The short course brings a unique and fun style of racing to the Charlotte area - short-track mountain bike racing on a 3/4 mile trail with banked turns. It's a cross between a criterium, BMX, cyclo-cross and single-track, super fast and spectator-friendly. Charlotte Sports Cycling and the Tarheel Trailblazers have worked hard to create a trail that's exciting for the race participants and spectators. Participants, based on category, will race 15 to 25 laps on the fast course. All of the events will be held at Renaissance Park. We plan to have food, an event photographer, and music at all of the event.
We will once again have race primes for ALL categories from our presenting sponsors of each race in the series.
TEAM COMPETITION: The Team competition will consist of team members across all categories earning points. The points will be derived from a new system called "Pack Points". Pack Points are based upon the number of people racing in your category, with a minimum of 10 points for the winner. The top six people from your team will be scored.
1st Place Team - $250 and Winners Trophy
2nd Place Team - $150
3rd Place Team - $100
