via Cycling News

8a, Assault On Morrow Mountain. “The Assault on Morrow Mountain route is a loop with 3 rest stops along the route. Make sure you leave a little “gas in the tank” because the real ride begins after the mountain. The majority of the elevation is in the last 30 miles including a monster climb at mile 55. Registration is not required. All riders must sign a waiver at the start. No ride if below 40 degrees at the start, or the predicted chance of rain exceeds 50% before 11am.”
