WORS Mega Event, the Subaru Cup, moves to a new venue and, with a revamped and expanded schedule of events, increased sponsorship, access, staffing, and elevated race status, promises to be more fun filled than ever before. Subaru Cup Schedule
For cross-country mountain bike racers, the Stage Race & Omnium formats return with some changes. The order of events will change with the Subaru Cup Cross-Country on Saturday afternoon, the Outback Super D/Time Trial on Sunday morning and the Impreza Short Track* on Sunday afternoon. Although competitors may enter any or all the events, those that usually only enter the cross-country will want to expand their horizons by giving the Outback Super D / Time Trial and Impreza Short Track* a try (*not available to Citizen or USA Cycling Beginner racers). The exhilarating Outback Super D / Time Trial emphasizes technique over endurance as racers throw down their best on a course that is 70% gravity assisted with race times for the fastest at less than fifteen minutes. USA Cycling Mountain Pros, Semi-Pros and Experts will be racing for a combined purse of $5000 with payouts for each event and the overall for the Subaru Cup Stage Race. They will also be racing for points as this will be a level three event on the newly introduced USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Calendar.
Gravity riders will want to plan on two days of great riding and competition with the feature event being Sunday
