The Toad Suck does one Lap of the 40 K Bike Course Most roads paved within the last few years, smooth and fast. The Course contains a approximately 1250 feet of climbing. Remember we're in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Course is very doable on Tri Bike. If your strong rider a Disc Wheel shouldn't be a problem. Although I personally would use a deep Dish or standard spoke wheel.
