The Adventure Mountain Bike Race Series is part of the Loppet Foundation’s TRAIL KIDS year-round programming. The race series is included with the Loppet TRAIL KIDS Mountain Bike Program registration fee.
The series includes entry level races for beginner to advanced mountain bike riders. The goal of the series is to introduce youth to mountain bike racing as well as to prove some competition for more experienced riders. Youth who would rather not be timed can “tour” the race course at their own pace.
TRAIL KIDS participants will race in a mass start format with their team coaching groups and will be scheduled at a specific wave start time during their regular mountain bike program practice time. Races will be held at one time for each TRAIL KIDS mountain bike session on both Monday and Tuesday evenings correlating to the program nights. Youth will warm up for the race in their coaching groups and continue with their practice session following the race event.
Where: All Mountain Bike Adventure Series events start and finish behind The Trailhead building, and the course continues on parts of the Area 36 single track trails. Due to COVID-19 precautions, we are asking that parents do not spectate the race unless they are helping out as race volunteers. We will not be hosting race events at either the Elm Creek nor Lebanon Hills locations.
Race Course: Races will be held on Wirth Area 36 Trail system with a mass start in the valley behind the Trailhead. The course will be a variety of both grass and single track around 1-2 miles.
Cost: The three designated TRAIL KIDS races are included in the TRAIL KIDS session program fees. Registered youth are automatically signed up for the races that occur on the session dates they are signed up for.
Parent Volunteers: We rely on parents to help out with timing, course control, and race number handout. We will send you a link to help volunteer a few weeks before the race date.
