The Grand Tour start/finish moved from Malibu to Port Hueneme in 2018. The new route begins at the Holiday Inn Express in Port Hueneme with a loop into Camarillo and back to Port Hueneme. The route (Highland and Lowland) then follows the original route to Moorpark, Ojai, Carpinteria, and back down the coast to finish in Port Hueneme at the Holiday Inn Express.
The Triple, Quad, and Double Double riders will pick up a new route slip when they reach the northern most point of the double course in Carpinteria. They will then head north to Gaviota and back for an additional 100 miles to make 300 miles at the finish in Port Hueneme. To get Double Double credit the Triple must be completed in 24 hours or less.
Quad and Double Double riders will then be given a final route slip for the last century to complete the 400 miles.
The Double Double credit will be given to those riders completing the Highland or Lowland Quad in 36 hours or less.
The Grand Tour Quad, Highland or Lowland, will remain a 24 hour event.
Clarification of the Double Double credit
The double double is the same route as the quad. The difference is you have 36 hours to finish. It begins with the Grand Tour Triple then the final hundred after that. You will get credit for the distance covered. Two hundred, three hundred, or four hundred miles.
(Triple, Quad, and Double Double riders will be given registration priority and guaranteed entry)
