The Rim Nordic Race Series kicks off this weekend, starting with the Downhill and Super D tomorrow, followed by the Cross Country on Sunday. Bear Valley Bikes Team members are ready to defend our title which we have held as the best team for the past 6 years.
The Rim Nordic Trails are located in the San Bernardino Mountains accross the street from Snow Valley Mountain Resort, about 20 minutes drive from Big Bear. This year, not only will the series include XC and Super D events, but also Downhill racing. Rim Nordic will be hosting the Calif. State DH Championship series, with the finals on Sept. 15th. All events will be National qualifiers with race #1 for this year’s Nationals and the remaining 3 for next year’s Nationals. The Downhill course will include 1 mile of downhill trail, mostly single-track through the forest, with a vertical drop of 550′ from start to finish.
Also new this year is the XC novice/beginers class which will be free to race. As fun as racing can be, it can also be very daunting and nerve wracking when starting out. We hope that this new category will encourage newcomers to try out racing and hopefully come to love it as much as we do.
