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

Rode the new race course by the XC hut, man, what a fun little course especially for my SS. Probably get smoked tomorrow by the gear heads, but you know what, I'm going to concentrate on the fun factor rather than trying to place all the time.

I was very surprised as to how bright my Bikeray lights compared to the German Lupines I had before. Same quality and brightness for about a third of the cost.

Sweet looking lights Garick if you've got the coin to spend, probably a step above in quality and performance too.

The chineese lumen ratings are for sure BS, no argument there.

Another light option is to pickup some of the super cheap Chinese made ones off ebay. I recently picked up two of these

I haven't got to run mine much yet but a friend who has one likes it a lot and hasn't had any issues with it.

Nothing against bikeray, I'm sure they are very nice lights, just throwing another cheap option out there.

If you're thinking about racing weeks 3 and 4 you'll have to run a light. Checkout BIKERAY Lights, great value and they work awesome. I will have my lights to show at this Wednesday's week 2 race. Here is the website: www.xecconamerica.com/

Remember that race #2 will be located on the east side of the park near the XC ski warming hut. Registration for race #2 in now open HERE. Race start time will be 6pm sharp. This is a shorter course (just under 3 miles a lap) that uses some of the XC ski trails and some single track. Long racers will do 4 laps and short racers will do 3 laps.

Good news my son and I stayed up late and may have figured it out, so we're going to give it a try tonight.

Sad day, we cannot figure out how to sync all the iPads for timing the downhill time-trial, a race within a race. So we will just time the race tomorrow like usual and have two 2 race series. We will also have awards for people who race all four races. See you tomorrow!
But we did figure out how to enter late comers, so we could realistically start the race at 6:20 the latest. If you think you will be running late try to let us know. We have preregistration open for both the 4 race series and race one.

It will still be a fun series with the night races and different courses. The efforts by Scotto and Scott and whoever else volunteers thier time towards these races is very much appreciated. Thankyou!

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.
