The Troiano family along with the Heroes Cycling team and Speedway Wheelmen seek to raise awareness about the St. Mary's Child Center (SMCC). SMCC feeds, nurtures, educates and provides a loving environment for approximately 350 at-risk 3-5 year old, pre-school children annually. There are at least an additional 10,000 children in Indianapolis who could benefit from services provided by SMCC. We have partnered with the OVCX series to do this and provide a healthy family-oriented activity for the Ohio Valley region. This race is purely a fundraiser.

This year we are back to the original course with a tweak. There will be a moderate climb and moderate amounts of technical skills and importantly excellent spectator viewing.
New this year is the Krytonite sponsored Dr Troiano’s Trash Talking Throwdown-DTTT’s. Whoever good-naturedly challenges another racer and makes good on the challenge wins the prize. Please no profanity. These are usually high quality bike locks.
