I never knew this was happening, but once again The Texas State Road Championship will take place on Fort Hood.  This year's race runs September 28 and 29.  At first I thought it was cars, like Mad Max. But no, it's a Bicycle Race.   The course is entirely in Fort Hood's west range area,  a 33-mile loop along paved roads filled with challenging climbs and descents.

An added danger is the free-range wild cattle that roam the course.  They can jump out at any time, well not jump,  but it seems like they just appear out of nowhere.

Fort Hood officials will close West Range Road, Elijah Road and Old Georgetown Road 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Sept. 28-29 for the race.

You do have to pay to take part, the promoter has promised to donate to Scott and White Hospital's Project Home Front and Gold Star Families.

There are all kinds of categories, for men and women, for the serious racers and those who just want to ride.

Onsite registration and results will be in the general vicinity of the start. Parking will be in the large crushed rock field on the Southwest corner of the intersection.

You can get all the information here.  Good Luck!
