The second section goes through downtown and the University of the Ozarks campus, then back out into the countryside that features rolling hills and finishes with a gradual and flat ride back into downtown.

Transition 2: The T2 area is a parking lot downtown. You will enter from the road after you go around the courthouse square and exit the parking lot to quickly hop on the trail for the run.

Run Course:

With over 15 hours of daylight we thought we should do something to burn it all. An intensely long road race that will challenge even the most hard-core riders with FOUR different route options to choose from. With multiple options, you pick your distance and come for the challenge. The race will be hosted at Bike Surgeon and their new bar/cafe Gears in downtown O’Fallon, IL. Each entrant gets not only a full day or racing but a great post-race meal and drink to finish the day of racing off right.

This self-supported race is being conducted in pure Cannonball style, on open roads with only your GPS for guidance rolling through neighboring towns as you make your way around the course. Start and Finish happens right here at Bike Surgeon with a full-on finish arch and digital timing clock playing back stop to your Strava times. Strava times you ask; yep, as with all Cannonball’s we ask that you track and post your ride to Strava to ensure course completion by each participant but not REQUIRED.

Podium ceremonies at Bike Surgeon for each race’s overall female and male winner as well as age groups for each distance. Lunch and your first beverage at our new in-store bar/café “Gears” is included for each entrant. Race day check in opens at 6:30AM with a 8AM start time. The café/bar and shop at Bike Surgeon will be open from 8am till the last rider finishes, so you can swing by before your race for last-minute needs and your race day support team will have a fun time hanging out waiting for you to finish and take your spot on the podiums.

Dirty 66 MTB Race at Fellows Lake

4 distances to choose from.

Come experience the fun, fast and flowy race that is the HEARTBREAKER.

This is the one must-do race of the year! The Heartbreaker course (at Creve Coeur’s Bootlegger Tail) is as fun as they come! However, this beginner friendly course demands your full attention; the trees and turns come quickly.

Keep your guard up or the HEARTBREAKER might just live up to it’s name.

The Heartbreaker MTB will be raced on Creve Coeur Park’s Bootlegger’s Trail

It is fast, tight, and will snag your handlebar to throw you down if not careful when threading the needle between trees. The course will run clockwise from the Start/Finish Area and is approx. 5 miles/lap.
