The event will begin with a timed downhill seeding run. Then racers will be placed in groups for a wave start based on their seeding times. The real race starts close to the summit with a short sprint climb before heading down the News ODB trail to lower Threshold through the base area and out our 3 mile rolling single track loop. Toward the end of the loop racers will hop on Easy Rider and charge to the summit for a finish down Happy Hour.
We're looking to showcase the best all mountain riders, if you've got both the legs for XC and DH skills this is the event for you. - Dave Smutok, Highland's VP of Business Development and Pro Rider
