KASK 2023 Winter Short Track Mountain Bike Series

Calling all mountain bikers! Come see us at the Winter Short Track Event from Start 2 Finish. We're so excited to see you all jump in the race and cheer you on at the Rock Hill Outdoor Center!

Start 2 Finish and the City of Rock Hill are working  hard to create a trail that's exciting for the race participants and spectators. Participants, based on category, will race 4 to 8 laps on the fast course. All of the events will be held at Rock Hill Criterium Course.

How to Ride in a Group

If you've ever been intimidated about going on a group ride, you're not alone.  Most group rides will have a quick orientation about how their group ride will work. So remember to your ride early so you don't miss any of that important information. In this video you will learn about how to ride your bike in a group setting.

Group Ride Etiquette

In this video, you will cover another important group ride function: etiquette. Group ride etiquette is about commodification and respect and it goes a long way with keeping you and your group mates safe.

What to Expect at a Demo Event

Demo Events are the perfect way to get to know a brand and check out the latest bike technology.  Demo-ing a bike is the ultimate test ride where you get to know a model up close and personal. You typically ride in the same terrain that the bike was designed for to get the full experience. It's important that you arrive to your demo event with your typical rider gear (clothing, footwear, pedals) to make sure you get the most out of your demo.
