Wednesdays @ Wakefield #1

PVC Wednesdays @ Wakefield Series
This year’s 14th Annual Wednesdays-at-Wakefield (W@W) Mountain Bike Racing Series is here and hopes to honor the tradition of the past twelve years by providing our unique racing opportunity during the middle of the week! The W@W Cross-Country (XC) multi-lap course (that borders on being a super-sized short track) takes riders through Wakefield Park in what it expected to be our biggest event yet!

We require you to fill out a USA Cycling Rider Release form during EACH race (even if you filled it out before, you need to do it EACH time). To save time, please bring a completed copy of your USA Cycling Rider Release Form electronically and bring it to registration to speed things up!

Course Details
The race course will be run at the northern area of the park with the Starting Line is located at the bottom of the gravel hill near the sub-station, and the Finish Line located at the top of the gravel hill near registration. The course has been modified to include the switchback climbs and downhill berms at the center of the park. Racers in the 5:30PM race (Juniors) will not be doing the powerline climb or berm descent part of the course.

Podium Details

Experts will receive cash — 50% of expert men’s gate and 100% of expert women’s gate — back in cash.

    I was so excited to come out and meet the group for the first time tonight, but when putting my bike on the bike rack, I realized it's broken. This sucks! Hopefully I'll make the next ride. :-/
