Course Preview

This is a video preview of the course taken yesterday. The weather could change the course a little before the race on Sunday, but the course is just about as smooth as it gets. That's great news if you're leery about the gravel. If you love the tough conditions of Cone-Azalia, don't be too worried as the cross winds will still be your friend.

Registration is Open at USA Cycling

Registration for The 2012 Cone-Azalia Classic Road Race is now open on the USA Cycling Registration Site.  Early registration pricing is through April 15, so you don't want to put it off for long.  If you're planning on waiting for a weather report the week before the race before deciding to register, it's gonna cost you.  And, after all this is The Cone-Azalia Classic Road Race -- the weather is supposed to be miserable.

The weather has been mild all winter long, and by May you'll have some early spring races such as The Ann Arbor Spring Training Series, and perhaps even the 2012 Skills Clinic p/b AAVC and Two Wheel Tango under your belt.

So, get yourself registered and get out there and ride!

Hammer is Back

We are pleased to announce that Hammer Nutrition will once again be providing product support for the Cone Azalia Classic Road Race.

Hammer Nutrition has recognized the appeal of this unique event held each year along the picturesque roads of Milan, Michigan.

There's something special about suffering on the gravel roads this early in the season.  Suffering that can only mean that another road racing season has begun and that the Michigan Challenge Series is on.

If you've never competed in Cone, you really need to add this one to your palmares.  The bragging rites earned are legendary.

Plan on joining the Hammerfest on May 6, 2012.  You owe it to yourself
