May 17, 2014 (XC, MA)
May 18, 2014 (Super D)
Fort Valley Trail Network, Flagstaff, AZ
The finals! The last race of the 2014 MBAA season this can make or break a few titles. Riders will be at altitude, and climb a bit. Expect pine trees a plenty and some descending that will give you wry grin. The 2013 Flagstaff Frenzy will be moving back the Mount Elden and Dry Lake Hills Trails. We will be staging at the Ft. Valley Trail Head off of Highway 180, but utilizing a combination of the Ft. Valley Trail System and some of Flagstaff’s best trails in the Mount Elden/Dry lake Hills area, including Sunset, Little Bear and Schultz Creek. Course maps are UP!
Fort Valley Trail System is located 7 miles northwest of Flagstaff off highway 180. From Route 66 turn north on Humphrey’s St. then turn left at the third signal onto highway 180. Drive approximately 4.7 miles to Forest Road 164 B. Turn right, and drive about 400 feet then make another right on to a dirt road where the trailhead will be straight ahead about 100 feet. Map
