The Alpine Valley Snowblast presented by Hayes and Sponsored by The Bicycle Doctor Nordic Ski Shop is a downhill mountain bike race for all riders and all bikes! Don’t miss your chance to race the first ever MTB race held on the snow at AV. It is open to any kind of bike with any size tire. It will be run one rider at a time against the clock and scored by combining your best 2 runs of 3 attempts (this may change depending on turnout because of time constraints). The course will be on the Mohawk run and will feature snow berms, jumps, and rollers that will be rideable for every level. There will be options to jump for speed or roll for safety, but everything will be rollable. There will be a machine to haul bikes up the hill while riders can take the chair lift.
Thanks to The Bicycle Doctor Nordic Ski Shop we will have a Trek Fuel EX 5 to raffle off! Every entry gets one raffle ticket and more will be available at sign up and throughout the day: 1 for $5, 3 for $10, and 10 for $20.
