The fourth annual VisitPA.Com stage race and festival returns to the Oesterling Farm in Marysville, Pennsylvania, this weekend June 29 - July 1.

One highlight of the event is an extra speed event, a night-time individual time trial for those who want to do something a little different or who aren't morning people. Another is the bike toss, in which competitors will awkwardly heave a bike as far as possible. Of course they don't use a nice bike for this event, but instead use one of those department store bikes look like racing mountain bikes but gets bent if actually ridden in the woods.

Mid Atlantic Super Series Media Director Ken Getchell said "the toss" is an event that could only happen at a mountain bike race, "It would never work at a road race. At least the mountain bikers have some upper body development. You look at some of those road racers and it would be like a piece of cooked spaghetti trying to throw a meatball."
