Campmor Hudson-to-Highlands Race #5
SUNDAY, July 14, 2013
Kittatinny Valley State Park, Andover, NJ The 18th Come on up to beautiful Andover, New Jersey and participate in one of the region’s longest running mountain bike races! This race is again part of the Campmor H2H Race Series as well as an American Mountain Bike Challenge (AMBC—and it’s a higher value for National Points) and part of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Championship Series. That’s three distinct series that you can earn points all at one race! The course is fast, fun, and furious…somewhere in the neighborhood of 7 miles of fun mountain biking. Great for gears or single-speeders. Awesome for veterans of the sport or the first timers out there.
