This first annual event will be held in the beautiful and iconic city of Malibu, in Southern California February 21-23, 2014.
The format of our event is the first of it’s kind. Our two-day event traverses a balanced mix of rolling terrain and epic climbs. Participants will have the opportunity to ride in an Omnium format where two days’ rides are for cumulative time or ride either Saturday or Sunday as a single day’s event. This format is designed to attract a broad range of cyclists from around North America and is timed to take advantage of our consistently good weather compared to early spring in much colder areas.
We are working with many local businesses to promote the cycling lifestyle of Southern California. The weekend begins with a 141km mass start event on Saturday with a start and finish at the scenic Malibu Golf Course, nestled deep in the Santa Monica Mountains. A light post-ride reception, including local craft beers and wines will be held on property. That evening all participants and their families are invited to a wine and cheese reception at the Stonehaus in Westlake Village to prepare for the following day’s Race of Truth. Sunday’s 20km time trial will head due north on the world-famous Pacific Coast Highway, leaving the newly remodeled Trancus Market. A family picnic on the grassy lawn of Trancus Market, hosted by the Alessi Family, will reveal the riders’ accomplishments rounding out the afternoon. Throughout both Saturday and Sunday family activities will be planned at the ride starts to introduce the sport of cycling to anyone young at heart but not otherwise participating in the days’ rides.
