Enduro-style XC MTB race to be held on the single-track flow trails and XC trails at Pocahontas State Park in Chesterfield, VA. 100% of the profits will go to Friends of Pocahontas State Park for funding the Pocahontas Courthouse Rd. parking lot project!
The POCA GO! race will involve multiple timed stages on downhill portions of the Swift Creek trail system with non-timed transfer segments in between. Racers will start in 30 second increments. There will be categories for expert, sport, beginner, and youth. For the first stage, racers will be seeded by category and subcategory, and then by date of registration (the earlier you register, the better starting position you will get within your category/subcategory). All categories will complete the same timed stages but transfer stages will be shorter for beginner and youth. Expert and Sport categories will ride approximately 15 miles total (timed and transfer stages included) and Beginner and Youth categories will ride approximately 9 miles total. Timed stages will account for approximately 5 miles of the total. Timed segments will likely include Bell Lap, Corkscrew, Blue Jay Way, and Blueberry downhill. Course is subject to change at the discretion of the course director, due to trail conditions, etc.
