In this short 2 mile race of truth you will race individually against the clock. Not only will you test yourself, but you can challenge your friends, go head to head against the Mayor, Stanford’s Vice Provost and other local celebrities and afterwards watch as the world’s best pros challenge your time.

- Official UCI timing and officiating
- Official prologue course closed just for you
- Your name announced to the roaring crowds
- Professional photography of you leaving the start house
