What is Short Track?
Short track is spectator friendly mountain bike racing. We have a great loop at Robert Hunter
West Park in Saskatoon (across the street from École River Heights School). Try out Mountain
Bike cross country racing right in the city. Races are approx 10 to 25 minutes long (based on
age/ability) and everyone is welcome.
● Fast and Fun MTB races
● Great for kids and speed demons alike.
● Rider friendly courses.
● Kick/balance bikes, 12″, 16″, 20″, 24″ wheels all work great on the course, and any bike
in safe working order will do! (No training wheels please)
Fees & Registration
Register by April 15, 2020 to save $5 with our early bird rate!
Entry fee is $40 for all categories, for the entire series!
All racers will need to hold a Saskatchewan Cycling Association general or racing membership (this is for insurance purposes). The earlier you register, the more races you can enjoy! This is all integrated into a single transaction online via the CCN website where you can purchase the series and membership at the same time. If you already have a 2020 SCA membership or race licence, you will only be required to purchase the series registration. All registrations will be through CCN, there will be no cash registration on site. Not sure if your child will like the series? Try out a race for $15 (subject to space available in their category). If they like it, you can pay the difference and race the entire series. If it’s not their thing, leave with a number plate, and try again next year. All categories are $40 for race series (PCDI club membership included) + 2020 SCA membership.
