Following a dip into Marine Creek Lake, competitors will enter the city of Azle on Wells Burnett Road after crossing the spillway dam on Eagle Mountain Lake.
Bikes will travel northwest on Southeast Parkway (Hwy. 199 service road) and onto Boyd Court before heading north on Boyd Road/FM 730 North toward Boyd.
