Ground Breaking Mountain Bike Race: Inaugural Pinnacle Bike Championship

The World’s Most Spectacular Bike Race

After two years of planning and development, HQ Entities, Inc. announces the creation of its inaugural event for the Pinnacle Bike Championship. With a groundbreaking multi-rider format and revolutionary course design, Pinnacle is set to be the world’s most spectacular bike race.

The racing format consists of 10 riders competing head-to-head down the mountain, dropping 1,500 vertical feet in under three minutes. The first rider across the finish line wins! Riders will navigate a custom built track with ample passing room on natural, rough and steep terrain, launching gap jumps of up to 70 feet, plunging off 40 foot drops and reaching speeds of 60mph.

Competition in the Pinnacle Bike Championship is by invitation only, with 100 invites going out to the greatest riders on the planet. Fans will enjoy watching, as 100% of the track is on open slopes offering unprecedented viewing access for spectators and on TV. All of this combines to provide a never-before-seen spectacle showcasing what can be achieved on a bicycle when pushing the limits of the equipment and riders’ abilities.

“We wanted to create a spectacular race here in the USA that would entertain bike fans like nothing out there and showcase the talents of the riders in a head-to-head format," said Mark Rodgers, Pinnacle founder. "These world-class athletes are skilled bike handlers who, with the advanced technology of their equipment, have the ability to blow people away. With the world's best riders set to race, Pinnacle is an event no one will want to miss."

This first-ever Pinnacle race will take place at Waterville Valley Resort, New Hampshire, USA on September 19-20, 2014. Waterville Valley is easily accessible from major cities with a combined population of 20+ million. Located in the heart of the White Mountain National Forest, Waterville Valley Resort has worked closely with the U.S. Forest Service to plan the event.

“Waterville Valley Resort is very excited to be hosting the Pinnacle Bike Championship, one of the most elite downhill mountain bike races in the world,” said Chris Sununu, CEO of Waterville Valley Resort. “This event will be unlike anything many people have ever seen. It will be an incredible weekend of outdoor entertainment.”

Tickets for the Pinnacle Bike Championship can be purchased at starting on August 1, 2014.
