Opening Jeep 48Straight round schedule released

Vernon, New Jersey will host the first Jeep 48Straight round on August 22-23 at the Diablo Freeride Park at Mountain Creek. Organizers released the full schedule this week, and it will include racing, music and entertainment. Their objective is to empower people to celebrate and connect with the outdoor lifestyle.

Competitors such as World Champions Brian Lopes and Eric Carter, as well as former and current national champions Rich Houseman and Melissa Buhl, are a few of the elite athletes who have signed on to make a run for the title. Local professionals and semi-pros will also have a chance to grab one of the spots in the competition through an open qualifier which will be capped at 75 men and 25 women.

Other highlights include the Rookie Rally, where non-elite amateurs and club riders can test their mettle and earn prizes by trying to beat a blistering pace on the Indy Cross track set by one of the top riders in the sport. Plenty of other activities are also planned, like a Dirt Derby and concerts.

In addition to the first stop, others include The Canyons Resort in Park City, Utah, on September 19-21, and The Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo, California, on October 23-25.
