While the course has changed a bit since it first came to this area, Race Across America is headed back here in 2013.

The annual coast-to-coast bicycle race first came to this area in 2003, using Marthasville as a time station.

The course has changed a little bit and Washington’s Revolution Cycles (Bedford Center) will be serving as Time Station No. 34 once again this year.

Solo men and women left the starting line at Oceanside, Calif., Tuesday.

All teams will depart the start line Saturday.

The race concludes in Annapolis, Md.

As in the past, riders will move at their own pace along the route. There are no time trials as in the Tour de France or the old Tour of Missouri, so there is no pack racing. Teams will come through one at a time.

Revolution Cycles, Time Station No. 34, is located between the Jefferson City and the Mississippi River stations.

Riders are expected through the local time stations from starting next Monday. The last riders are expected next Friday..

Teams will enter this area via Highway 94 from Jefferson City eastbound. The race turns south on Highway 19, crossing the Missouri River at Hermann, before continuing east on Highway 100 through New Haven and Washington.

Teams will turn north on Highway 47, crossing the Missouri River again. The race turns right onto Highway 94 near Dutzow and then stays straight on Highway TT.

Teams turn left on Highway T before turning right on Highway D past Lake Sherwood. They would then turn north on Highway Z in New Melle and move north to Wentzville.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution during the race along race routes. Riders are supposed to have team vehicles behind them, but due to the nature of the event, it’s possible that there could be times where the team vehicles have moved ahead or behind to refuel or restock provisions.

For more information on Race Across America, please see the official site, www.raceacrossamerica.org.

The event also can be followed on Facebook at Race Across America and on Twitter at @RAAMRaces or #RAAM2013.
