AZ CROSS #2 – Absolute Bikes Flagstaff Frenzy

Registration is open:

http://arizonareg.com/viewevent.php?EC=159

And remains open right up through event day – registration closes 15 minutes before your scheduled start.
On-site registration and packet pick-up opens at 7:30 a.m.

New venue – http://coconino.az.gov/index.aspx?nid=279
Fort Tuthill County Park – link above. There is some minor road construction near the entrance to the Park. Give yourself at least two hours from Phoenix metro area. Google Maps says Exit 337 from I-17 N. The Park is located across the I-17 from the airport in Flagstaff. Turn left from the exit coming north on the 1-17.

Look for the AZ CROSS arrows to get you to the venue. The race will be at the horse track – look for the grandstands. Not a ton of elevation change on this course – but it will be technical – technical meaning twisty and turny. A few long power straights – and the surface is a mix of dirt, gravel and improved horse track surface. Maybe a sand box…..

Weather looks good so far – but be prepared for anything.

Absolute Bikes will be on-site for neutral support.
