CourseEdit

The riders began their race 20 miles north of Richmond at Kings Dominion, Virginia's premier amusement park in Hanover County. Racers then went past Meadow Event Park, home to the State Fair of Virginia and birthplace of thoroughbred racing legend Secretariat. Racers headed south on long, open straights past the Hanover County Courthouse, the third oldest courthouse still in use in the U.S. and dating back to about 1740. Long hills on Brook and Wilkinson roads brought the racers back into the city through Virginia Union University before turning into downtown. Nearly half the turns of the entire route fell within the closing kilometers, the second to last of which was to ascend 300 meters (980 feet) on Governor Street. At the top, the riders had to take a sharp left turn onto the false-flat finishing straight, 680 meters (2,230 feet) to the finish.[4]
