New course video for Z6 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 2018 aka Z7 will be a challenging and fun race with a few updates from last year's version.  If you've been to any of our previous versions(especially last year!) 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 all of the best features .  This year, like last year, you will be climbing up the usually tricky off camber downhill on the far side of the pond. From there you will blast down a new hill and bee line into the woods and through the campground.  Exit the campground  and drop into the woods by way of a tricky little descent and stream crossing(bridge included).   You'll make your way to our runup, "Wallderbrook", a steep affair that may haunt your dreams and will definitely make you pine for the infamous Barlow runup.  After the run up you'll quickly transition into the main grass bowl where cornering and acceleration skills are challenged. A couple of short burst climbs line the bowl along with 2 sand sectors  . 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 last 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.  Good news, we were able to do away with the $5 parking fee this year, leaving you a little spare dough for food and beer!   See you there.
