    yep, this is a bump to keep this thread on page one!

    this race is a lot of fun for all the racers because so many parents bring those racers out..... help spread the word and don't be shy about bringing out the kids to pre-ride the kid's korse and learn the lines; the korse is slightly different than prior seasons

    just under 30 days until the first race start for boys and girls, k - 1

    the kid's korse is always open for training, but if you can't make it there, get out and ride at your local single track to be ready for some seriously fun racing .....

    and take some time to work with the kids to tune that bike up so it's race ready, the grasshopper has noticed that most of the fastest bikes took off extra things like kickstands to make the bike lighter so they will be faster and safer

    no exact address for the park, use your gps or google map skills to locate the intersection of courter lane and mountain ave in north caldwell, check out hilltopgrasshopper.com for a strava and garmin route map and more info on the kid's korse

    pre riding the korse is a wise move for all riders to learn the lines and get comfortable with the distance they'll have to ride.....it's totally doable while being challenging, kids dig the kid's korse
