2005 Summer Race Series
Hope everyone is gearing up for another great year of mountain bike racing with the Charlotte Mountain Bike Series, now entering our fifth season. The Charlotte Mountain Bike Series is set to kick off April 20 at Historic Tuckaseegee Ford Park(Catawba), future home to the US National Whitewater Center. Yes, the park is closed to the public during construction but will be open for special events, to event participants ONLY. Please be aware if you ride at the park while closed, you are trespassing and subject to prosecution.

The Charlotte Mountain Bike Series will be held on Wednesday evenings at 6:15PM. The series will once again be sanctioned through NORBA. The race entry fee is $13 for adults and $8 for juniors with a $3 discount if you hold a current NORBA license. If interested in purchasing a NORBA license, visit www.usacycling.org All expert riders must have an annual license.

One major rule change: We will have six double points races during the 2005 season. Two will be random and announced on race day while the other four double points races will be held the last four regularly scheduled races of the season. The best eighteen finishes will be scored in the final results, basically you will be able to drop or miss two races with no worries.

The rotation of the races will be HTFP, Beatty, Renaissance and N Meck Park in Huntersville. Please note the week of July 20 and 27, the rotation will be switched. Renaissance on July 20 and Beatty on July 27. For more info on the series, check www.charlottemtnbike.com

BTW, Shimano has given us a set of XT wheels and a XT crank for prizes. The prizes will be given away by raffle just for entering the races. The more your race, the better chance you have of winning the prizes.
