DH– Come race the Chair 3 zone!! our Downhill races focus on more technical riding and are best suited for Downhilll bikes. That being said, a shorter travel bike can still be competitive by those with the right skills depending on category and course. Multiple courses will be offered for the different categories. This is a race against the clock! By using the Chair 3 zone you can really pound out some laps on this great terrain without running full top to bottom runs. You’ll need to save some of that energy for Sunday’s top to bottom race!!!
