Get To Know
The Track is a half-mile long loop with 5 precarious turns, consisting of 4 right separated by a left. While the track is plowed and groomed, be forewarned of ice patches, soft spots, with a chance of snow, dirt, and grass spray kicked up by fellow racers.
The course is mainly flat, with some mild climbing and downhill sloping at the middle of the loop. Mind your lean into the corners to avoid getting to loose and wiping out.
The exchange zone is the area on the left side of the track preceding turn one.
The first turn takes racers 90 degrees right and into the longest stretch of straightaway. A good point to make a break and pickup some speed.
At the far end of the track is the 2nd turn. Racers will want to watch their speed into this turn as your bikes will coming out of the turn heading in the opposite direction.
The third turn will have racers making a left. The track narrows here, so make sure to get into the best placement leading in.
Racers will want to keep the speed up on the backstretch heading into the slight incline leading into turn four.
The 5th and final turn has racers making a right turn into the finish line. Watch out for havoc towards the end of the race.
