We spoke to the trail coordinator at USNWC and the trails are obviously very wet. With more rain coming and the lack of sun today, we feel its best to postpone the race and shoot for a day that will not damage the trails. Posted at 11AM on 5/24/2017
The CITGO Fueling Good Charlotte Mountain Bike Series was created to provide mountain bike enthusiasts a fun and exciting opportunity to train and test their selves on a weekly basis. The Summer Series is 13 race point series on Wednesday evenings and rotates between four great mountain bike facilities in the Greater Charlotte area. Participants can race one event during the series or race them all. Registration is provided on site at each race venue.
The CITGO Fueling Good Charlotte Mountain Bike Series events are hosted every Wednesday evening throughout the summer with registration opening at 5:00 and the first category off at 6:15, with each category thereafter leaving in 2 minutes intervals. The starting order is: Expert Men, Super Sport Men, Sport Men, Super Sport Women, Beginner Men, Sport Women, Beginner Women, Juniors.
The CITGO Fueling Good Charlotte Mountain Bike Series point system is determined by taking the total accumulated points during the 13 race series. Each cyclist's best 11 finishes are counted. Points are determined by the number of participants in the race. For example, if there are 14 participants in a 1x race, 1st place receives 14 points, 2nd place receives 13 points, 3rd place receives 12 points, and so on. If there are 11 or less participants in a 1x race, 1st place receives 10 points, 2nd place receives 9 points, and so on. DNF's receive 1 point for participation.
