The women’s cycling 5K hill climb race took place on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022 at Snow Canyon State Park in St. George, Utah.
The time trial-style race began at 9 a.m. The start order was by descending category — beginning with Division 4 and ending with Recumbent — and from oldest to youngest in age. All participants were age 50 or better.
Cyclists raced up Snow Canyon from the start line at the sand dunes to the finish line at the north park entrance. The course features uphill “rollies” of four to eight percent grades, and short sections ranging from 10% to 11% inclines.
The results are displayed by division, then age group.
