We look forward to seeing all of you at the race HQ at LaQuinta in Brookshire, Texas.
Bessies Creek ultra racing exists for the sole purpose of giving amateur racers the chance to test themselves around a 14.2 mile road circuit. We will continue to support Bessies Creek as long as sufficient interest exists amongst cyclists wanting to challenge themselves by riding as far as they can within a given time.
It is a relatively flat route with fairly light traffic and has numerous facilities such as convenience stores and fast food outlets in the immediate neighborhood of the race HQ. Having the race staged at a hotel allows racers to stay next to the starting line if desired and there is ample space for racers to set out their personal pit-stops.
Every 14.2 miles racers return to the starting line next to the timing stations and can either relax there or blast through as you eat up the miles. It is your option. Take a look at the current records set over the past 9 years to see who has been before. You race against yourself and the clock, it is your time to prove yourself and attempt to win outright or your age group or just to see how many miles you can clock.
Every kind of human powered wheeled machine is allowed in its own category, it is your race, and you race against yourself – although the results will show where you come in the standings of each bike category and in each race and, if you set a new record, it will stand until some other racer exceeds it.
Many racers come year after year and many see each other at one of the many such events around the country. Many racers just join us for a one time shot – all are welcome. Camaraderie and friendly competition mark Bessies Creek races.
