The eighth annual Tour of Corsicana will be held on March 23rd & 24th in partnership with the Corsicana Chamber of Commerce. Racing starts Saturday morning with a five mile individual time trial. Racers are allowed to use all available USAC sanctioned speed weaponry, including aero bars, in their battle against the clock. The course is point to point with relatively flat terrain.
Stage two will be a battle in the streets of downtown Corsicana. The one mile, eight corner criterium course is renowned for its historic brick streets. A victory on Beaton street is no small achievement. The course is extremely spectator friendly with a planned beer garden and local vendors offering plenty of dining and shopping opportunities for all. Racing downtown will start at 3:30 and wrap up under the lights around 10:30 pm.
Sunday is the queen stage of the Tour of Corsicana. Racers will be treated to a grueling 22 mile loop across the Blackland prairies southwest of Corsicana. As racers of the 2013 Tour of Corsicana can attest, weather can play a factor in how the race unfolds. Be ready for strong winds and broken spirits. Depending on the class, racers will complete 22 to 88 miles.
We will be offering chip timing in each stage for all categories. This will allow for more exact results delivered more quickly to racers.
We are also excited to bring back the gravel grinder on Sunday for those adventurous souls who want to get out there and get dirty! Learn more about the Gravel grinder here!
Those who are victorious at the Tour of Corsicana will be awarded rightfully. As with years past, racers will be competing for custom leaders jerseys, cash and the chance to take home the much coveted brick trophies. Come join us for a weekend of epic bike racing and good times!
