Greenway Classic - New Dates!


 

Join us this December for our first ever (and rescheduled) Greenway Classic Mountain Bike Adventure! Compete for first place in individual events AND/OR go for the ultimate challenge and test of grit and compete for title of ULTIMATE CLASSIC CHAMPION (UCC).

 

While we will have your typical categories for each event and events can be won individually, the UCC winners (open male, open female, master’s 40+) are the people who do best over the course of the weekend in all events.

Saturday (event 1)

Events will kick off Saturday morning with a grueling 50-miler with a twist, for the first time ever, competitors will be able to ride non-mountain bike trails at the Greenway. This means be prepared to rough it through horse trails (potentially carrying your bike at times), up stairs, and over bridges. There will be no pre riding the course and we will not reveal the course map until the Friday of the race - this is not for the faint of heart. Again, this event will have individual category winners but will also count toward UCC status.

 

On Saturday evening as we wrap up the racing and get the music going, there will be an opportunity to knock some seconds off your overall time through a variety of mini-competitions. Every mini-competition will allow the top three finishers to knock off a few extra seconds on their overall time. This is a spectator sport and we strongly encourage cheering, heckling and commentary!

 

Sunday (event 2)

The weekend wraps up on Sunday with breakfast and a brisk morning short track race, with categories ranging from junior to expert. The overall winner of this event (of those competing for the UCC title) will get as many minutes knocked off their time as there are participants.

 

Food, fire pits, hot chocolate, music, beer, cornhole and more will be available throughout the weekend. Camping will be available both Friday and Saturday night so bring your whole family and come prepared to tackle the Greenway Classic.

 

When: Friday, Dec. 14th – Sunday, Dec. 16th 2019
Where: Field Trial Barn at the Adventure Road entrance
