Pats Peak Downhill Thrill

2-Day Event:
Saturday: Practice for paid entrants only
Sunday: Downhill Thrill Race

USA Cycling DH State Championship Event.
Qualifier to USA Cycling MTB National Championships.

Though not an official Eastern States Cup (ESC) event this year, the Downhill Thrill will be supported by the MAXXIS ESC crew to provide an event to qualify racers for the USA Cycling MTB National Championships since the race is a USAC National Championship qualifier.

  • Downhill racers will take the chair lift up to the top of the mountain and race down the course one at a time against the clock for the quickest time to the bottom of the course.
  • Two different tracks with a common finish, total time for both runs will determine the winners.
  • The two tracks will finish in the DH camping area, complete with berms, jumps and other features.
  • The triple chairlift that departs from the same DH Camping Area will be used.
  • New this year: This event will be timed with LIVE ATHLETE TRACKING by TRIMOM Timing Company:
