Together, the UNL Cycling Club and Champion Systems is bringing back the Tour de Husker for 2018.
The weekend will include a Road Race and an individual Time Trial at Branched Oak Lake and a Criterium Race at Pioneers Park.
Road Race & Time Trial - Saturday, March 17, 2018 - Branched Oak Lake
Branched Oak Lake is the venue for Saturday’s road race and time trial. The 11.2-mile loop starts at Lieber’s Point and circles Branched Oak Lake, which is the largest flood control reservoir in the Salt Creek basin. The rolling circuit features two sustained hills on the western half and a challenging eastern stretch, which crosses the Branched Oak Lake dam. The finish stretch is a complete road enclosure and slightly downhill.
Pinewood Bowl Criterium - Sunday, March 18, 2018
The classic Pioneers Park course closes out the Tour de Husker weekend with a healthy mix of climbs, fast descents and a beautiful backdrop at Lincoln’s oldest public park. Course is approximately 1 mile.
