The Double Pole Derby is back! End 2017 in healthy, Birkie style!  Held at the American Birkebeiner Trailhead in Cable, the Double Pole Derby is a fundraiser for youth ski teams in the Hayward/Cable area.  Race on the Birkie Trail while supporting the future of skiing- a win-win for sure!  Middle School/High School races are classic; citizen/collegiate race is freestyle – that means – skate, classic or even double pole the entire course if you like.
