The Bad Moon Rising returns Saturday March 23rd, 2019 to Berryville, Arkansas and racing may never be the same. The CC Riders, the Carroll County Branch of the OORC, are stoked to present the Bad Moon Rising! Featuring the private trail system at the Trimble Ranch in Berryville, Arkansas and with solo and team relay categories available… it’s 6+ hours of Ozark mountain biking at its baddest (in a good way)! New for 2019, the race course will run COUNTER-CLOCKWISE offering a new experience for returning racers. For first-timers, the race course is comprised of 4-miles of private single track through fields and lowland forest with minimal elevation and predominantly smooth tread. It’s fast and racer friendly. With complimentary camping and craft beverages, communal bonfires, costumes encouraged, and food available - it’s a night full of mountain bike shenanigans you won’t forget. The event offers several OPEN Categories to compete in including 4-person Male, 4-Person Female, 4-Person Co-Ed (must be comprised of two male and two female competitors), 2-Person OPEN, 4-Person Junior (minimum racing age of 13), and of course the highly competitive Solo categories. For 2019, we’ll be rolling out two new Categories including a SINGLE-SPEED SPECIFIC SOLO Category and a new 4-Person FAMILY Category. Onsite Registration and campgrounds open at 4pm on race day. The course will be available to pre-ride from 4-5pm. Racing starts at 6pm and runs until MIDNIGHT! All racers will be required to fill out a waiver onsite. Junior racers (under 18) will need a parent or guardian signature to compete. All competitors must have at least one light source after dusk to compete, 2 is recommended (helmet & bar). All team relay members must complete at least ONE lap. Stay tuned for additional details including a link to preregister. Funds raised go to support the CC Riders and volunteer trail advocacy in Carroll County, Arkansas. The CC Riders are the Carroll County Branch of the Ozark Off Road Cyclists, a Regional 501c3 nonprofit that advocates for, builds, maintains, and preserves multiuse soft-surface trails across the Arkansas Ozarks.
