While WNYMBA members love racing in general and particularly those fine groups in Western New York like Single Track Racing and HeartRateUp who run races in WNY, WNYMBA doesn't actually run or sanction races ourselves and our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that. So there, we told you!

There's a lot of good MTB racing in WNY.  WNYMBA was started back in 1992 by a bunch of racers, and we ran the Raccoon Rally and Roots, Rocks, and Ridges races for many many years.

Today, the races are put on by two phenomenal local groups who are great WNYMBA supporters.  Some of the races these folks put on include the Sprague Brook series, the Single Track Stampede, the Raccoon Rally, and 6HOP.

Check out the options for racing at:

2013 WNYMBA Winter Fest Mountain Bike Race

In its second year, the Winter Fest Mountain Bike Race at Chestnut Ridge Park is sure to be hit once again.  The fact that most of the course is visible from the top near the casino will make this a great event to watch.  The race will be on a short-track course a little over a mile in length, with the first part going down the sledding hill.  COURSE MAP

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!

 
The Art of Passing and Being Passed

I’ve been racing mountain bikes since 2003. Obviously, I’ve had to pass other racers and based on my general lack of speed, I’ve been passed many, many times. Unlike many other disciplines of bicycle racing, passing and being passed during a mountain bike race can be stressful, generally because of the nature of the course. Single track typically is only wide enough for one bicycle so here’s a few things to remember that will make the passing/being passed experience safer and less stressful.

With the 2013 race season starting just after the holidays with the 2nd annual Winterfest Race in late January, I thought some discussions about racing/riding would be nice since the weather is not cooperating for riding.  To start it off, slower_than_u has written an article about passing, which touches on general race etiquette.  I have also started a new topic in the forums HERE, where anyone can go in and post a comment or question.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
