Cone-Azalia Classic

**Cone-Azalia Class Gravel Road Race

The Cone-Azalia Classic gravel road race is held on rough and narrow farm roads – fitting for a Spring classic. A four-corner dirt road circuit on the farm roads of Monroe County!   About 90% of the course is gravel so be prepared for variable conditions.  This is not a race to bring your deep dish carbon wheels to – there are rocks, railroad crossings, and wind!

The Cone-Azalia Classic gravel road race has a new format this year. We now offer two distances – a 54 mile starting at 10:00AM and a 27 mile starting at 1:00PM.  Also new this year – USA Cycling licenses are optional.  If you have a USA Cycling license you get a call-up based on your license category.  If not, you’re free to race with the open waves/age groups.
