DH Registration and Check-in

Registration and Check-in for Saturday's Downhill will be at the RACE START ON TOP OF GROUSE RIDGE. If you are also racing in the XC on Sunday, you will need to check in for that raceat Lake Sylvia State Park on Sunday. See Driving Directions for maps and written instructions to Grouse Ridge. If you come to the Park on Saturday for the downhill, volunteers will direct you to Grouse Ridge for registration, check-in, and the trial runs. It takes about 25 minutes to drive (not ride) over city, county and logging roads from the Park to the Ridge, so allow plenty of time.  There will be signs from the freeway exits directing you to Grouse Ridge.

XC Registration and Check-in

The main Race Headquarters is in Lake Sylvia State Park, across the bridge near the kitchen and main parking areas. On Sunday the PARK will be the Registration and Check-in site for the XC races.  See Driving Directions for a map and written instructions to the Park.
