Where to Watch
The Rochester Road Race covers a lot of ground, and it's impossible to know in advance where the decisive attack that shapes the outcome of the race will occur. It might happen in the climbs of Dansville and Nunda, or the field might stay together until the finishing circuit where the contenders and their teams will be trying to position themselves for a thrilling sprint at the finish line.
