More Kids On Bikes!!

Circus Bear Productions is stoked and excited about the new NICA kids on the block, The Delaware Dirt Destroyers.  DDD is a newly formed NICA mountain biking team based out of northern Delaware. The team welcomes riders in grades 6-12.  The team rides and races under the Pennsylvania Cycling League which competes in cross-country style racing. You can see them in action this Saturday at Big Elk Off Road.  

Help us support NICA and DDD!  For every racer that registers, we will donate $1 to the DDD team.  The team is currently seeking sponsorship to support purchasing team uniforms (kits), race-day equipment (spare tires, tubes, bike stands, replacement parts, etc.), and team supplies (first aid, food, team event tents and chairs, etc.)  Simply by just registering you are helping these dedicated kids and coaches.  Also, there is a spot in your cart when registering to donate additionally to the PA Bucks for Bikes program.

That’s right! Big Elk Off-Road MTB Race is bringing you a course worthy of the MASS XC/Endurance season finale! Hang on to your helmets, because you’ll be diving through twisty, rooted single track, rocketing along Big Elk Creek, wondering where your “Happy Thoughts” went at times, blasting through a rock garden, throttling flowy downhills, and torpedoing up undulating climbs. That’s right, it’s not yo’ mama’s course! And because more is more, Endurance racers will have the added delight of tackling bonus single track through Fair Hill’s coveted “South Park” trails.
