This is it Creekers… Summer is here! Starting on Thursday the park will now be open daily through Labor Day, and summer hours go into effect starting on Thursday. That gives us all 25 more hours of riding time per week. That’s the chance for more than 100 more laps per week. Yay! Summer!
The arrival of summer also means we’ll be kicking off our Thursday Night Race League this Thursday. For those of you who are not familiar, TNRL is our weekly fun race series. $10 (Free for 15 & Under) gets you at least 1 timed run on our weekly course, followed by a prize raffle, awards and karaoke in the Biergarten. Registration opens each week at 4PM in Monkey Trails and the racing starts at 5PM. This week we’ll be kicking things off on Breakout!
Speaking of racing, the Enduro racers out there will be happy know that we have opened registration for the King of the Mountain race which is being held in conjunction with the Mid-Atlantic Super Series once again. So, mark your calendars to join us July 17-18th for the KOM.
Please note, Crap Chute will be closed Thursday and will reopen during the day on Friday.
