5-event bike race series at RED

July 7th | July 14th | July 28th | Aug 4th | Aug 11th: Grand Finale

Cycle Series is back better than ever!

Get geared up and pumped for the second season of the Cycle Series Timed Downhill Mountain Bike Races this summer. Race down the trails with awards and prizes on the deck, post-race! This summer, all races are one-offs (no points system like last summer), so that means each week YOU have a chance to claim your spot at the top with prizes every race!

First Beer On Us!
A huge thank you to Wirewood Construction for providing all contestants ages 19+ their first beer FREE on the deck after the race!

NEW: Win a Smith Race Kit!
All participants that are registered get entered to win a Smith Kit (Helmet & Sunglasses) each week, so even if you don’t win the race, you might win this sick prize!

Swag for you and your pet!
Petvalu is providing $50 Petvalu gift certificates for each of the 5 MTB races. They’ll also have cat and dog treats and coupon bags for the first race on July 7th for anyone who wants them.

Grand Finale!
Don’t miss the big ol’ Grand Finale on August 11th with even bigger prizes to be had for the final timed downhill race of the season!

Not interested in racing?
No problem, join us for Five Fridays and cheer on the participants on the RED Deck starting at 5PM until 9PM with some delicious food and cold beers. PLUS: musical performances every week just to sweeten the pot!
