Y'all have heard of the Great Western Loop, now for all you gravel grinders, we have the Great Southern Loop! Same start as GWL, riders will leave from Rancho San Diego for a neutral rollout on the pavement. Once on the dirt the race is on as riders slice and hook their way through Par 4 trail to get over to Miller Ranch Road. Neutral across Campo road, but not long after is the first KOM segment, which is a road climb up Miller Ranch road. After that, riders will start to circumnavigate Mt. Miguel by heading East to Proctor Valley for some delightful single track parallel to the road. Heading South will get riders to Otay Lakes, where after a bit of neutral road, more single track along the edge of the lake. At the most Southern point on the course, riders will start to double back along the Centennial Path, a speedy crushed gravel walking/biking path. One final neutralization coming into Mt. Miguel County Park before the last challenge of the Sweetwater Reservoir trails. These trails are fast but probably some of the most technical sections on route as well, with moments where you wished you brought the full sus. After getting back to Campo road, it's just one mile back to start where the last 200m are neutralized so you can cruise into the finish. *IMPORTANT NOTES* Water refill is available in Mt. Miguel County Park, it is neutral so it will not impact your time At mile 26.18 - there is a fork and the course heads right, head left at this section instead, you will thank me (Route needs to be 95% the same to count, so the slight deviation won't impact the upload). *PRIZES* There is a huge prize list from notable brands such as: Oveja Negra, Swiftwick and more! Prizes for top in your age group, as well as KOM + sprint overall / gender. Every PARA racer will receive a prize! There will be a raffle drawing for those that register AND complete the route. Prizes can be picked up at (Downtown/Banker's Hill) UpTown Bicycles starting Feb 1. DM any route questions to @taywar92 on IG
