The Empire State Winter Games Winter Bike Races Are Back!
After a year-long hiatus, Winter Bike is returning to Mt. Pisgah in Saranac Lake on Saturday, February 4 with cross country and dual slalom racing.
Cross Country (XC)
The cross-country course rolls over some of the best terrain the mountain has to offer. Competitors can expect 45 minutes of riding with multiple laps. There will be three-course options. We will choose the best option for the conditions on race day and after training will determine the number of laps for each competitor class. All competitors will compete at the same time with awards being given for the Top 3 in the following categories:
Dual Slalom (DS)
This event features thrilling side-by-side racing over a sprinter short downhill-only course that features turns, rollers and other terrain features. Riders will first tackle the course individually and will be timed to determine seeding for finals with the fastest 16 men and 8 women moving onto the finals. Riders will then compete head-to-head according to their seed with the fastest qualifier for each heat being able to choose their course. The competition then continues through the March Madness-style brackets with a single knockout format until the top 3 are crowned.
