This is a diagram of the track at Plaza Cycle Motocross Park, part of the Rocky Mountain Raceways complex in West Valley City, Utah. The course is laid out on a hillside with the shaded portion being the steeper part of the course. In general, when riders are moving toward the top of the diagram they’re going uphill, and they’re going downhill when moving toward the bottom. The couse is relatively level from side to side. It’s a little more than a mile in length and has numerous turns and jumps. Most races consist of four laps. The PeeWees run an abbreviated course on the bottom half of the track.
