The Inaugural SpeedFreaks Stage Race is a 2 day, 3 stage Mountain Bike Race to be held on October 17th and 18th 2009. The event will be held on a private farm overlooking the Potomac River 3.5 miles north of Leesburg Virginia.This is a Solo event only and all competitors must complete all 3 races to be eligible for Awards. Time Trial: Saturday Morning. This will be a 3.5 mile loop with riders starting every 20-30 seconds. Timing will be done using Chip Timing system, so extremely accurate. I expect finish times between 10 and 18 minutes. Short Track: – Saturday afternoon. Races all afternoon on a .8 mile short track course laid out in the open so that Spectators can surround the entire course. I laid out a track that uses a lot of the rolling hills and rock features of Rockland farm to create a very fun, fast course. Course may evolve between now and the race. Most likely, Cat 3 and Junior racers will do 6 laps, Cat 2 and Single speeders will do 8-9 laps, and Cat 1 racers will do 11-12 laps. Goal is each race lasting about 30-45 minutes. Marathon/Enduro: Sunday 4-5 hour Marathon race using the lengthened Leesburg Bakers Dozen course.The course is made up of rolling hills with plenty of semi-technical challenge in the form of rocks, roots, log piles, and small ledges. This is a fast course, but has been designed to accommodate all skill levels, from Beginner to Expert. The course has an additional 1.5 miles this year and will be run mostly in reverse of the 2009 Bakers Dozen. Final race start times will be announced once we see how many registrants we have in each category.
