Awards at MTB start/finish after each race.
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 and 2018 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.
