XTERRA Cameron Park Off Road Triathlon
Aug 15, 2014    | Cameron Park (Emmons Cliff Drive)
Cameron Park is the ultimate destination when it comes to outdoor adventure in the Heart of Texas. The course will take your breath away as you go up and down climb after climb, in and out of cedar breaks and into dark bamboo forests. "There is nothing else like this anywhere in the country," according to Bike Magazine. The trails can be screaming fast as you swoop down the berms on Vortex or they can have you gasping for air as you slowly climb Highlander and Erect. Rocks, roots, limestone ledges, tight twisty turns, short power climbs, narrow bridges, fast descents, this course has got it all! XTERRA Cameron Park is the fourth of five races in the Texas Series. See website for schedule.
