New course video for Z5 below!

The Rebound/Tireless Velo gang is thrilled to bring you this gem of a course at what we think is one of the nicest venues out there.  Zaaldercross 2016 aka Z5 will be a challenging and fun race with lots of updates from last year's version.  If you've been to any of our previous versions you'll know we tend to favor tough courses with lots of transitions and skills required, but wide and safe racing lanes.  This course is a blast to ride, let alone race on, but mark our words, we're pretty sure you'll find it to be one of the toughest races of the season.  Good hard, fun.  We've brought back most of the fun features but gone from previous versions is the narrow gravel start chute and is replaced with a wide grassy slight uphill(provided it isn't raining cats and dogs).  In addition to the the  sand section in the upper bowl right near the pits we've added another short sand sector which will require smooth handling and power as it quickly tracts into a short steep uphill.  Speaking of short steep climbs, we got a few more of those too, giving you ample opportunities to drop your buddies.  Our runup, "Wallderbrook", a steep affair that may haunt your dreams and will definitely get you ready for Barlow the following week, is back for sure and once again is sponsored by Horst Toe spikes........you're gonna need them.  The course will definitely reward the fittest and most skilled riders but is not at all intimidating.  We look forward to seeing you out there.  Below is a video preview of this years course and will give you a feel for what Alderbrook Park is like as well.   And if the the killer course isn't enough to get you out there just remember all the other wacky attractions at Alderbrook park like pink lemonade fountains, bounce house, petting zoo, pirate ship, great food, snacks, and of course, beer.  Be aware there is a $5- parking fee at Alderbrook so bring a little cash along.   See you there.
