Notes for Cactus cup

Friday– Remember to bring a lunch.

Also in the van please have your kit ready to go in a bag. That way we do not have to fight through all the bags to find your race clothes. So have helmet, shoes and such at the ready.

Also remember that we are going to be building camp after the race.



Weather it will be chilly in the morning, please have a jacket or good sweatshirt.


Weather it will be sunny so have clothes to keep the sun off of you.


Do not bring your favorite water bottles. I would hate for you to lose them. So bring your spares.


Always have a team t- shirt with you.


SHOWERS!! Yes there are. So please bring things to shower with.



It just keeps coming
