What a great last race, we caught the dry window and got some primo dirt.
I wanted to wait until after Tuesday passed, just point out that it was dry yesterday, no threatening precip, no lighting, just a perfect night for a race… classic. Thanks for hanging in there this year through our cancellations & make-up nights.
Last race of the season, Tuesday night August 26 at Solitude Mountain Resort. This is for all the marbles – $6,500 in the purse & awards –
“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.
It’s a Big’n!
A new Solitude course for this Tuesday, a 1,200 climb, TO THE TOP, before a long technical descent Rock’n the full Kruzer trail. (course map below) If you pre-registered for last week’s race at Snowbird where we were rained out, you will have credit for your next race
Bittersweet, as the moisture was really needed, the trails needed it badly, the watershed needed it, my lawn needed it, but it’s a NO GO for tonight. Expect some epic conditions for riding after the trails soak it all up… just wait until the dirt is ready. If you’re curious about the trail conditions out there, because you don’t want to be “that guy” leaving a 3″ squiggled trench, update yourself via Mountain Trails, Basic Recreation or Corner Canyon Trails.
The 8k’ starts will officially start tomorrow night up at Solitude Mountain Resort.
Rain or Shine – Tomorrow night’s last race of the 2013 #MidWeekMTB -race series- is ON! We’ve got a contingency course, tents, BBQ, awards and good times planned. Bring your bike, some post race warming layers, your hunger and a hydration cooler – we’ll take care of the entertainment.
Race #11 had perfect conditions and here are the results, plus details on the last race, new killer podium design & end of year Plaques.
