The DelmarvaJobs.Com Cross Country Super Series will get off to a "rocky" start on Mother's Day, May 13 with the "On the Rocks at French Creek" mountain bike race. The race is run through the 7,474 acre French Creek State Park in southeastern Pennsylvania, which features over 40 miles of trails. It also counts toward the Cannondale Cup team Super Series.

"This year's race will be a one lap format with distances of 6 miles for Beginners, 12 for Sport and 18 miles for Expert and Elite racers," said Race Director Scott Wipperman. "Because the distances are going to be shorter this year we've decided to throw every bit of French Creek nasty at you that we could find. The course will be very technical with more than 2,500 feet of climbing for the experts and elites."

Organizers report that racers will have time to race in the morning and make mom's house for dinner to celebrate the holiday. However, the race will only be held in dry weather. Park management said they cannot risk major trail damage at the beginning of the park's prime recreational season. Therefore, no pre-registrations are being accepted.
