As of today – Wednesday April 16 at 5:52pm – we are still 100% go for Sierra Vista. We have been talking with the Fort, locals and our good friends and Sun N Spokes all week about the fire and watching the news. The Fort (at this time) as well as locals and the shop have stated that the smoke is blowing away from the course and we are still able to host the event. We will get another update on Thursday and advise if anything has changed using the usual social media (Facebook) as well as the website. All riders will get a communication from us regarding the event on Friday am. Thanks in advance for your support we look forward to a great event!
TEAM POINTS - Chasing3 for the record, did have the team points updated prior to today, we just posted it up late due to final 4, little babes, busyness of life and all the other excuses you can think of – regardless they are up on the results tab. Thanks for the patience.
VOLUNTEER HOURS – are also updated through MARC. We are missing a form from Estrella, once found we will update those hours as well. We have two races to go, and quite a few hours for trail/volunteer to cover – so, be sure to help out, sign up to volunteer (links on this page) and give back. There are plenty of trail work days coming up in the next few weeks as well – a few hours makes a big difference for the trail. Thanks in advance for the extra help.
SUPER D - yes it exists and yes it is back and yes it benefits FBO, but no, it is not part of series points. Registration tool has had an issue in the last 24hrs, but we expect it back on line shortly – limited to a few, so get in early. Super D page is here, go there meow.
Well the second annual MARC in the park presented by Global Bikes is done – we had about 240 riders in the event and feedback on the new course (thank you Swiss American). We dished out some awesome gift certs from Bicycle Ranch, Landis Cyclery, and a grip load of tires courtesy of Two Wheel Jones – all local bike shops you need to help support! The series has two races left - Sierra Vista (Foray at the Fort) on April 19 (1.5x points), and Flagstaff (Flagstaff Frenzy) on May 17 (did we mention a Super D that benefits FBO?). Don’t forget to get your volunteer/trail hour requirements lined up as we head towards the finals. Stay tuned as we finalize courses for Flagstaff, and dial in a few surprises!
Well, we got a call (this week) about a change that the County wanted, which forced a change (for the better) for the relay event next week. We revised the course to cut out the road and include more trail (always a good thing in our opinion). The end result – a smidge less distance (now 17 miles vs 18), more trail and more time in the saddle – estimate fast guys just over an hour – most about 1:25ish and a new person 1:40ish. We now will work on revising the course markings (news came AFTER we marked it). Course will be re-marc’ed (ha) on Wednesday March 26. Map is posted. Sorry for the last minute change, but it saves us money, gets you more time in the saddle, and more time on trail (vs road) – all good things!
