Come out for 6 hours of as many laps at Briar Chapel as you can muster or go out for the 3 hour option. All the net money raised from this race will go to improve and expand the trail system at Briar Chapel!  A big thanks to Newland Communities for supporting mountain bike trails as part of their community development.

When is this going to happen?

Good question. We don’t have a date yet for the 2020 race but we can say that it won’t be the November 1st date we were hoping for. We will notify TORC members as soon as we know the plan. And we’ll post it as an event in the TORC meetup group too.

The Beginner/Novice category is for those who haven’t ever raced singletrack before or you just want to dip your toes in the race scene and see what this is all about, we put on low-pressure races and you are guaranteed to have fun if you come out and give it a shot.

We reserve the right to combine categories if there are less than five participants in a category.  We also reserve the right to create more categories if there are enough participants (so there will be Open Women age groups if the ladies out there encourage each other to sign up and race!).

Race Route:
This year we are going to encompass some of the new trail built late last year so expect a route that is somewhere between 8-9 miles long. Click here for the Race route.  Novice will not go up & down Bennett & ETD so if you are not a Novice- expect to ride ~8.5 miles per lap while Novice racers will do ~ 6 miles per lap.  We have Meetup rides at Briar Chapel on a fairly regular basis so come out when you can beforehand with us and see what kind of trails are here. Expect some rocks, expect some climbing, and a lot of fun.

Amenities:

T-shirts! T-shirt size guaranteed if you register by October 1st! This year in Men and Women cuts! T-shirts will be available for the first 100 registered just can’t promise you the right size if you don’t register early!

Awards:
Awards will be given 3-deep to both 3-hr and 6-hr categories. The awards will be based on how many racers compete in a category.

  • A minimum of 5 racers/teams per category is required to issue the 1st Place prize.
  • A minimum of 10 racers/teams per category to issue the 2nd Place prize.
  • A minimum of 15 racers/teams per category to issue the 3rd Place prize.

So if there are at least 10 racers in a category, 1st place and 2nd place will receive the prizes listed. If there are 15 racers, then 3rd place will also receive a prize.

If a category has only 4 racers, the 2nd place prize listed will be issued to the 1st place winner. For example, if only 4 experts race, 1st place will receive $50 Performance card or $50 cash plus TORC socks (or a TORC cup if you prefer).

If a category has only 3 racers, the 3rd place prize listed will be issued to the 1st place winner. For example, if only 3 experts race, 1st place will receive a much coveted TORC stainless steel cup.

If there are only 2 racers/teams competing, no prize will be issued but you get podium time and recognition.

The sponsors are Performance Bike, Bicycle Chain, Back Alley Bikes (BAB) and Bullseye Bicycle. The All Star Bike shop gift card is a donation from a generous TORC member.
