Race #4: The Flow at Jordan Creek

October 21-22
Jordan Creek Park Allentown, PA
REGISTER

RESULTS

RACE DESCRIPTION

Hugging the water that gives it its name, Jordan Creek Park is a hidden gem right in Pennsylvania’s third largest cities. The park is just off of the state-crossing Route 22 and not far off of the Northeast Extension of the turnpike. Don’t be fooled by the infield at the ball fields; several miles of rooty, well-maintained singletrack are in the nearby woods. Riders will be flowing like the nearby water on this Eastern PA course. Thanks go to Valley Mountain Bikers for maintaining these trails.

Race #5: FINALS at the Boyce Big Ring

October 28-29
Boyce Park Pittsburgh, PA
REGISTER

RESULTS

RACE DESCRIPTION

Just outside of the Steel City, Boyce Park is just one of many mountain bike havens in the Allegheny County Park system. Boyce is a  short drive from downtown Pittsburgh, but it doesn’t feel like you are that close to PA’s second largest city once you get on these trails. With an access road running like a spine at this course, this is a super spectator-friendly venue, with some high-quality singletrack. Thanks to Trail Pittsburgh for preserving these trails!
