The Mountaineer Criterium begins on Rivers Street, the main thoroughfare of Appalachian State University. Racers will head towards Raley Parking lot before a tight hairpin 180 turn sends them back towards Depot Street and team Sponsor Magic Cycles. Two more left turns follow before racers re-enter Rivers Street, which widens to 2 lanes in each direction for a fantastic false flat downhill sprint finish. With only 33 feet of elevation gain per lap, this race will be won by the racer who can put down the most power.
