Mansfield Center, CT
Welcome to the 2nd Annual Root 66 Norcross Scurry Mountain Bike Race at the Boy Scout Reservation in Ashford, CT. This is a great course with a fair amount of climbing, twisting single track, and challenging rock gardens.
The CAT 3 and CAT 2 racers will enjoy a 4.2 mile loop and the CAT 1 and Pro riders will have an additional stretch of trail with a twisty climb at the start to make a 5.2 mile loop.
There may be modifications to the lap mileage as we spend more time on the course and get a feel for what the lap times will be.
This race is hosted by The June Norcross Webster Scout Reservation and supported by Nerac Earth Cycling.
About the camp:
June Norcross Webster Scout Reservation is located in scenic Ashford, Connecticut. Established in 1964, the reservation occupies 1,200 acres of land that is home to approximately 1,230 Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts each summer during its six-week season. Scouts stay in two-man wall tents and sleep on cots with mattresses. Three square meals are served daily in the Greer Dining Hall. The Reservation boasts its own lake, so swimming and boating are extra fun.
