Race is one full 12-mile lap of the undulating Cedar Hill State Park Mountain Bike Trail. Qualification-based waves offering up to 20 different SpeedWaves for riders and racers of all ability! Waves are arranged so as to form racing groups of about 10-15 riders each. Our goal is to match you with your very closest competition across “categories.” Qualify for your wave based on any of the following: A. performance in any 2017 off road (Mountain. or ‘Cross) race. B. performance in pre-2018 SpeedWaves events or Cedar Hill State Park events. C. USAC MTB or CX category and class (age group) MTB is Pre-Reg ONLY.
FIELD SIZES: Min. field size per start wave: 5. Max field size per start wave: 20. Promoter may combine fields to meet field mins. Min. MTB entries req’d for full payout is 99 race entries: 50-98 entries = at most a reduction of 50% of full payout (i.e. we’ll pay at least 50% of full payout); 1-49 entries = at most a reduction of 70% of full payout (i.e. we’ll pay at least 30% of full payout).
Awards at MTB start/finish at 9:15a & 10:15a
Please stop at number pick-up and check-in immediately after entering the park. After passing the park entrance gate where you pay your park entry fee you will need to go to the parking lot to your left and park there temporarily. This is where you will check-in and get your race number etc. Then you will need to drive your car 2-3 miles further south by taking a left on the main park spine road. At the top of a hill when the paved road takes a hard curve to the right you will drive straight onto a dirt road. Keep going into the field until you see the MTB staging and parking.
Please see the embedded/linked Strava segment to access a map and profile of the approximate course. While this won’t be the exact Mountain Bike course because we will use a different staging, start, and finish than is shown in this segment and they re-worked parts of the trail repairing it from the 2015 flood damage it will be mostly the same. This is a segment of the full 12-mile loop the race uses so this is as close to map as you are going to get. We’ll use the same staging and start/finish as previous years and the same as the DORBA races at Cedar Hill in recent years.
