|Summer Race Series
|One week and counting……until the start of the seventh annual Christenbury Eye Center Charlotte Summer Mountain Bike Series. The 2007 series is proudly presented by the Tarheel Trailblazers and will kick off on Wednesday, April 25, at the US National Whitewater Center. The rotation of the series will be USNWC, Beatty, Renaissance, and N Meck Park and will take a break every fifth race, totally sixteen exciting races.
New for the 2007 event, the singlespeed category. In order to add the singlespeed category, we had to change a few other categories. There will not be a Masters category but we have changed the age requirements of the Beginner and Sport Categories. The age break downs for the Beginner and Sport Categories will be 19 – 39 and 40+. All other categories are the same as previous years.
One other change is the entry fees. Since the inception of the series, the entry fee has been $10, and the one day NORBA license being $3.
This year, the entry fee is going to be $12 for those who have an annual NORBA license, with the option of the one-day NORBA license being $3.
If you would like to purchase an annual NORBA or USA Cycling Mountain Bike license, visit www.usacycling.org . Not only do you save money purchasing the annual license, you receive lots of great benefits including a substantial secondary health insurance policy.
