We are lining up some AMAZING sponsors for the 2015 season – which, will get cracked open in less than a week – specific date not yet verified.  All race dates pretty well set, and we are stoked to be heading into 2015 with a full board, and a full head of steam.  The NICA series concludes on Nov 9, and we plan on being there to help support – will you?  Come on out and grab a koozie!

For us to have a great series, make an impact on the trails, keep entries fees reasonable and help get you cool stuff – we need sponsors!  Sponsor packages (standard or custom) are available now!  Check out all the details on the Sponsor tab and pass it along to your employer, favorite local bike shop, or any other location/business that may have some interest in helping make the trails in Arizona awesome and support mountain biking!  Spread the word!

Well the voting is over and it came down to a board vote.  We are stoked to have as much interest as we did in the positions that were open and even happier that we have a full board for the first time in a few years.  Here are the new cast of characters that are joining the existing crew:

  • Marketing Director - Tim Racette
  • Membership Director - Sue Rawley
  • Recreation Director – Les Stukenberg

Thank you to Brandee Lepak for her years on the board  - she was an exceptional help in re-directing our board and helping us to grow individually, and as an organization.

We will give them some time before we “properly” induct them with the secret ceremony.  Thank you for voting.

FOTRThe fourth annual Fire On the Rim took place over the weekend.  The MBAA and the PSFR (Pine Strawberry Fuel Reduction) non-profits join forces to produce this event – and just about everyone in the local community comes out to volunteer, cheer, drink beer or ride in the event.  This year saw a 31% jump in registration with over 277 riders taking part in the event.  The 45 mile field was stacked with talent and local AZ rider Hunter Keating took the overall win in a tight finish.  The 30 miler was taken by another Arizonan – Brian Little, and the 15 mile was taken by MBAA board member Michael Melley.  The 45 mile relay was a battle, and in the end the locals from 87 Cyclery dominated the defending champs Team America.  In the end the event helped raise several thousand dollars for the non-profits, had 3 killer bands and phenomenal beer from THAT brewery.  We look forward to next year as this event continues to grow and impact the local community.  Thank you for your support.
