Kincaid Short Track

Tuesday, August 10


What the heck is a short track race? Well, it's fast and furious, for one. Racers ride laps around a short, technical course (our course is just over 1 mile long) for 30 minutes, plus one more lap around. Our course involves ski trails plus a bit of rooty single track (read: cross bikes not appropriate or allowed) with some ups and downs. This race is GREAT for spectators because racers will be flying through the start/finish area all the time- no waiting 30 or more minutes to see your rider! We expect the expert riders to do one lap in about 5 minutes or so.

Race Format
All Experts, All Masters & Men's Sport: 7:00-7:30pm, plus one lap
Women's Sport, All Beginners & All Juniors: 7:45-8:15pm, plus one lap

Here is the MAP.

(EVERYONE must register during this time - the second group will get to watch and cheer on the first group!)

Pre-race meeting will be right before your group goes out on the course.

Adults $15, under 18 race free.

You MUST be a member of the Arctic Bike Club to race. Please fill out the membership form and mail it in, or bring it to the race with your payment (with everything already filled out). I will NOT be providing membership forms at registration. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR BECOMING A MEMBER BEFORE THE RACE. Membership forms can be found here.

Parking & Registration will be at the Jodhpur parking lot, NOT at the usual stadium area. We wanted to change it up a bit. Directions: instead of staying on Raspberry and heading straight into the Kincaid entrance, you'll take a left on Sand Lake Road. Then take a right onto Kincaid Road. The road will take a 90 degree left turn (Jodhpur Rd.), follow this around. You'll pass some houses and then on your right will be a turn-off into the park - it is the same entrance as the motor-cross park (and it will be the ONLY right you can take on that back stretch of road). Alternately, you can take Dimond west past Sand Lake Road, follow the curve to the right, then take a left into the parking lot.

(as of 8/8/10)

If you have any questions/concerns, please email or call the race director (Megan) at or 440-9928.
