WHAT IS A DIRT CRIT?
Dirt Crit is the renegade, “street” name for “Short Track” race.
Think of a MTB Race with short (1 to 1.5 mi) laps that pass by the start/finish line several times (every 6 min). Very spectator friendly.
The race goes by TIME instead of distance: how many laps can you do in the given amount of time? First to cross the line after time expires (+ 1 lap, the “bell” lap) wins.
The course is approximately 50% single track (with varying degree of diffculty) and 50% jeep road.

The course doesn’t play into anyone’s strength: you have to be fit to go fast on the jeep trail, and must have technical skills to get through the single track.

It’s a strategy match on wheels to balance technical skills and fitness against your opponents. Drafting is allowed. Outside mechanical support is allowed. You can even drop one lap for a mechanical and rejoin the race where you left off!

Most of all, it’s the most fun you’ll have going so hard. And this will make you a better, fitter rider.
