SUN N SPOKES FORAY – DONE

Posted: April 20, 2014 in News/Updates, Racing

ONE TO GO!

C Utley catching airWe had an amazing time in Sierra Vista with outstanding weather, a great turnout of athletes and one of our best showings of Military riders that we can recall.  Thank you again to Sun N Spokes for their support, Global Bikes for providing us with such great rehydration and refuel service, and all the volunteers that helped make the day go smoothly.  We have one event to go in Flagstaff  – the finals.  Be sure to sign up to race (or ride the Super D on Sunday), volunteer and get your hours dialed in – there are plenty of trail work days listed (front page left) and still some much needed slots for volunteers in Flagstaff – sign up early and online – makes it easier for all of us to delegate.

 

SunNSpokesForayatFortAs 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!

MARC Wrapped Up!

00.MARC STARTWell 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!

MARC Course Revision!

Posted: March 22, 2014 in News/Updates, Racing

MARCinthePark(1)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!
