The 28th La Vuelta de Bisbee gets rolling beginning Friday in the high desert country of southeastern Arizona.
Racing in the three-day, four-stage race begins Friday, April 28, with the Mule Pass Time Trial, an uphill charge through the heart of Old Bisbee that gains 837 vertical feet in 2.8 miles. Malcolm Elliott set the elite men’s record of 9:18 in 1993; Leslee Schenk posted the elite women’s best time of 10:33 in 1987.
Saturday, April 29, is a double stage day. The Sulphur Springs Road Race (79.3 miles for elite men, 45.8 miles for elite women) tours the rolling rural roads east of Bisbee. The afternoon’s 8.3-mile, out-and-back Warren Time Trial takes racers south to the border with Mexico, starting at Vista Park and finishing in front of Bisbee City Hall.
La Vuelta concludes Sunday, April 30, with the Tombstone Road Race (87.2 miles for men, 58.4 miles for women). The course begins in Old Bisbee and winds through the San Pedro River Valley and Tombstone, concluding with a five-mile, 6 percent climb.
