Caesar Creek MTB Race is CANCELED!

Due to poor trail conditions caused by a sever storm about a month ago, we will not be able to have the course ready in time for next weekend’s Mountain Bike State Championship at Caesar Creek.  The storm laid down about 60+ trees along the trails.  A handful of people have been working numerous hours, sometimes daily, trying to clear the trails in time for the August 13th race.  Despite making quite a lot of progress, there is still a lot left to clear, and there just isn’t enough time to get it all done to have a safe race.  The work that has been done is greatly appreciated and we hope that work will continue to be done until the entire trail system in Caesar Creek is open again for recreational riding.  Many thanks go out to those who have been working on these trails.

 

We are entertaining the idea of rescheduling the race.  HOWEVER, we had a difficult enough time finding a date to hold the event to begin with, so looking for an alternate date will be a steep mountain to climb.  There aren’t many weekends left before we get into Cyclocross season, and many MTB-ers also race CX.

 

There is a rumor that Full Service Racing may be looking to do a repeat of either the Harbin Park Race or Hueston Woods Race to fill the vacant spot in the weekend as well as the vacant spot in the CORA Series.

 

We apologize for any inconvenience or heartbreak this may have caused you and hope that you understand the situation we are in.

2011 Caesar Creek MTB Race – State Championship

August 13, 2011

 PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS RACE HAS BEEN CANCELED.

  • Saturday, August 13, 2011
  • Caesar Creek State Park, Waynesville, OH

Newly Designed, FASTER AND Shorter Course

Caesar’s 2011 race course is fast, usually dry singletrack, with countless small climbs and descents.  Some descents are steep and moderately technical.  One or two good creek crossings, so remember your wet lube.  Start begins with 1/4 mile of slightly uphill pavement.  There is a 1.1 mile section of pavement in the middle of the loop.  The rest is all singletrack.

After the pre-race meeting at 11:45am in Hatton-Lukens Park, all riders will roll down to the starting line at the end of Harveysburg Rd by the lake.  Pro/Expert will roll off the line first at noon.  The rest of the Divisions will roll off every few minutes. The course will run clockwise for 2011.

  • $2 for each registered rider at this race will go back to CORA to help support trail maintenance and trail advocacy.

Additional USA Cycling MTB Licensing Information

  • USA Cycling only requires Pro and Category 1 riders to hold a USAC-MTB annual license.  Category 2 and Category 3 riders do not need a license and can self-categorize themselves.  One-day licenses are at the discretion of the promoter with the promoter keeping any additional funds charged for a one-day license or non-licensed rider.  This promoter says, “Shut up and ride!” and will not be charging anything extra for non-licensed riders.
  • So why have an annual license if you’re a Category 2 or Category 3 rider (and don’t expect to be competing for State Championship medals)?  As you should expect more USA sanctioned MTB races to appear in the area, holding an annual license will help with upgrading down the road.  Afterall, we all think we are Cat 1/Expert or Pro riders.
