Countdown to the Tour:

The Gallatin Gateway Time Trial — a new venue for this year’s Tour de Bozeman – starts about 10 miles northwest of Bozeman in downtown Gallatin Gateway, off of Highway 191.  The course starts at the Gallatin Gateway School and heads due west for a kilometer, then turns left (south) on Gallatin South Road. After two sweeping corners (right, then left), the course makes its way south in a largely straight line until the turnaround 8 kilometers later. The time trial finishes about a mile before the start, before the hard right leading into Gallatin Gateway. The course is relatively flat, with 170 feet of climbing over 15K.

All categories do the same 15k course.
