Time to start planning your 2017 race season!

First timer? Come give it at try, you won’t be alone. Juniors, gain race experience and make some new friends. Weekend Warriors, battle it out with your buds, we’ve adjusted the age brackets. Elite & Veteran Racers, we’ve got some new venues and courses to keep things interesting.

Take your best 5 of 6 races for a chance at the series overall, all races equal points.

2017 Schedule

January 14 – McDowell Meltdown
January 28 – Estrella Hedgehog Hustle
February 11 – Lake Havasu Havoc
March 25 – White Tank Whirlwind
April 15 – Prescott Punisher
May 13 – Flagstaff Frenzy
May 14 – Super D*
June 3 – Flagstaff Team Relay*

* Series points not awarded

Changes & Additions:

We have added an Intermediate SS category which will race a shorter distance than the Expert SS category.

We have also adjusted the beginner and intermediate age groups so they align, making it easier to upgrade and remain in the same age group (19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50+).

With the increasing number of junior races, we’ve broken the categories into 2 year age groups and added a 6-8 category. This will help shrink the gap between kids on the younger/older side of their respective categories. Junior categories will consist of 6-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14.

Lastly, we will again offer a discount (excluding juniors, you only pay $20 per race) when registering for the entire MBAA series before Jan. 12 2017 ($200 for 6 races + a free t-shirt).
