We had an amazing turnout at Estrella, with close to 440 riders, amazing sponsors and phenomenal weather…not to mention HERO dirt. We saw some of the fastest times we have seen in quite some time on the long loop, thanks in large part to great conditions, as well as the trail work last week. Thanks again to Pedal Bike Shop for the refuel support, Fluid, Kate’s Real Food, Giant Bicycles of Scottsdale, Trek Bicycles of West Phoenix, Bicycles of Phoenix, and Lifetime Events for the outstanding support – we could not do it without you!

We had a great day out at McDowell and hope you did too. The first race is our biggest (typically, but you can help break that trend) and we (as a board) walked away pretty happy with the feedback we received from athletes and the sponsors. We realize there are always things we can do to improve and will be working on that as we move on to Estrella on January 31. All told we had over 640 riders out at McDowell and a ton of smiles. Results are up (thank you Mangled Momentum) and pictures from the day will be coming from TR-IAG Sports Photography shortly (they took over 13,000 pics) .
Special thanks to presenting sponsor Bicycles of Phoenix, and refuel sponsor The Pedal Bike Shop, as well as Kate’s Bars for supporting the event and the riders with great support.
