2013 WNYMBA Winter Fest Mountain Bike Race

In its second year, the Winter Fest Mountain Bike Race at Chestnut Ridge Park is sure to be hit once again.  The fact that most of the course is visible from the top near the casino will make this a great event to watch.  The race will be on a short-track course a little over a mile in length, with the first part going down the sledding hill.  COURSE MAP



Race day is set for Sunday January 27th.  There will be a long and short race to be run separate from each other with the short race first.  The short race will be 20 minutes long, the long race will be 40 minutes long.  The short race will begin at 1pm sharp and the long race will begin by 1:40pm.


Day of registration will be located at a table just inside the casino.  Registration will open at 11:30am closing promptly at 12:45pm to get ready for the short race start at 1pm.  $17 for one race and $22 for both.  There will be a racers' meeting at 12:50pm just before the start of the first race.  No pre-riding the course on race day.  Preregistration is available at the Webscorer link below.

We will have six age groups; 19 & under, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 & over for both the short and long races.  The female's class will be open, meaning no age groups.  Racers doing both races will be in an open category for the short race and their age group for the long.


Medals will be awarded to the top three finisher in each age group for both races.  Cash prizes go to the top three finishers for all age groups of the long race.  A cash prize will be awarded to the first place finisher of the short race open category.  Nearly $500 in cash prizes will be awarded.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
