Race #3 of Plattekill Bike Park’s NYS Championship Downhill Series and Race #2 of the NYS Championship Dual Slalom Series will take place this weekend, July 25-26.
Saturday’s Dual Slalom starts at 3pm...plenty of time to practice DH and race the DS!!! We’ve been adding topsoil on the course all week and prepping it for Saturday’s action. The course debuted last month and was well received by racers. The course was built from input received from the racers and features double bermed turns and multiple jumps. Race both DS & DH and SAVE $10 OFF YOUR DS ENTRY!

Sunday’s Downhill starts at 11am. All new DH course for this weekend will start at the classic triple chair side of the mountain. The trail crew led by Delta House Racing worked overtime getting the course ready to shred. The course features all of the great natural features that the Park offers, as well as a new section bulldozed this past week. Just up from the all new Dual Slalom Course, the DH track emerges from the woods into a steep off camber sweeping right hand turn back into the woods where you’ll be greeted by a series of bermed “S” turns, that leads to a new 20’ step down jump. The Cat 2/3 (beginner/sport) track will be fun and fast with berms and kickers located along the way, the faster you go the harder it will get!!!

Both race events are open to all ages and abilities!!! Registration opens Saturday 9am, Sunday 8am.

FREE BEGINNER RACER CLINICS for new racers will again be offered by Mad March Racing Coach Billy Allison, for FREE to all “first-time” racers Saturday 12-2pm. You have no excuse not to try racing…come familiarize yourself with the course and learn the fundamentals of racing – he’ll be there to guide you every step of the way!
