Pen Velo to host traditional NCNCA road season opener!

We at Pen Velo are wasting no time in getting the NCNCA road racing season underway with the 2019 San Bruno Mountain Hillclimb! PV will again be hosting this traditional NCNCA opener on New Year’s Day.

What better way to get a head start on burning off those excess holiday calories than with a short trip through the pain cave on January 1? The first group sets off at 10:00AM – not too early, so no excuses for you late-night revelers! But no worries, you’ll be home in time to watch the Rose Bowl.

Click HERE for online registration and HERE to view the official race flyer. Online registration closes at 11:59PM on Dec 29, 2018.

NOTE that all juniors race together, but boys and girls will be picked separately. So junior girls – please come and race with us!

Fancy yourself a climber? There’s an additional $200 in prize money for anyone who beats the current course record (14:20 for men, 16:34 for women) and an additional $50 for anyone who beats the course record for their category. 

Interested in volunteering? There are still a few volunteer positions open – click HERE to volunteer.

First time racer? This is a great event to get started in bike racing and can provide a good measure of your early-season fitness. How do you prepare for this race? Check out this video by current men’s course record holder Nathaniel English (https://englishendurance.com/), offering a lot of helpful pointers on preparing for this or any other hillclimb race.

See you on January 1!
