If you want to get your little "season" off to an early start, The Olympic Dirt Society will be hosting the Port Townsend Super D
PORT ANGELES SUPER-D ANOTHER Olympicdirtsociety PRODUCTIONDATE: FEB. 22ND: TIME: Practice @ 9AM, Racing @ 11AM(approx.)COST: $30, Includes practice, racing, and lunch.LOCATION/DIRECTIONS: This will be on the Foothills trails, south of Port Angeles. Follow Hwy 101 into town, go L on Lincoln St., past Albertsons take a R at the next light. At stop sign go L onto Black Diamond Rd. Follow for about 3-4 miles to Lake Dawn Rd., go L (turns into a dirt road). Follow about ½ mile and take your first road to the left.COURSE: The course will be mostly downhill (as you might expect), with couple of mellow climbs and one steep one. It ends with about 1.5 mile fast downhill. Approx 4 miles long, and very fast and flowy. This is a cross-country trail system that you can access anytime to practice as well, but shuttles will be limited to Sunday morning at this point. Course prep help on Saturday might(?) include a run or two, but only if you contact us prior to the weekend. This is the epitome of grass-roots racing, so, no license required, just sign a waiver, and if you are under 18, you must have a guardian to sign your waiver as well. Volunteers will be needed, so if you have any interest or know someone, please contact us via Special Thanks to the WA Dept. of Natural Resources for the use of these killer trails.
