Courses:
 
We are happy to present you with official runs on all of your favorite trails at Bryce Resort's Bike Park, plus a few runs that are a special mix of whats on the ground.

Chainless DH:
The Chainless DH will be run on the Sundowner Trail. It's a great mix of mellow flow with a couple jumps, berms, turns, and a lot of places to pump. Remember that you will not have a chain on your bike for this, so you get your speed all from momentum. Less braking and good pumping technique will get you a winning run.

Downhill:
There will be two runs in the down hill race for Saturday afternoon: a route called TrashCan first (a mix of BrewThru, CarBomb, PickleBack, and CopperHead) and a route called PickleBomb second (a mix of Pickleback and Carbomb).

Timing:
 
We'll be using the SportIdent system. To use this system, you swipe (touch) a card in at the beginning of a run and out at the end of a run. There are many ways to attach your card to your person, including a retractable key fob, saftey pins on the back of your glove, or just stuffing it in your bra. Think up some creative attachments and come prepared.  We'll have a mix of attachment methods as well. 
You'll get your card at registration and we'll activate it for you by swiping it in the main computer. You can practice the method of swiping at registration. Personally, I like to attach my card to my wrist or the back of my glove. After you catch the lift to the top of the mountain and are ready to start your run, you will swipe it at the start. You STOP at the finish line and swipe it again. If you miss it, your time will still be running. The time goes from your last swipe at the controller. Then you go to the start of the next run and do it all over again. After you have completed all of your runs for that particular event, you come back to the timing tent, hand us the card, and we swipe you out, This step is important. If you don't give us your card at the end of the day, we can't swipe it, and you won't get times for the day, oh no! 
You'll get charged for lost or damaged cards. It's $25. I know you can handle not losing your card. Don't lose your card.

Omnuim Scoring:

We hope you'll hang out and race all weekend with us, so we've put together the 3 race omnium. We'll score based on accumulative time and see who comes out on top.

Spend the Weekend:

We've got a special deal on lift tickets that makes a 3 day weekend extra special. A one-day lift ticket is $25, a two-day lift ticket is only $35, and the big savings is a three-day lift ticket for $45. Make it a three-day trip and save $57 on tickets!

You can find Free Primitive Camping close by in the George Washington National Forest.

Disclaimer: 
 
I just want to make a little note to say, PLEASE MAKE GOOD DECISIONS.  Ride to your ability. It's a fine line between a really fast, awesome experience and a totally fucked up day (if not worse). It is always best to be able to ride tomorrow. These trails are advanced....not that you have to be "fast" to come ride them and have a good time. It just means go at a speed you are comfortable with. Even the best of us have a lapse of focus and crash. Be smart and safe.....that's all I want to say. I don't want anyone to get hurt.
