SUPER D

The 2017 Super D is made possible by the generous contributions from Progressive Trail Design and Adventure Subaru. The course is designed to be a cross over of downhill and cross country riding. There are roll around options for all advanced downhill features. There is nothing on the Super D course that one wouldn’t encounter on the XC course unless they choose to negotiate the features on the DH Course. Full face helmets are not required and many Super D riders compete with the same bike and gear they use for cross country competition.

Course Description
1 3/4 miles long. The course is very XC friendly but will challenge the best XC rider and benefit the downhill skilled riders who take the big boy lines. Although pads and full face helmets are not required they are recommended for those who plan on catching air and bombing the downhill sections.

Omni Competitors

Must register online or at the short track Friday evening to be eligible for Omni events not including the Downhill Duo. Downhill Duo will have registration both Friday night and Saturday morning.

The Super D is part of both the Downhill Duo and the Omni. Check the Omni page for details.

The run will start from the Harlee Inn Hotel on hwy. 62 across from Angler’s Restaurant and Pub. Starting at the top of the downhill course, shredding gnarly features (refer to DH course description). It will stay on the DH course until it comes to Miner’s Rock trail crossing after the rock drop section. The Super D course will utilize the middle rock drop into the left hand berm and NOT the big drop like on the DH course. Turning left on Miner’s Rock the course follows it for approximately a half mile of rolling bench trail. It will then turn right at the big sink hole and onto a forest road as Miner’s Rock trail heads left. The forest road descends steeply and comes to a power line. There will be small jump that can be easily rolled if you hit the brakes prior or launched if you let loose. The course then descends steeply again along a washed out forest road with ledges and loose rocks. Near where the road junctions with the park entrance road the course dives right into the woods on spur single track. It stays right as it joins a spur and runs through a tunnel under the park entrance road. It then takes a final right onto a service road and runs about 150 feet to the DH and Super D finish line and going around, not over, the finish line gap jump. Roughly one and three quarter miles total.
