Season four’s prologue will take place in Southwest FL at Caloosahatchee Regional Park in Alva, FL near Ft. Myers.
Trails at CRP are composed of fast, flat open areas that are intermixed with areas that cut through the natural canopy providing a very scenic ride. There are plenty of small but steep drops and climbs to keep things interesting and we know this will be a season favorite!
Student-athletes will start off in an open field and work their way towards single-track that is full of ups and downs in an open area that is perfect for all of our spectators. The trail then continues into the canopy and twists and turns along a ridge until eventually returning into an open field towards the finish line.
What is a FICL Prologue… a preliminary time trial held before a race series to establish staging and category placement. This will be a 1 lap race with individual awards for every category and 50 bonus points awarded for the season total points for all participants in the high school categories. Riders will stage with their assigned categories (8th boys, 7th boys, etc.) starting 15 minutes before their wave start time. Riders will begin at 15 second intervals and go out on this fun, fast course!
