RIDING AT NIGHT

A charging station and additional lights will be available for purchase in the paddock area.

The King / Queen of the Mountain is a fun challenge on course that pushes riders to give it their all and see how quickly they can get up the front stretch hill after turn 14. Timing data points are located at the bottom and top section of the hill top capture riders as the enter and exit the challenge section.
The Speed Challenge is all about SPEED and how fast you can go on the back stretch of the course before turn 5. This is a flat and fast section the really lets you drop the hammer and crank it up. Timing data points are located at the start and finish of the speed section capture riders as the enter and exit the challenge.
The Distance Challenge rewards the top rider in the entire event who has completed the most amount of laps in the allotted amount of time. This is sort of our "winner" of the event.
