2023 Black River Grand Prix
June 10 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Black River Grand Prix is back! Join Craftsbury Outdoor Center on Saturday, June 10, 2023 for the Black River Grand Prix, a celebration of fast racing, big loops, varied terrain, and fun on bikes in the woods. The format is simple: Sunday is a mass start on one big lap. This ain’t XCO, this is VT mountain biking – flow, tech, jank, doubletrack, and even a dirt road or two – there’s something for everyone.
The 2023 Black River Grand Prix field will head off at 9am on a ~25k (~16mi) course featuring nearly all the riding the Center has to offer. The race never loops back into the stadium, so once you’re gone, you’re gone (though we will have a spot close by where you can stash feeds). First one back wins. We’re playing it close to the vest when it comes to the course layout, but rest assured almost all of it will be fun (what’s a race without a little suffering, right?).
Price & Registration
Sunday’s Grand Prix will be $40 for open racers, $25 for current college students, and $20 for juniors (ages 18 and under). $12 of every open entry fee will go towards prize money for the open category ($3 to the male and female winners, $2 for second place, and $1 for third place). Juniors are only eligible for prizes, not cash.
