3rd Annual Short Track Series
Charlotte Sports Cycling and the Dirt Divas are teaming up once again to host the most exciting event of the new year, the Sir Edmond Halley's Cup presented by Heartwood Tree Service. If you haven't yet participated in one of the short track series races, its one of the most unique, thrilling races of the year. The short track is a combination of mountain bike racing and a road criterium. The course travels over fast single track with banked turns, a gravel road, a parking lot and a little bit of sidewalk, great for roadies and mountain bikers alike. The series will consist of five events, Jan 21 and 29, Feb 4, 12 and 18 and will all be held at the infamous Renaissance Park Short Track, rain, snow or shine. All events are very spectator friendly.

All events will feature 13 categories, including two new categories: Super Sport Women and Single Speed. Super Sport Women was created for the women not quite experienced enough to race Expert and for the fast road women without a NOBRA license. Weekly, we will award nice trophies for the top three finishers. For the series, participants will battle for cash and/or prizes from our great list of sponsors. We will have one double points race and a "Money Grows on Trees" promotion, both announced at random the day of the event. The Money Grows on Trees is a promotion brought to you by are sponsor, Heartwood Tree Service and consists of a $50 bonus for each category winner the day of the event.

We will have tons of great food from Halley's, coffee from Caribou Coffee, music and fast racing at each and every event. We will also have a heated area to keep your fingers and toes warm while you're watching other races. Come on out and see what its all about. Check out for registration, event schedule and all other pertinent information.
