Ender's Fault Trail, Woolly Hollow State Park, Greenbrier, AR

Presented by Central Arkansas Off Road Group and Bell and Company: (the proceeds from this non-profit event benefit NICA/Conway Bearcats and COG)

Get ready for the new and improved 2021 Gnome:    New and redesigned trails.  An awesome kids  1 mile course.  Stryder races for young and old.   Have an old bmx bike?  Take off the pedals and join in on the fun just before the real racing starts.  

Also, we are working with the park and have blocked the campground for reservations for "racers only" in hopes we can correct a lot of the parking issues and logistics issues we have seen in the past.

Please contact Woolly Hollow State park for your campground reservations. (501) 679-2098 (Note if we don't pack out the park in reservations they will start releasing spots)

We will have a  5.1 mile TT on Saturday at 3 pm. There will be awards  for the top 3 male and female and 5 AMBCS bonus points on the line for all finishers. The finish order will also set the callup for Sunday's XC race.  Also new, is a non Sanctioned non USAC/AMBCS E bike class.  This will be an open male/female class. No points will be awarded for the season for this class.  

There will be a new course with some new trails. Improved kid's courses and the race loop is a NICA friendly type loop for the junior racers. Bring your Stryder bikes for a NASCAR style "Stryder" race on Sunday am for the little ones.
