Building off of last year’s Southwest Virginia Cycling Challenge we have improved and grown cycling in Southwest Virginia to a bigger and better series in 2020.

Tour de Crackers Neck (May 23), The Coal Country Classic (June 13), Gap to Gap (July 18), Benges Revenge (September 12), and Tour de Sleepy Hollow (Oct 3). Cash prizes will be awarded to the top 3 in Mens and Womens divisions. Scoring is based on your finish position (1 point for first, 2 points for second, etc.). If you miss one event no problem, we will allow one drop and the top prize will go to the person with the lowest score.
