This race will start in the historic Blues city of Bentonia, MS in front of the Blue Front Cafe. After a slow rollout across Hwy 49 you will hit gravel heading north towards the oil field cities of Anding and Tinsley. Making your way across bluffs along the eastern edge or Sartaria you will be challenged with punchy climbs and screaming downhills. The 100-mile racers will hit their aid station and head southwest towards Vicksburg on lightly traveled country roads before turning north back to the aid station on a mix of dirt and paved roads. The same aid station will be used by the 50-mile racers and both will race towards the finish on some of the best gravel the area has to offer.
