Road to Ruin race

LONDONDERRY — Get ready to take a road trip for Magic's newest event in its trilogy of non-sanctioned extreme ski/ride competitions that started with TUCK IT on Dec 31st and ends with Master of the Mountain on March 2nd.

It's the series debut on February 2nd of the "Road to Ruin."

Presented by Two Roads Brewery, "Road to Ruin" is a throwback to the classic 80's ski movie Hot Dog: The Movie, with a flat-out race top-to-bottom on double-back diamonds (no gates and on trails that will be open only to the competitors during the event).

The twist is that on this steeply-pitched road, it will be a "mass-start" and finish and the first across the finish line wins.

There will be heats of 8-10 competitors grouped by age and gender; all heat competitors will start at the same time and will race each other down Witch, then taking a right turn down Black Line where the finish line will be set up when Black Line intersects with Hocus Pocus; the first to cross the finish is the winner of that heat and each heat winner heads to the finals; the final championship run resumes back up at the start line on Witch where there will be another mass-start of all heat winners (8-10 heat winners); the top 3 finishers of the final run win their portion of the $1,500 cash purse for Road to Ruin; the winners of each heat also receive medals and prizes.

Road to Ruin is open to 100 entries with a minimum age of 10 years old.

Online registration ends February 1 at 5 p.m. Entry fee is $40 and a discounted lift ticket of $40 will need to be purchased. Day of registration on February 2 will be allowed if there is room at a $50 entry fee, but must be signed-up by 10 a.m. A Road to Ruin t-shirt is included for each competitor. Registration/bib pick up is from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Magic's ticket office.

The event is sponsored by Two Roads Brewery, Bern Unlimited and Suburban Ski & Bike.
