Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club, Celebration, Fla., is utilizing its rugged terrain in a unique way. For the first time, portions of the resort and areas around the golf course will play host to a US Cycling Federation event.
The Central Florida Criterium Cup, an avant-garde mountain bike race, expects over 100 riders to participate and is put on by the Orlando Bike & Social Club. The two-day event is slated for Friday, October 30th and Saturday, October 31st.
The race will be an urban-style Criterium, and offers three divisions—beginners, sport, and expert. The 4.2 mile course consists of off-road terrain (grass, gravel, and sand) as well as paved path. Although none of the race will take place on the Mystic Dunes golf course itself, the layout of the course will be challenging, rugged, and provide racers a speed of up to 34mph.
“This will certainly be an event that will raise the bar in high class MTB,” said Herfel Torres of the Orlando Bike & Social Club. “Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club is the perfect venue, offering challenge and beauty with its magnificent terrain.”
