Now in its second year with the Durty Bikes Gravel Series, the Hills or HighTor will be the second race of the 2020 calendar. Held in beautiful Naples, NY this course in 2019 was an instant classic. With tough climbs, a technical descent down Wood Hill and thrilling trail finish, HOHT pulls out all the stops.
The quality of the event should be no surprise as it's hosted by Race Director Andy August. As a long-time leader in WNY cycling, Andy is the former owner of Park Ave Bike Shop, a business he ran for 25 years. He has hosted dozens of MTB and Cyclocross races, including the S6 and the YMCA MTB series, as well as leads one of the country's best cyclocross development teams.
Andy is also no slouch on the bike as he is the current Pan Am CX Champ and earned a silver medal at CX Nationals in 2019!
