Short Track Mountain Bike Event, September 11
Copper is excited to host a short track mountain biking event on Saturday, September 11 as part of Copper Cross. Short Track is a mountain bike competition similar to a criterium where riders complete multiple laps on a short 3 - 5 min dirt course for 20 - 25 minutes. Short Track is a cross between a criterium race, BMX, cyclocross and single-track, super-fast and very spectator friendly. For more details, visit www.SoulEventsUSA.com.
Cyclocross Mountain Bike Event, September 12
Also part of Copper Cross, make sure to check out the exciting and unique cyclocross race at Copper on Sunday, September 12. Cyclocross races consist of many laps of a short (1.5 – 2 mile) course featuring pavement, a Le Mans-style start, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles requiring the rider to quickly dismount, carry the bike whilst navigating the obstruction and remount.
