Two Road bike races to be held at Hunter Mountain in 2013

The Hunter Mountain Spring Classic and the Hunter Mountain Fall Classic will be held on May 11 and Sept. 7, respectively.
These are Two well supported bike race “classics” that came to the area last year.
Both races are presented by Anthem Sports and from the organizers of America’s Queen of the Classics, the Tour of the Battenkill.

The Hunter Mountain Classics are stops on the Stan’s Notubes Great American Cycling Series of Events for 2013.  A 39 mile road race with NO dirt road sections with an exciting start and finish at Hunter Mountain!

The complete circuit is 38.6 miles, with those in the Juniors category, ages 15-18, making the loop only once, but everyone else except Cat-1 doing it twice, for a total of 78 miles.
The Cat-1 Elite Men’s Pro category will travel 117 miles — a full three times around the circuit.

The initial category will start off at 9 a.m., with the race generally concluding about 3 p.m.
The Spring Classic race is the fourth in the year’s Great American Cycling Series, which is sponsored by Stan’s NoTubes, a distinctive tubeless design created by Corning businessman Stan Koziatek.
The race is preceded by the BattenSpring Classic in March, the Tour of the Battenkill in April, and then the Tour of the Dragons in Vermont in early May.
Tour of the Catskills in August is the seventh in the annual lineup, and the Hunter Mountain Fall Classic in September is the eighth on the circuit, after which it finishes up with the Tour of the Adirondacks and the BattenFall Classic.

Drake said the beauty of the region and the variety of the course challenge is what makes riders love coming to the Catskills.
“It’s been real positive,” he said. “It’s such a great area to race.”
Drake said that last year, the Hunter Spring Classic drew in more than 400 riders — a very respectable number for a race’s first year — and he is hoping to see even more this year.
“We’re hoping to improve on that this year,” he said.
“The whole Northern Catskills are just a great place to ride our bicycles,” Drake said.
“And,” he added, “it’s close to New York City, so it’s very convenient (for many participants).”

2011 US Open of Mountain Biking

2011 US Open of Mountain Biking – Registration now open

This Memorial Day weekend, the U.S. Open of Mountain Biking returns to Diablo Freeride Park with various venue-wide improvements, including an enhanced KENDA Downhill course to include challenging reroutes as well as some new featured additions. With a lofty cash and prize payout valued at $50,000, the 2011 U.S. Open of Mountain Biking continues the legacy of offering the largest pro-purse in America and the most competitive gravity racing in the nation.

Terralogic Park Industries, the official event promoters of the U.S. Open of Mountain Biking, have announced that athlete and vendor registration is now officially open. Set to take place on May 26th through May 29th, elite mountain bike racers from across the globe will assemble at Diablo Freeride Park to battle for a share in over $50,000 in cash and prizes.

Founded in 2003, the U.S. Open of Mountain Biking was established to reinvigorate interest in American gravity racing at a point in time where neglectful sanctioning bodies and sponsors of yesteryear had stripped the U.S. gravity scene of its identity, its soul and necessary funding. Nine years later, the proven, trendsetting PRO/AM format allows up-and-coming athletes the unique opportunity to test their mettle against the world’s fastest gravity racers. While the professional categories typically take center stage, the U.S. Open has become the premier proving ground for amateur racers, with several past champions using the win to kick-start professional careers.


The athlete field in the Men’s Downhill discipline will be capped at 450 total competitors and pre-registration is highly recommended to secure a qualifying position and guarantee your participation in America’s premier gravity race.
