Charge up those lights people; it’s time to clock in. SORBA Chattanooga presents Night Shift on April 12th 2014; the first ever twilight mountain bike race at Enterprise South Nature Park; you don’t wanna miss this one. Night Shift is a 6 Hour Mountain Bike Race with classes for solo riders, duos, or 3 friends just looking to have fun. We’ve even given the bike industry their own classes in the ultimate throw down for bragging rights.
The Enterprise South Nature Park mountain bike trails are modern machine built trails using all the latest trail building techniques. Grade reversals, berms, table tops, and bridges make this course feel like a 10 mile pump track. Racers will complete as many full laps of the Enterprise South Nature Park mountain bike trails as they can in a 6 hour time period. Each lap will consist of all three mountain bike trails; Black Forest, TNT, Log Rhythm; and the connector trails for a total of 10 miles per lap.
We like to give our racers something special, and this race is no different. The first 200 entrants will get a special glow in the dark event t-shirts. Super-secret one of a kind trophies will be awarded in to the winners in all competitive categories. Don’t forget to gorge yourself on the post-race meal and win swag during the awards ceremony. SORBA Chattanooga gear available for purchase throughout the race as well. Swag raffles will take place during the awards ceremony. Prizes will include a Lynskey Ridgeline 29 or Lynskey Ridgeline 650b, your choice.
