Weekend information

Good news. Richard has secured the use of a van with bike racks.

 

I very much appreciate all the parents that were willing to help and reached out. However because of this van we do not need any special help.

 

We will leave at 10 am and meet at 9:30 am.

 

Please riders be prepared for it to be wet and cold. Pack well. Really on any trip you should have rain and cold gear.

McDowell and Race #4

We have 2 more races to go. This weekend we travel to North West Phoenix.

 

I do want to thank everyone for their flexibility this weekend. I very much appreciate your willingness to change your plans on Sunday.

 

This is going to be a classic prep week for the race. We in great shape right now, we have put in the work and ready to let it soak in. We want to focus on shredding this week and getting very comfortable playing in the dirt. We hit the pavement last week to get a fitness bump, now we are going to spend the week in the dirt getting our shred back.

 

Riders— Please by the end of Tuesday practice have your old Bins cleaned out. David Cross and Lynn built really cool cubicles for everyone and Eve and Maddy Mitchell labeled them. There is a cubicle for everyone. So please use it and clean out your bin. The bins are going to get cleaned out on Wednesday and anything left will be in the lost and found.

 

Parents please read below about the help we need on Saturday.

 

Training plan– 

 

Tuesday– Endurance MTB

 

Wednesday– Endurance MTB 3:45 and 4:30 starts

 

Thursday– Hole Shot Openers

 

Saturday– Meet at 9:30. Leave the clubhouse at 10 am.

 

BIG HELP NEEDED

Grupito is going to be using a van and trailer this weekend. The Adams however will be driving up in their Sprinter and will have some extra seats available.

 

We need the ability to carry 12 bikes on parents cars and seats for 10 kids. Please post and tell everyone what you might be able to carry.

 

Thank you everyone for your flexibility and help.

 

YET ANOTHER CHANGE FOR SUNDAY

Thank you to everyone for their patience. The weather has been amazing. Since we cannot battle mother nature or change her course we need to be nimble and just work around what she gives us.

 

There will be no ROC ride tomorrow. The road are going to be messy with debris and probably filled with puddles.

 

Everyone is encouraged to ride MTB’s tomorrow at Sweetwater.

 

2 pm start tomorrow. So leaving at 2 meeting at 1:30

 

This is window of after lunch and get you home before dinner

 

We will be back at the clubhouse at approx. 5 pm.

 

This should give us a good 2 hour ride at Sweetwater.

 

This should also allow the trails a good morning to dry up, so we do not do any damage
