The McClellan course is a challenging 22-mile loop, with three substantial climbs on each long loop. The racers will battle over Bains Gap, with an average gradient of 10 percent along a one-mile climb that pitches up to 17 percent. The Pro Men will be tasked with a 91-mile distance and the women with 69 miles.
“The new McClellan Road Race has a beautiful route with hard climbs, which will be challenging in this early-season race,” Andreu said. “The combination of back-to-back racing days will be a great test for the cyclists to see who will start the 2016 calendar at the top of the rankings.”
