Happiest of New Years to Everyone!!
I hope the your New Year is filled with all of the opportunities and dreams that you hope for.
Our race season starts this coming weekend on the 8th and 9th and will come at us fast and furious until Mid March. So I hope that sounds really exciting to everyone.
I will really ask that everyone communicate with me about the events that they want to attend, I unfortunately cannot read minds, so I ask that everyone communicate really clearly with me via email, so that I have a record and can verify when I am signing you up for things.
MBAA Mountain Bike Race McDowell This weekend 8th and 9th of January
At the check in meetings that I was fortunate enough to have with many of you, I invited many of you to this opporunity.
All information for this event can be found here: https://mbaa.net/racing/mcdowell-meltdown/
I would encourage those of you who were able to ride and train over the break to attend.
If you were not around over the break or able to ride, I would encourage you to stay in town and to prepare for the next race that will be in another 2 weeks.
Please email me if you would like to attend no LATER THAN WEDNESDAY EVENING. Also let me know what category you would like to race.
Intermediate and Expert racers will need to depart the clubhouse with me on Friday at 1pm. One Van will be leaving as at this time I am the only driver. Your race is on Saturday and you will have to stay until after the races on Sunday, however you will be able to train. If a parent is able to pick you up on Saturday to go home, you are more than welcome to do this.
If you wish to race on Sunday with your age group or beginner groups then we need to find someone to drive a team van up on Saturday morning, if not then I am going to ask that we car pool as families, or drive seperately. If you race on Sunday, then I ask that you arrive on Saturday afternoon so that you can pre-ride the course. You will then be invited to camp with the team on Saturday night.
We all should be able to depart McDowell at approx. 2 pm on Sunday and be back in town at 4:30pm.
I have camp spots reserved for both nights and will be ready to cook for all attending.
