September 10th, 2016 Event Completed
Race 2 | Reno – Ironhorse Roundup
Race Day Call Up PDF – For the remainder of the 2016 events. Student athletes will be positioned in the staging area by their points total for the season.
The second race of the Nevada League takes us to Hidden Valley Regional Park. Known by locals as the go-to mountain bike trails regardless of weather or time of year, Hidden Valley provides a sharp contrast from the tree line trails of the Tahoe XC nordic center. Bring plenty of water and sunscreen as shade is as scarce as yellow jackets – Wahoo! Caution here to stay on the trail as embedded rocks lie just to the side hidden amongst the ground cover. Wild horse can frequently be seen grazing the hills of this Washoe County park. The High school course is 4.4 miles in length with 407’ of climbing per lap. The shorter middle school course is 2.75 miles, 203’ per lap. The GPX files can be downloaded below.
All racers can pre-ride and inspect Friday afternoon (2:00PM-5:00PM) and Saturday morning (8:00AM-9:00AM). We recommend all riders pre-ride the course. Please pass course workers with great care. For complete event details download the Race Flyer above.
