We’ve teased this a few times but now its almost May.  It’s time to get rid of all of those pesky derailleurs and get real.

The Zank crew has a great thing going in the Fall with their SSCX series. It’s a vibe we’ve wanted to bring to NEMTB for a long time and we’re happy to finally share the Zank SS MTB Series schedule with you all.


For this first year we’re getting our bearings. We tried to pick a schedule balanced across the Summer season with a good variety of courses. Zank will be taking over the SS class at these selected events. It will be one Open Class for Men and Women and in most cases (but not all) the SS class will race the Expert distance.  Like most CX Zank races in the Fall the front end of the race will probably be moving pretty fast but the middle and the back will be pure party.  Don’t get us wrong the front is still party but you need to work hard to get on that guest list.

In the Fall everyone is battling to wear the Vest. This Summer it will be all about the Belt.  The Men’s and Women’s series winners will be presented with a custom engraved Championship Belt and the title of Heavyweight SS MTB Champion of New England at the Barn Burner in August.
