    Kid's Mountain Bike Race, Hilltop Grasshopper, Saturday, August 16, North Caldwell, N

    Yeah, it's an early announcement but with kids having rock star schedules, it's important to get this on everyone's calendar and in as many frontal lobes as possible.

    Get the kid's on those bikes and dreaming of shredding the Kid's Korse in the Hilltop Reservation. As always, the korse is always open for training, otherwise known as riding for fun with the kids. This is the only kid's mountain bike race in Essex county, take advantage of it!

    (There's also an earlier kid's race at Allamuchy Scout Camp on June 1, check out Jersey Rocks Junior XC Race)

    Registration opens at 7:30 AM and competition starts at 9:00 AM for the youngest competitors, K – 1st grade. Grade level is grade in Fall 2014. There is a $10.00 registration fee per participant which includes a bicycle technical inspection. Any bike in good working order is eligible to race.

    Classes for boys and girls K – 1st grade, 2nd – 3rd grade, 4th – 5th grade, 6th – 8th grade, with prizes for top 3 class finishers.

    Helmets are mandatory.

    Cheering, cowbells, whistles, those horn things from the world cup and bagpipes welcome.

    The spectator friendly course is next to the sports field parking lot on Courter Lane and Mountain Avenue in North Caldwell.

    Hope the weather and summer break has helped schedule time to get out training with the kids. The Kids Korse is in great condition and looks like it's been well used as it's hard packed and fast rolling.
    Help spread the word to get lots of other parents and kids to come out and enjoy a bit of racing fun.
