KOLDWAVE III 40K is part of the Snow Crown 3 race series, sponsored by Broken Spoke Bike Studio.
Koldwave is staged at Snowkraft Nordic, and takes advantage of the areas wide ski trails to give riders a fast and hard trail base, while allowing ample room for passing. About 65 percent of the race course is double wide ski trail, with a mix of singletrack mountain bike trail added to test riders agility. The owner has been grooming XC ski trails for over 15 years and KNOWS how to groom snow and has the equipment to do it, so expect a well prepared course.
The signature 40K race is a 3 lap test of stamina over a 8.5 mile lap distance.. The real test comes in an old apple orchard, Angry Orchard, where maximum use was made of the hilly terrain. There are 6 climbs ranging from .15 to .25 miles that challenge even the best bikers. This year you'll find added features in the orchard such as massive berms, jumps and rollers, all of which will be easily rideable without jumping if desired.
