Registration is Open: Fox US Open “Next Gen” Fun Race, Killington Resort, Oct. 12-13
The Fox US Open Next Gen Fun Race series makes its inaugural debut at Killington Resort this Columbus Day weekend, October 12-13, 2019. This Next Gen fun race is designed for kids up to 14 that have downhill riding experience. Please note this is not a beginner or first-timer race.
The race course will be on Rabbit Hole and Lower Rabbit Hole, located on the Snowshed Peak. Rabbit Hole is a “Blue level” natural single track trail with rocks, roots, and switchbacks. Younger racers will only race on Lower Rabbit Hole (shorter and smoother than Upper Rabbit Hole). All racers are encouraged to pre-ride the trail before signing up.
Rabbit Hole and Lower Rabbit Hole will be open for freeriding everyday leading up to the event and we strongly encourage everyone entering the Next Gen race to spend time freeriding the trail. The trails will be closed to the public on Sunday morning for a mandatory practice session for all racers.
REQUIREMENTS TO RACE:
- USAC licenses are NOT required.
- Racing Age is your age as of October 13th, 2019.
- Race organizers reserve the right to not allow racers on course if they do not have the riding experience necessary or pose a risk to themselves and others.
