Our Goal of a Race Series
The series is founded on offering a race environment for all ability levels at an affordable price – $15.
Additionally we offer the opportunity for families to get out together or for a parent to get their children started in mountain biking by offering a FREE kids 12 & under race. If the venue can accommodate we put on 2 FREE kid races, one especially for the little tikes on peddle-less bikes & one for those capable the rip’n groms.
New for the 2014 season we are working with Summit Bike Club, who will be running the kids races.
Type of Race
The series style is what we have dubbed “Sprint Short-Course”.
In order to podium you gotta know how to pass, position and push’dem peddles.
Race divisions determine the course difficulty, on average the race should take around 1hr to complete. Usually Pro & Expert courses will be the same, consisting of around 12-15 miles, Sport around 7-9 miles and Beginner around 4-5 miles. Don’t let the distances fool you, remember it’s meant to be an all out push – vertical gain varies per venue.
Following every race is our famous “End’O’Race Raffle”. All participating riders get a raffle ticket for a chance to walk away with some amazing goods. Our sponsors take the race goods to the next level -
Corner Canyon, Draper City, Utah • Riverview Trail, Heber City, Utah • Round Valley, Park City, Utah • Deer Valley Resort, Park City, Utah • Snowbird Resort, up Little Cottonwood Canyon, Utah • Solitude Resort, up Big Cottonwood Canyon, Utah.
