Race #1

Rally in the Valley

August 24th - 25th, 2024
Canaan Valley State Park

This season's opener race format will be a time trial.

The time trail format will give our athletes the chance to get their legs and lungs warmed up for a great race season. The course will dive into the single track right out of the gate. Then, it's a roller coaster ride on purpose built trails through the beautiful meadows and hardwoods surrounding Canaan Valley Resort. Plenty of passing opportunities open up on this course as racers alternate between single track and double track all while giving spectators plenty of chances to cheer on their favorite racers. Plan to spend the rest of the weekend riding the trails at this incredible resort destination mountain bike heaven!
