Sickbird & Snowbird

And the Clouds Parted

Posted by & filed under Mid-Week News, Race Results.

Mr. Sunshine showed up, the faucet turned off & the trails drained to the point of “RIP’N” – Sickbird conditions.

There was much doubt, especially after the last month of wet weather, but there was no cancelling this time. The kids had a great time on the new course and the main event participants enjoyed the challenging vert & technical descending.

Big thanks to Mark Miller Subaru, Backcountry.com, Scheels, Jaybird, VacasaRentals, KFM Brands & Big Big ups to Salt Cycles for the insane sponsored goods for the raffles & their unmeasurable stoke for the series.

We’ve got a couple of DNA Cycling Jerseys left

In Case You Didn't Know

Solitude Results

Posted by & filed under Mid-Week News, Race Results.

It’s nice to announce “We Have Results!” It seems so long since this was the case, with last couple of scheduled nights ending in rain-out cancellations.

So what’cha all think about The ‘Tudes Big Lap? Personally I really enjoyed racing on a new course, and to include such a nasty climb, well that was just plain awesomeness thrown in.

The big question, “what happens to those of us who decided to call it quits?” If you didn’t know, some racers reported seeing a flash in the sky (lighting) and chose to turn around & others got wind from those turning around that “the race has been called off”.  Unfortunately, neither Brooke or myself, the race coordinators, called off the race, so for those of you who did not complete the full course, you will receive a DNF.

This is our final decision. 

I hope the evening proved to be a fun & challenging evening regardless of the points accumulated or denied. *Note, the entire Men Pro division finished, Expert Women, all 3 Sport divs & Beginners need not worry, as the one lap was completed before the confusion.

Did you battle the climb with a fellow div racer?

Perfect, nominate them! These are special awards that are voted on by you, the racers. The nominee with the most votes will receive a fitting piece of gear. A couple of previous payouts – Most Mechanicals – Tubless Conversion setup, Biggest crash – DH armored shorts, KOM – grip tassels & a sick glitter seat :)
Nominate Some Racers!

Reminder, next week, we have moved our previously scheduled race from Solitude to Snowbird — So we will be at Snowbird next Tuesday, same course, expect an update on Monday regarding the evening’s details.
