Richmond 2015 at Kings Dominion: Parts of Kings Dominion will be open Wednesday, September 23rd, from 10am - 4pm with cyclist competing from 1 - 3:35pm, for the Men’s Elite Individual Time Trial. The park will be opened for free with limited rides and attractions open, the Eiffel Tower, Dominator, Berserker, Shops and Dining on International Street. Racers will then speed past Meadow Event Park, home to the State Fair of Virginia and birthplace of thoroughbred racing legend Secretariat. Racers will head south on long, open straights past the Hanover County Courthouse, the third oldest courthouse still in use in the U.S. and dating back to about 1740. Long hills on Brook and Wilkinson roads bring the racers back into the city through Virginia Union University before turning into downtown.
Nearly half the turns of the entire route fall within the closing kilometers, the second to last of which is onto the 300-meter-long climb up Governor Street. At the top, riders turn left and finally face a false flat 680 meters to the finish.
