Roanoke Parks and Recreation is teaming up with East Coasters Bike Shop and Star City Cycling to present Roanoke’s sixth annual FREE mountain biking race series. The Fishburn Youth Mountain Biking Race Series is aimed at novice riders from ages 2 to 14. Riders will compete on a short, spectator-friendly course against youth their own age and skill level. Medals will be awarded to the top three boys and girls in each age group.  On-site registration opens on the race dates at the lower Fishburn Park shelter at 4:30 p.m.; races start promptly at 5:30 p.m. If you register online, please check in with registration prior to lining up to race. 


2 to 4-year-olds (on balance bikes)
5 to 6-year-olds
7 to 8-year-olds
9 to 10-year-olds
11 to 12-year-olds
13 to 14-year-olds

Participant age will determine racing group based on the date of birth on race day. Participants can choose to “race up” a category, but cannot race down a category. For example, an 8-year-old can choose to race in the 9 to 10-year-olds age group, but a 9-year-old cannot race in the 7 to 8-year-olds race category.
