Come on out to the inaugural ladies only 2knee race. This is a timed ride down Eric's trail (down only). We will ride as a group to the top and take turns on the down. All levels welcome!!! We have amazing sponsors, The Guide's Hut and Beanpod donating prizes, which will be given away as random door prizes, that's right, it doesn't matter your time, you can still win a prize!! You don't even have to give your real name for your timing, in fact we are encouraging the use of superhero aliases. 

Did we mention your $2 gets you a beer and nachos at The Pub at Park Place after??? 

Still nervous to race? Here are some reasons why you should come out and have FUN: 
-Racing or riding a trail alone is a different experience
-Spacing will be watched carefully, no worries about someone coming up to you (as best we can)
-Your time will surprise you! I promise, if you have never been timed before you will be pleasantly surprised by how fast you actually are
-Don't want to come in last? Well, someone will have the slowest time. We won't post the results publicy on line, you may still get a prize, if you use an alias then really no one will know it is you since the starts are all staggered (no mass start). 

Stay tuned for more information!!
