Course Description: Tracks: Several of Angel Fire’s top bike park DH trails will be utilized simultaneously for the event. All trails have new features for 2011 and will finish at the Chile Express chairlift for uphill access back to the start of the courses. The event start will be a mass start at the top of the lift.

Track #1: This is one of Angel Fire’s new DH tracks called Chillin’. This trail has lots of steep loam, great flow, and all the flowy tech you gravity riders have come to expect from Angel Fire! This will be the track that the Collegiate Nationals will utilize for the race and you get to break it in.

Track #2: Chillin and flowin is the name of the game for this track. This track will utilize different flow trails that have been either added or improved at Angel Fire Bike Park. Wooden bridges, jumps, awesome flowy single-track, what more could you ask for. Hop on for 12 hrs and see how many flow-track laps you can do.
