Jeep King of the Mountain course at The Canyons Resort opens for the public
(Park City, Utah) August 20, 2007 – Test your mountain biking skills on the official Jeep King of the Mountain course set up at The Canyons Resort. Ride the same course world-renowned riders tackled three weeks ago during stage one of the Jeep King of the Mountain race series.
The course is a steep run not for the faint of heart. Navigate a series of banked turns, tabletops, step-down jumps and rollers on your way to the finish line. The course has been described as the ultimate format for mountain bike racing and is one of the toughest challenges for bikers looking for a thrill in Park City. Slightly modified at the top, the course does not start in the Y-cross formation as it did for the professional racers, but rather is a single-track start. Access the course seven days a week via hiking or biking up the Holly’s Downhill trail.
Helmets are required on the course and like all mountain biking at the resort, The Canyons strongly suggests using protective equipment and using extreme caution while attempting this run.
