Shimano USA & Northern Peaks Alliance present the 2017 Silver Race Series! Returning for it's third year the SRS will feature two distinct mini-series, a 3 race downhill series and a 3 race Super-D Series. Pros can compete in all six events to take the King or Queen of the Hill title. These races have a category for everyone, and a variety of courses to challenge all ability levels. So, if you’re new to this, expect to race against people of roughly your same age and ability level. Northern Peaks Alliance provides accurate chip based timing, with speedy online results, so you can just concentrate on your race run.
What on earth is a Super D? Super-D, or Super Downhill, is still mostly downhill, but with longer courses, slightly less technical terrain, and an occasional bit of pedaling. These races are best suited for trail, all mountain or enduro style bikes, but downhill bikes can still be competitive. These races focus on all around skills and endurance. Think of a single long enduro stage with anywhere from 1,500 to 3,500 feet of descent, and longer times than a traditional downhill. Courses may feature some fairly technical terrain, but there will be plenty of variety, so it doesn’t just cater to technical skills alone. This is a race against the clock.
How Downhill? With the addition of the Super D series, our Downhill races will refocus on more traditional length courses that are more technical and best suited for real Downhill bikes. That being said a shorter travel bike can still be competitive by those with the right skills depending on the category, and we offer multiple courses for the different categories whenever we need to. This is a race against the clock.
We will have separate overall point standings this year for both Downhill and Super-D Series! We will also be combining the two series and have Overall Points standings with Cash Prizes for PRO Male & Female King & Queen of the Mountain.
