Here is a little more info...
There are two events (April 12th). One is a Urban MTN bike criterium. The First event is basically a MTN Bike race on asphalt, concrete, stairs and a parking garage. The racers race up a 5 level parking garage then back down to street level over to city hall then going down the front steps of city hall to the blocked off street that takes racers downhill to the next staircase leading to Lake Mirror for another sidewalk climb to the turnaround point to head back to the parking garage to start the next lap. That race will run for one hour then we sound an alarm and give racers one last lap. The course is about ¾ mile but fast and fun. Most racers use a MTN bike with slick tires for traction and speed while many use knobbies as well. If you can ride down city/public grade stairs then you can compete and have fun at this race. Cash payout for serious divisions.
The second event is a great spectator event and you will want to bring your cameras for this one! We set up a 2x Speed Trials course for the talented Free Riders to showcase some skills and create some fast competition. Riders will compete on identical courses with various obstacles such as ramps and stunts. First one to the bottom is the winner. Using double elimination until a winner is crowned. Lots of big air from these guys.
