Prologue TT - Rumble on the Ridge **CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER
CANCELLED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER.This kicks off the NICA race series.
The trails here at this park once held the IMBA ‘EPIC’ status and feature miles of high quality single track. This course will start with a long section along Peavine Falls road which will allow racers ample time to sort out before they dive onto the ‘Mr. Toads’ trail and return back to the infield. After coming off this trail, riders will make a hard left for another short section of road before linking together the ‘Family Trail’, ‘Rattlesnake Ridge’ and ‘Lake Trail’ to complete a 4.86 mile lap. When heading out for
subsequent laps, racers will bypass the first section of road and the ‘Mr. Toads’ trail and continue straight to the ‘Family Trail’. This cuts out approximately 1 mile from the first lap overall distance resulting in a lap of just under 4 miles for all categories that will be completing multiple laps.
