The University of Nevada Cycling Team Presents:

2006 Peavine MTB Races

October 28th & 29th
USA cycling Permit Pending

Course Descriptions:

XC – At 26 miles long with 4400 ft of climbing you don’t have to be a math major to add this one up; it’s going to hurt. The XC course will test rider’s will as they tackle long, grinding climbs and twisting single-track descents. Expect freezing temperatures in the morning.  A’s will do 2 laps (26 miles, 4400 ft climbing). B’s will do one lap (13.5 miles, 2200 ft climbing). C’s will do one short lap (7.5 miles, 2200 ft).

DH – The downhill will be run on the same course as 2005. It is fast and rocky, but not excessively rough. The Men’s A will do an alternate drop line.

STXC– The short track, like George Jefferson, will be short but intense. Riders begin climbing a short 300m section of fire road, followed by ½ mile of fast double track before turning right and descending the final section of the DH course. Riders then return to the start on single track.

Super D – The Super D course will be run on a mix of the XC and DH descents following a Le Mans start.

Directions: From The Bay area head East on I-80 to Nevada. Exit on Virginia St. downtown and Head north. You will pass campus on the right. Continue to just past McCarran road and make the first left into the Rancho San Rafael Softball field parking lot. The XC race starts from near the far end of the lot.
To get to the Downhill start, follow Virginia Street further north past the softball fields. Just after the Bonanza casino you will turn left onto Hoge road. The road turns to dirt at the top, continue to just before the Forest service signs and head south along the fence line. The course starts at the rock outcropping and will be marked.
