PrologueIn France they call the Time Trial the ?Race of Truth.? It?s the cyclist?s physical strength, mental focus and their will to push to their limits against the resistance of the wind and road in a personal battle with time. In January 2004, pancreatic cancer pushed Rick to his limit and took the last of his physical strength but never touched his will to live each day to its fullest. He was far more than a fellow cyclist. General Race InformationThe 12.5 mile race of truth starts and ends at the Beach #1 parking lot, the entrance of beautiful Presque Isle State Park. The first rider leaves at 8:00 am with 15 second intervals between riders. Traffic will be marshaled during the race for safety but the road is NOT closed.
