New for 2013! Short Track mountain biking at Kings!
What is short track MTB racing?
Short track MTB racing takes place on a ~3/4 mile trail and is a cross between a criterium, cyclo-cross and single-track off-road racing. Racers do multiple laps on the short 3-5 minute course, with races running in length between 5 minutes for kids up to 30+ minutes for the Advanced category. The short track MTB course is designed to be fast, fun and very spectator friendly.

The Kings CX MTB Short Track Series is a USA Cycling sanctioned series event, but is designated as a “training series” by USAC. This means that partial USAC upgrade points are awarded. For example, if you race all 4 races in the series, it counts as 2 USAC mountain bike races.
