WNYMBA has created this Wednesday night race series to provide mountain bike enthusiasts a fun and exciting way to train and test themselves on weekly basis. These races are also great for training and preparing for the long mountain bike riding and racing season. They were also designed to attract newer and younger riders providing a beginner’s level of entry into mountain bike racing. For this year we will have 5 races, the best 4 finishes will determine the series winners. Also, racers signing up for the 5 race series will receive a race series t-shirt, along with a series discount. This series discount/t-shirt offer will be available up until the first race.
Using our Webscorer timing and registration system, we able to provide quick and easy online registration and instantaneous results. We will also be using Wescorer’s new series manger which will keep track of the series standings. Registration for this year's series will only be available online and will remain open up until 5:00pm on race day. All racer info, waiver signing and money transactions will all be handled through our online registration pages. Race day check-in period is from 5:00pm to 6:15pm where racers will get their number plates. After a quick rider's meeting we will begin racing at 6:30 sharp.
The series race dates will be: May 22nd, May 29th, June 5th, June 12th & June 19th. A series ending ceremony party will take place after the last race at Sprague Brook Park. The course will basically be the same as last year, using single-track located on the west side of the park. The course length for one lap is just over 4 miles, with beginners doing 2, sports doing 3 and experts doing 4 laps. We will have 7 age groups for the three classes: 19&UNDER, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60&OVER and FEMALE OPEN. The FEMALE OPEN category has no age groups.
Racers competing in both this series and Holiday Valley's series will receive some type of recognition. You will need to finish 4 races in each series to be eligible. Combined series awards will be handed out at the final HV race, July 31st.
We are still working on the prize details and will post any new info as it becomes available. The cost of the series discount/t-shirt deal is $75 and will be available up until the start of the first race. Only racers that pre-register for the series will get a t-shirt, so don’t miss out. Registration pages for each individual race in the series will be made available one week prior to each race, at a cost of $17/race.
