A Texas Cup Race PERMIT NO. 2015-555

Who says there are no mountains in Texas? Come to Hammerfest and find out for yourself! Race the “Texas Alps” one of the most challenging courses in the Southwest. Stage one will start the climbing with a short, intense road stage. There are 10 miles to warm up, THEN 6 miles of real climbing (up to 17% grades) – enjoy!!! We will start in Fort Davis, Texas, on Hwy 118 and climb our way to the top of Mt. Locke – location of McDonald Observatory. Some categories will finish at the bottom of the observatory climb. Stage two will also begin in Ft. Davis on Saturday Afternoon – an 18 mile road race out Hwy 166 on fast, “flat”, straight roads, finishing at Crow’s Nest. Stage three on Sunday morning, will also begin in Ft. Davis and wind through the mountains of the Scenic Loop back to town. The altitude goes from 5000′ to over 6500′ and climbs are steep and numerous. All routes will have neutral starts out of town and will finish in town in front of the Limpia Hotel. The 49-mile route will go from Fort Davis to Madera Canyon and back (a lot of climbing). The 33-mile race will go from Fort Davis to McDonald Observatory Visitor Center and back. All stages will begin in front of the Limpia Hotel.
