The Cannonsburg Double Trouble is the best of both worlds with single track and gravel roads in one race! This event will put your technical skills and your horse power to the test as you challenge yourself with 32 miles of twisty / flowy single track and the rolling hills of Kent County’s best gravel roads.
The start of the race will begin with a mass start at Cannonsburg Ski Area and travel North on roads to the private single track of Pando Ski area and Camp Rogers (approx. 5 miles). You’ll do a lap at Pando and head East and South to the gravel roads of Lowell and Ada before finishing with more single track at Cannonsburg Ski Area (approx. 5 miles).
