Winter Short Track Series dates posted

This is one of the best events that I have done. If you have not done it you owe it to yourself to try.

2010 Winter Short Track Mountain Bike Series

For 2010, Charlotte Sports Cycling is again teaming up with the Dirt Divas to host the always exciting Winter Short Track Race Series at Renaissance Park. The winter race series is set to kick off SUNDAY, January 17. The short course brings a unique style of racing to the Charlotte area.....short-track mountain bike racing on a .8 of a mile trail with bank turns. It's a cross between a criterium, BMX, cyclo-cross and single-track, super fast and very 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.

We will once again hold the every popular TEAM COMPETITION. The Team competition will consist of team members across all categories earning points. The points will be derived from a 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. Get your team jerseys ready as the Team Competition was a huge hit in the 2009 series.

1st Place Team - $250 and a Sweet Winners Trophy
2nd Place Team - $150
3rd Place Team - $100

Dates for the series will be Sundays: January 17, 24 & 31 and February 7
The season finale will be held on Saturday, February 13 with awards party to follow.
The dates are pending Meck County Parks and Recreation approval.

More details will be posted soon.
