The Junkyard Dog starts at 10 am with a frantic mass start. Cyclists peel out onto a fast road section before they enter the twisting, log-strewn trails of the lush, forested Bike Park. The SORCE trailwork volunteers have been grooming the course for months, and it provides plenty of opportunity for competitors to test their technical skills and racing prowess. The tight trail network is also an awesome venue for spectators to check out the action.
