Nothing could be easier--or more fun--than drinking a special Terrapin Moo-Hoo cask featuring Condor Chocolate and supporting local trails (except perhaps riding those trails!). Please join us at the Royal Peasant on Tuesday, October 6th at 6pm. Cheers!

**the route has been altered slightly from the map above. riders will now start and end in the middle parking lot...next to the tree symbol above...and ride on the walkway that starts at the west end of that parking lot.**
PLEASE USE THE PETER STREET ENTRANCE (NEAR THE BY-PASS)! THE TRAIL CREEK STREET ENTRANCE WILL BE CLOSED DURING THE RACE!Riders will start the 2.5 mile course in the middle parking lot of Trail Creek Park. Riders will race up the paved path by the soccer field, through the woods, and back around the upper parking lot. Riders will enter the trail system traveling clockwise and descend down Panic, through the Pine Forest, and race under the Trail Creek Street bridge. Next riders will cross over the Boyscout Bridge and turn left onto the Green Trail. In this super fast section riders will turn left onto the Connector Trial, then follow the Orange Trail from last year's course through the upper section of the trail. Riders will then fly down the power line descent, bypassing Josh's Jump, and connect back to the Green Trail. The final section of the course will be the Green Trail to the Gravel Triangle. Once at the Gravel Triangle, riders will exit the trail system onto the Greenway, and the final sprint of the course will be on the Greenway and Trail Creek Street. Riders will have to finish strong on the final uphill drag back to the middle parking lot of the park.
Top 50 times across all categories will qualify to race in the nighttime Scott Mountain Bike Finals Criterium, which will be held on the downtown 4-corner Twilight course and will be 20K long (20 laps). Payouts will be determined based on the number of entrants.
In an effort to make this a true mountain bike race, riders will ride the same bike for the Criterium as they ride for the Time Trial, except tires may be switched out.
- Gears and chain rings can NOT be switched out.
- No drop bars will be allowed.
- Tire width has to be at least 1.5 inches.
- Slick tires are allowed.
- Please plan to be there early so that they can stay on schedule.

Online registration closes @ Noon on Wednesday, April 22, 2014.

Little Kings will be the SORBA-Athens headquarters for Twilight both Friday night and all day/night Saturday. There is a suggested minimum donation of $5 at the door, all of which will go directly to SORBA-Athens. We will also get a percentage of all Terrapin beer sold. With the new Twilight route this year Little Kings will be on one of the most exciting corners on the course with great spots for viewing the races. Come party with us at Twilight and support our efforts to build more trails in the Athens area.
