From amazing Mudshark beer, to a course that felt like you were riding on the moon, to phenomenal volunteers, to outstanding local support – Havasu rocked! We had a great turn out, and race reviews. We look forward to re-visiting Havasu in 2015. Special thanks to Craig Raney (Attack the Crack – this fall same course longer ride), Larry (the stand up paddle king), to Mark (rodeo grounds guy) Elaine from the CVB, and all of the other local support. Thank you!

Nathan_Miller@WTWe had over 500 riders out at White Tanks, which was about 100 more than 2013 – THANK YOU!  We are excited about the increase in participation and see some new blood (literally and figuratively) at the events.  We know most of you will be headed down to Epic Rides 24hrs in the Old Pueblo – we hope you all ride safe and have a great time.  After OP, we will then be heading out to Lake Havasu – our first time at that venue.

Maps due this week.
Hotel list due this week.
RV camping (no hookups) available on site.
Reminder – ALL team rosters MUST be finalized before this event.
