Spring Thaw Mountain Bike #2

This race is the second mountain bike race in the REV3 Adventure trail series. Located at The Greens @ Willowsford, you will be treated to a first class trail system that offers fast single track through Willowsford’s Conservancy areas that pass though open fields, pine forests and thick oaks groves.  Come an experience the best of Virginia’s country side on two wheels, at speed.

REV3 Adventure Trail Series

For 2013 REV3 Adventure is excited to bring you a new trail series geared toward the trail runner, mountain biker, or anyone who enjoys both. With two different locations and four different trails, you can come and race one event or tackle all eight to earn the title Trail Master. The series consists of four trail run events and four mountain bike events. We will crown a trail runner series champ, a mountain bike series champ, and–if you have the skills to race both on foot and wheels–the series champ of Trail Master.

With dedicated private single track trails at the Greens and at the Grant located at the Willowsford community in Loudoun County, the terrain is prime for fast times caught by a ChampionChip timing system. Post-race refreshments will be provided by Lost Rhino Brewery and Pizzeria MOTO. To round out the series, this fall we’ll have an Adventure Weekend, starting with a Sprint Adventure Race and Family Adventure Race on Saturday followed by the Trail Series Finale on Sunday. On Saturday night between the race days, enjoy free camping, bonfire, evening entertainment, geocaching, orienteering course, musical entertainment, movie, and exceptional hospitality and entertainment by Willowsford. Sound awesome enough for you?
