Charlotte Mountain Bike Series
Charlotte Mountain Bike Series Kick Off April 26
The Charlotte Mountain Bike Series is set to kick off on April 26 at the US National Whitewater Center, see below for info on the park. We will still use the south entrance off Heavy Equipment School Rd until the park is open to the public and the new trails at the north end of the park are reconnected and ready to ride.

New for this season, sixteen races as opposed to twenty. We will make the rotation of each park, USNWC, Beatty, Renaissance, and N Meck, then take a week off. We will have one double points race during each four race rotation. The double points races will be announced the day of the race.

Two new categories, Super Sport Men and Expert/Super Sport Women. Both of the categories will race the same distance as Sport and were created to allow better competition throughout ALL categories. Any and all categories will be combined due to lack of participation.

If you plan to race the summer series as an Expert, specifically the men, you must purchase an annual NORBA license. NORBA licenses can be purchased at www.usacycling.org The women's category is a combined category so you can race as an Expert or Sport or any and all Expert women can race down a category with the men.

We are also working on food sponsors for the entire series. If possilbe, we would like to line up food sponsors for each and every event. Last be definitely not least, we have picked up many new sponsors this season. Most all of the local bike shops are back on board, plus Shimano, Trek, Kona,
Continental Tires, SockGuy, Gary Fisher, Nike, Bontrager, Easton, Clif Bar, Serfas, Fox, Giordana, and many more. What does this mean, lay off mail order, stop by your local shop, and let them know you appreciate their support by patronizing their business. If it wasn't for our local shops, we wouldn't have anything for prizes.
