Stage 6 starts at Meeks Park in Blairsville at 11:00am and winds through Union County, coming back around the square close to 1:00pm, then makes its way to Brasstown Bald for the finish somewhere around 3:00pm.

Folks wanting to see the big finish should park on GA 180 (all wheels off the pavement) and catch a shuttle to the top ($5 round trip).

The riders are well away on Stage 6 now and watching all the bikes go by is certainly impressive. What may be as equally impressive is the realization of just how many support vehicles it takes to run an event like this. From law enforcement, to tour officials and staff, to team buses, cars, motorcycles, and bikers - it's like a mobile city making its way through.

I'm downtown still waiting for the bikers to make their way back to town - the weather is great, hot even. I'm going wander around and enjoy the downtown area until then.

The racers have made their way around the Square and are south of Blairsville heading past Track Rock Rd now.

If you have a scanner, add 460.6250 and 450.9000 to your scanning list to listen to the race status and track their current location.
