Carver Lake Cold Catfish Cup 2016

  • Carver Lake Mountain Bike Park 3175 Century Avenue S Saint Paul, MN 55125 USA (map)

Same as every year, we're happy to be hosted by the wonderful crew out at Carver Lake Park Off-Road Cycling Trail. We've made accomidations for additional parking, and increased our participant numbers. 

Race Course

The course is always a tricky one, but we'll be monitoring the conditions closely leading up to the race date. Pending snow conditions, we'll run a very similar course as last year and post up a map as soon as it looks safe. 

Race Format

In past years, we've successfully orchestrated a mass start that included both categories of racers and distances starting at the same time. This year will be different. In order to accommodate more riders, we'll be splitting the field into 2 categories:

  • SPORT = 1 lap
  • ELITE = 3 laps

These two races will go off at different times so please read the rest of the details carefully. 

Race Schedule

With the addition of a second race, we've built a new timeline for the day. Please read carefully:

  • 9:30 AM - Registration opens for both SPORT and ELITE

  • 11:00 AM - Elite Category Race starts - 3 laps
