The format will be an out and back style race with teams of 4 cyclists.
Each team is required to have a MINIMUM of:
-1 Female cyclist (Road or fixed, your choice)
-1 Fixed gear Brakeless cyclist

YOU MAY HAVE A TEAM OF ALL GIRLS, AND YOU MAY HAVE A TEAM BE ALL FIXED, JUST MEET THE MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS!

Heres how it will all go down.

CHECKPOINT 1: Hadley St hill climb.
This is the only checkpoint when all teams will start with their riders side by side at the start line. At our GO you will race from central park to the top of Hadley st (maps will be provided). There you will collect a checkpoint token, and hustle your ass back to central park to allow your next team mates to leave for their checkpoint.

CHECKPOINT 2.1 : Frumentos Deli (FEMALE ONLY)
The Frumentos deli checkpoint will be the girls time to shine. Your teams female rider will leave central park and take beverly blvd(maps will be provided) to frumentos in montebello to collect her checkpoint token, then hustle back to central park. 
(SPECIAL NOTE: YOUR NEXT RIDER WILL NOT BE CLEARED TO LEAVE CENTRAL PARK UNTIL BOTH THE FRUMENTOS CHECKPOINT TOKEN AND THE THRONE CYCLES CO TOKEN ARE RETURNED TO CENTRAL PARK..read on)

CHECKPOINT 2.2: Throne Cycles Co.
The rider leaving central park for the throne checkpoint will leave at the same time as the female rider (she will be going to frumentos). Both riders will be taking beverly blvd for a time which gives you the opportunity to use team work for a few miles before your paths split. Once you arrive to throne (again maps will be provided) collect your token and head back to central park. 
(SPECIAL NOTE: YOUR NEXT RIDER WILL NOT BE CLEARED TO LEAVE CENTRAL PARK UNTIL BOTH THE THRONE CYCLES TOKEN, AND FRUMENTOS TOKEN ARE RETURNED TO CENTRAL PARK)

CHECKPOINT 3: TURNBULL CANYON (FIXED GEAR BRAKELESS)
This ones going to hurt.
once BOTH the FRUMENTOS TOKEN AND THRONE TOKEN are safely back to central park you will drill your way to the frontside of turnbull canyon where you will climb up to skyline dr (maps will be provided) to pick up your token, then turn around and begin the technical descent back the way you came to Central park.

CHECKPOINT 4: Whittier Cyclery (TEAM CHECKPOINT)
This is the last checkpoint, the struggle will be very real. 
Once your brakeless fixed gear rider is back from turnbull YOUR WHOLE TEAM will get to work together to get to the whittier cyclery (1 map will be provided to your team), get your token (1 token per team), and get back to central park for the win. YOUR TEAM WILL NOT BE DECLARED FINISHED UNTIL ALL 4 TEAM MEMBERS HAVE MADE IT BACK!

Podiums, and prizes will be presented immediately after the race.
