The short track provides a unique and fun style of racing to the greater Charlotte region - short-track mountain bike racing on a 1.2 mile trail with banked turns. It's a cross between a criterium, BMX, cyclo-cross and single-track, super fast and very spectator-friendly. Start 2 Finish and Anne Close Springs Greenway have worked hard to create a trail that's exciting for the race participants and spectators. Participants, based on category, will race 15 to 25 laps on the fast course. All of the events will be held at Anne Springs Close Greenway at the Field Trial Barn. We plan to have a food truck, an event photographer, and music at all of the events.
There will be safety measures in place for the 2021 series in an effort to limit contact and prevent the spread of the COVID virus among participants, spectators and those working the event. Please stay tune as we update the safety measures.
The series awards will be handed out after the last race in the series. It will take a little more time as each will need to be calculated. We will have a podium presentation for the top 5 overall in each category.
Race #1 and Series Registration is OPEN!

The Team competition will consist of team members across all categories earning points. The points will be derived from a new system called "Pack Points".
