Sunset at Centennial is a kids-only mountain bike race at Centennial Park in Fayetteville on November 5. The 9-11 year olds will race on the same course as the NICA race the next day, the Learner's Permit trail and a marked course in the field on top of the mountain using parts of Junk Drawer and the world championship cyclocross course Chasing Gold. Riders will encounter tons of smooth flow, some rocks, many berms, and some sustained climbing on the long course. The 6-8 year olds will race on the same marked course in the field on top of the mountain. They will encounter some small berms, smooth fast single track, grass course, and a start and finish along the famed runway!
Preride is available from 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm. Every rider must be supervised by an adult parent, coach, or guardian.
Volunteers are needed! Please sign up HERE!
