Trifecta Returns to Crystal Mountain

Second Annual Downhill Race Series Begins August 17th


THOMPSONVILLE, MICH – Crystal Mountain and Corepower are proud to present the second annual Crystal Trifecta Downhill Mountain Bike Race Series. The first of three races will happen August 17, 2013 with a course preview at 11am and racing at noon.

The race series pits riders (13 years old and older) against trails carved out of the woods, hills, and ski runs of Crystal Mountain. Each of the three races is run on a different downhill trail, each one a challenging mix of tight turns, steeps, and jumps.

“We built the trails with one thing in mind, a great downhill experience for riders,” said Crystal’s Janice Davidson. “Each trail has its own flavor and its own technical challenges. It’s a great mix that makes for a fun series of races for the riders and the fans.”

The top three finishers of each race will be awarded medals, and the top three racers in the series will be given medals and additional prizes.

The second race of this year’s Crystal Trifecta will be September 14th; the third and final race will be October 19th- the same day as Crystal’s Peak 2 Peak Mountain Bike Classic.

Registration for each race is $20 or $50 for the three race series. To register, riders can call 800.968.7686, ext. 7500.
