The Badfish Creek 20K/40K Time Trial is one of the safest, most interesting and challenging bike races in Wisconsin. It is a time trial in which bikers start at one minute intervals, are not allowed to draft or ride in groups. The Time Trial is a race between the biker and the clock. Awards are based on Elapsed Time.
Bikers leave from the intersection of Center and Old Stone at one minute intervals. Riders go north on Old Stone, east on Danks, south on Old Stage and return to the starting line by going north on Old Stone. Riders compete in Open and Age Group categories. Most riders do two loops although under 18 and over 70 do one loop unless they want to do a second loop to also compete in one of the Open Divisions.
The first race/time trial starting at 9am is the Wisconsin Cycling Association State Championship. The second race/time trial is for MATTS bikers, Triathletes, WiSport and anyone else. The first third is flat, the remainder is rolling. The roads are well maintained.
The Badfish Creek Time Trial course is nestled in the Rutland township between Stoughton, Oregon and Evansville. Enjoy this section of the Driftless Region: DO THE FISH!
