What's this last-minute annoucement you say?
A little ski hill down the road was looking for some summer events- so we're going to make some happen.
Sprint Enduro Race Format:
It is a well established fact that if you put "Sprint" in front of any word, it makes it coooooler.
-3 intense ~two-minute mostly gravity powered stages on the mountain, a mixture of fresh'n'raw singletrack through glades, work road grunts and high-speed open slope cornering. You will pedal hard, I mean, if you want to win.
-Scot Trials (obstacle course timetrial)
-Dual Slalom under the lights.
Cumulative points from timed stages , Scot Trials and DS finishing will determine overall results.
Yes, you will have to pedal or push to the top of the hill. It's not that big. There isn't going to be a time cut.
The right bike for this event? Probably one of those fancy-pants full-suspension bikes with 120-160mm of travel.
I'll race my hardtail, because I'm HARDCORE.
If Sprint Enduro isn't for you- you can just enter the DS-
Dual Slalom Race Format:
Grass, gates, berms, jumps- head to head on two parallel courses.
Double elimination: one run on each course per competitor per round, a 3rd run breaks ties
Dual slalom is fun, fast and you can race it on any functioning bike with knobby tires and two brakes!
We'll have a bar and grill open at the bottom of the hill, a band or two.
Kids DS race will be $5
There's going to be a gnarly disc golf course toooooooooooo!
