The event consists of four races across all disciplines of collegiate mountain biking. Saturday (8:30)and Sunday (9:00) mornings there will be cross-country competitions on the Clarkson hill campus trails, and in the afternoons there will be gravity-fueled (downhill) events at Clarkson’s Seven Springs property, 100 Crowley Road in Colton.

The race weekend will be the second of six in this year’s Eastern circuit, with about 10 schools and more than 100 riders on the roster to compete. Riders who do well on the circuit will go on to compete at USA Cycling collegiate nationals in North Carolina.
