Yes in a way. You can race ether Beginner to Expert. I raced Sport in my first ever DH race back in 97. You would have to get a Norba lic. too.ChipV said:That sounds awesome...
Are the categories the same as XC (beginner, sport, expert, etc)? If so, does someone that has never raced automatically race beginner?
yeah:skep: :skep: :skep:coma13 said:You hit the nail on the head.... Shorter than an XC race, longer than a DH race, more descending than an XC race, more climbing than a DH race. The courses can vary from barely more than an XC course to what most people would call a DH course.
Buh? Not here.. Most guys are running 4" to 6" mini DHers and Full DH bikes. We do see a few XC bikes.wyrm said:To be honest it is just a glorified XC race. Most of the races I've seen the racers were running sub 22lb bikes. Suchas 29ers, and light duty fully. If racers are racing XC bikes and winning that qualifies as XC for me. Not so Super........ or D.
