Roanoke Parks and Recreation is teaming up with East Coasters Bike Shop to present Roanoke’s fifth 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, and at the end of the series an overall male and female winner will be named for each 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. 


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

Participant age will determine racing group based on 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 9-10 year olds age group, but a 9 year old cannot race in the 7-8 year olds race category.
