Hillside XC

Saturday, July 24, 10am
  • Race Registration:9-9:45am (I will shut down race registration at 9:45am SHARP, which means that you will NOT be allowed to register after that time.)
  • Pre-Race Meeting: 9:50am
  • Race Start: 10am sharp
  • Adults $15, under 18 race free!
  • Helmets are required.
  • You must be an ABC member to race - $20 for an annual membership ($5 for under 18). Please fill out the membership form, found here, and mail it in with a check. I will not be providing race registration forms at the race- YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BECOMING A MEMBER BEFORE THE RACE. You may bring your COMPLETED membership forms to the race, with payment and save a stamp.
  • RACE MAP! Note that we will not be racing anywhere near Campbell Creek or Rover's Run (and there will be plenty of people on and around the trails... bring a bear bell if you wish!)
Directions to parking and race start:
Parking will be in the northern most end of the Hilltop Ski Area lot. Take Abbott east past the Lake Otis intersection, go through Elmore, past Service High School. There will be a parking lot along the road on your left after you pass under the footbridge. Take the road that runs back from this parking lot into the Hilltop Ski Area. Pass the chalet and head to the back of the parking lot.

Race format:
Experts ride 3 laps and depart at 10:00am. Sport/Master riders have 2 laps and depart at 10:01am. Beginners/Juniors ride 1 lap and depart at 10:02am.

Points Series:
This race is the fifth race that will count in a series of races for POINTS. All of the Kincaid and Hillside XC races and all the races in the championships (10 races total) will earn you a certain amount of points (dependent on how well you place in the race). After the state championships, all points will be tallied and the racer with the most cumulative points will be crowned the state mountain bike racing champion! Woohoo!
