Stage 3 – The Queen’s Stage
Start Time in Crouch: 12:00pm
Estimated Finish Time in Idaho City: 3:00pm
The hills will be alive with serious climbing and team race strategy on the only alpine stage of the 2012 Exergy Tour. We recommend you make the easy drive to Crouch for the late morning community breakfast, enjoy the opening ceremony and then head out ahead of the teams to find a spot on the killer climbs above Lowman. Witness first hand the agonizing action as the ladies race to the top before they descend the harrowing miles to the finish. Bring your noisemakers, cowbells and costumes, and cheer them on as they crest the summit, then follow them down to join in the festivities at the Expo and Finish Festival in Idaho City!
Either of the QOM locations, on top of Beaver Creek Summit or Mores Creek Summit will be Stage 3 highlights and could decide the winner of the whole Tour. See the drama play out in slow motion on these epic climbs.
Distance: 57.8 miles / 93.0 km
