Winter Short Track Series Race 1 @ Renaissance Park
Jan 20 @ 8:00 am – 2:00 pm

A staple in the local MTB scene, this long standing series has always been a great way to stay warm this winter, burn calories & well rub shoulder with some rad folk out there in the bicycle community! Looking for a team to roll with, grab some great discounted gear from industry sponsor’s? Ride for us, no matter your rank or skill level, we are here for everyone & can help you in training if need be.

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 events.

An oldie, but a goldie…
