Mike Adams and Heidie Moser of Franklin County will both be going for their fourth LaToJa Classic bicycle race this weekend. They, with over 1,000 other cyclists from across the country and other nations, will attempt to cycle the entire distance from Logan to Jackson, a 206-mile odyssey. Moser has two half and one full LaToJa’s under her belt while Adams has three full races to Jackson. They both have sponsors and have been working out with a Logan bicycle club.

This year marks the 30th Annual LoToJa Classic.

Moser said, “The first year I just wanted to finish it, this year I am going for a good time.”

The mother of three children said she has been training hard and feels like the training will help her as she prepares for the popular Cache Valley one-day cycling road race again.

Heidie Moser and Mike Adams, both of Franklin County, stopped in Smithfield on Friday for a photograph. Both will ride in their fourth LaToJa Classic bicycle race this Saturday.

After starting some 25 different cyclists in groups of 25 racers each, participants will come into Preston along Highway 91, then ride north on State Street, turn east at the Burger King/ Well-come Mart at the “y” junction at 800 North State, then on to Riverdale. From Riverdale, the race will then proceed east on State HWY 36 through Strawberry and Emigration canyons to U.S. 89 Junction in Montpelier. The course continues to follow U.S. 89 to the Wyoming border, then north to Jackson.
