#PhilBikes100: Scouting the Big Dam Bridge 100 Course


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - With less than a week to go until the Big Dam Bridge 100, THV 11's Phil Buck went out Monday and drove the entire 100-mile course for the ride. When he left he was already nervous, when he returned he was terrified from what he saw.

"The overall elevation change is about identical, just a couple hundred feet difference. It's just that it's a little bit more condensed this year into 2 climbs versus a whole bunch of little climbs," said Big Dam Bridge 100 event director Fred Phillips. "It's a winding climb for the 100-mile road but the last ¾ or mile of getting up to the top of Wye [Mountain] and going over towards Little Italy, that one you got to press the pedals just a little bit."
