One 6hr down. On to the next one.
Hope its not a bad time to bring up a 6hr and that everyone is recovered from the weekend.

Only 3 weeks to 6 in the Hood. We hope you have it marked on you calenders.

I'm not a good sales guy so there's not much I can say to convince you to sign up except that we've always received great reviews for our events and we try hard to improve each time out.

Great event yesterday, I thought the course was perfect for a solo SS attempt. Not too much climbing and the rocks were a pleasant change from our WNY roots.

Look forward to next year

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

Awesome job Dave LeSS, first place is Single Speed Open!
Like Dave says, awesome course with a great mix of everything and a pleasant change from the roots. Great race switching to a 6 hour format, well run and most of all it had a great friendly vibe as all the SHCC events have.

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.
