When: Saturday April 26th 9 a.m. (Twilight Weekend)
Where:  Trail Creek Park (EACP)

This will be a ~1.6 mile course (clockwise) on The Green & Orange Crush loops.  

You get one lap so make it a good one. The top 50 who qualify in the Time Trials at Trail Creek will get to race in the 20K Mountain Bike Criterium downtown Saturday night (~6:45 p.m. after the Amateur Finals). The route will be the same as last year.  You will ride both loops and go up the Green/Orange connector and back down the clearing to avoid two-way traffic. The only difference is this time you get to take Josh's Jump when exiting the Orange Crush upper loop.  It'll be a blast! 

Please plan to be there early so that they can stay on schedule. Only check and cash will be accepted as payment on Saturday for on-site registration. Day of registration ends at 9 a.m. and racing starts at 9:30 a.m. They will likely be sending riders every two minutes.

Base Fee:  $25  ($10 less than last year)  

One Day USAC License:  $10 for a one day license if you don't already have a USAC license (same as last year).

No drop bars allowed. You can ride knobbies at the time trial and switch to slicks for the downtown race (1.5 inch minimum width). Otherwise, you must ride the same setup in both races.  If you do not already have a USAC license you will need to purchase one onsite on the day of the event.

Online reg closes @ Noon on Wednesday, April 23, 2014.  A $10 late fee will be assessed for day-of entries.

We will meet in the upper parking lot and work on the new downhill sections in Phase 2. Please bring gloves, a water bottle, and your bike.  We will ride afterwards.
This is a short easy trail that is fast, flowy and a lot of fun. A full lap of both loops and the connector is less than 2 miles so we do laps.  Meet at the gravel triangle on the Green Loop any time between 6:00 and 8:00 p.m.  If you don't see anyone at the triangle, wait a few minutes and you can catch us on the next lap.
