The sign says it all
Sunday, May 17, 1998, Grand Vue Park, Moundsville
Grand Vue Park Mountain Bike Challenge

What a beautiful day and a beautiful park for mountain bike riding. The racers at Grand Vue Park were treated to a meticulously groomed 5 mile course that contained plenty of wooded single track along with mowed fields that opened the course up for spectacular mountain top views.

The racing consisted of staggered starts for a variety of classes from the single lap novices to the 4 lap experts. For the young racers they even threw in a 2.5 mile race for the 10-15 year-olds.
