    Raccoon Mountain Super-D & Soul Sucker Time Trial



    We have this little trail system in Chattanooga...you might've heard of it...it's called Raccoon Mountain. Us here at SORBA Chattanooga think it's kind of a big deal. So what do you do when you have regionally recognized trail system in your backyard??? Give people an excuse to come and ride it that's what!!! SORBA Chattanooga is proud to announce the 2014 Raccoon Mountain Super-D & Soul Sucker Time Trial race weekend on July 12th & 13th. An epic trail system deserves an epic race; so we've lined up swag raffles, vendors, custom event swag, food, and TWO races. Swag raffles to take place on Sunday; prizes include a Lynskey Pro29 or Pro650, your choice.

    This weekend will mark the first ever event on the recently expanded trails on Raccoon Mountain. The completion of Livewire and High Voltage mark a huge achievement for SORBA Chattanooga. This expansion adds 8.5 miles to the existing trail system. Both the Super-D and the Soul Sucker TT will use these new trails to create one of the most fun and difficult races you'll ever experience.

    Super-D

    The Super-D course will start at the entrance of Livewire at the top of the gravel road. From there, riders will continue straight down Livewire Phase 1 and 2. The finish line is at the intersection of Livewire and High Voltage. Course is 5.5 miles long with 1200 feet of descent. The first 2 miles of the course are seriously fast, followed by a several miles of tough rocky and rooty trail, finishing with another mile of fast descent. You are allowed two runs of this course.

    Soul Sucker Time Trial

    You have two distances to choose from, 20 or 40 miles. Both distances will give you a chance to taste all the new trails at Raccoon Mountain. With over 4000 feet of elevation gain, this trial will test your resolve. There will be 4 sag stops setup along the course. Three of them will have water, sports drink, and food; one will have water only. Entrance into the Soul Sucker Time Trial gets you a custom 64oz Growler...beer not included.

    I rode the Live Wire extension and High Voltage today. You'd better bring your A-game for this one.

    The Soul Sucker Time Trial on Sunday, July 13 has been canceled due to lack of interest in this event. The Super-D is still on for Saturday, July 12, itís going be a blast and we look forward to seeing you there. Stay tuned for additional info.

    Our final event in the Lynskey-SORBA Chattanooga Race Series, the Lula Lake Land Trust 5pts 50 will take place October 11, as scheduled and will see our series champs crowned.

    The primary function of the series is to feature trail systems SORBA Chattanooga has built and/or maintains, provide quality events for locals and to provide a revenue source to pay for the continued construction and maintenance of mountain bike trails in our community. Thanks again for your continued support, we will continue to bring fun and challenging events to Chattanooga and hope to see on a trail soon.

    Sincerely,
    Michael Long
    Race Director, SORBA Chattanooga

    Signed up!

    Have ridden the main loop there before a few times, but none of the "newer" stuff. We went and shuttled Livewire a couple times Saturday......what a great run that is!

    Can't wait for the race next week.
