Week 8 Course Map

Here's the course map for week 8!
We will be starting Counter Clockwise like we did on week two with a faux lap down the fire road, but will meet up with the course over by Hot Lap. We will then take a turn by the Skills Course and go through the Glades to get to the Start/ Finish line. From there, we will cross over to the other side of the Glades and take a hairpin corner to climb up to Espresso. Then we will descend down Gear Down and take another hairpin corner to merge onto Backtrack. Finally, we will turn onto Grasshopper to finish up the loop.
The Kid's Race will be held on Hot Lap from the start of the climb all the way to the faux lap merge. (See Below for Details)
Looking forward to another great Short Track Race!

Week 7 Race Course

Here's the course map for week 7!
We will start out going clockwise around the course and following the fire road until we get to Hot Lap. From there we will go up and over the bridge to Backtrack. We will then take a sharp hairpin corner up Gear Down to Mesa Flow and descend down Corkscrew. From there, we will follow the road all the way to the Glades where we will return to the Start/Finish area.
The Kid's race will cutoff the upper track by going on Dirt 101 and will be two laps.
In terms of weather and trail status, Valmont was able to open up the entire park after yesterday's storm and we will be watching the weather for tomorrow. See ya out there!

Week 5 Course; Silent Auction Continuing

We hope everyone enjoyed the week off for the 4th of July! Here's the map for this week's race.
We will be starting like we normally do by the Pavilion and going over the bridge to merge left to Dirt 101. We will hook around to continue on Grasshopper, but then turn left to merge onto Backtrack and climb up Mid Mesa. We will then go through Mesa Flow, descend down Corkscrew, and turn right down Start/Finish. We then go across the bridge to Dirt 101 again and work around back to the start. Should be a fun one this week!

Also, we will be continuing the silent auction this week for the three signed Allen Lim cookbooks provided by Skratch Labs! The silent auction sheets will be up near registration so make sure to put in a bid. This is a great way to support our sponsors and CU Cycling Short Track as a whole! We will be announcing winners right after the Men's B race so make sure to stick around if you participated in the auction.
See everyone tomorrow at 4:30pm!
