Photography from the Charlotte Mountain Bike racing group's Winter Short Track 2009 series at Charlotte North Carolina's Renaissance Park. The mountain biking short course is considered a unique style of racing in the Charlotte area. Short-track mountain bikers race on a 3/4 mile trail with bank turns. It's a cross between a criterium, BMX, cyclo-cross and single-track racing. The mountain bike event is very fast and spectator friendly. Renaissance Park Mountain Bike Trail is a six-mile long, single track loop with intermediate difficulty.
