Pollan Paving

These guys stepped up to help make sure the course was patched up and safe to ride. We can't thank them enough for their hard work.

The Course

This course is tactical and technical. The 1 mile counter clockwise loop features a short steep start/finish hill, a super fun swooping downhill, and a flat twisting run in to the base of the hill. It’s no boring 4 corner crit!


The park roads will be closed closest to the course so we will have a private entrance off Mullins Station near the cross country course. You MUST park in the XC lot or you will get locked in the park after hours.

The Hammer

The ultimate award of supernatural proportions. The Buffvelo Hammer will be a traveling award for the team with the best results and the best participation. The winning team at the end of the season will have their name inscribed on the hammer and they will protect it with their life for 1 year.
