------Pocono Bike Club Double Down Super D-------

The Pocono Bike Club will host a Double Down Super D on Saturday, November 14, 2015. What's a Double Down you say? Its two timed race runs on one of the best Super D courses! The racers times will be combined to see who's both the fastest and most consistent down Godfreys Ridge!

This event is being hosted by the Pocono Bike Club. Sponsors include Vertical Earth Mountain Sports, Oskar Blues Brewery, Siamsa Irish Pub, and Strausers Nature Helpers. All proceeds benefit the PBC and trail improvements at Glen Park.

We'll also be welcoming Jason from VMB to the race. He'll be providing electronic scoring; the same as events such as Trexx Fest and Bad Bear Enduro. Riders will be issued a timing chip at the registration table. The chip will be used to time in and out of the course. Results are posted up almost immediately after the racer turns in their chip.

Enjoy some post race chili courtesy of Siamsa as well as promotions from Oskar Blues. There will be a Foot Down contest following the race and all riders are encouraged to participtate in this light hearted test of balance.

If you are interested in volunteering for race day or proceeding trail work days please visit our club's FB page here:
