Can I do the race in a trio?
Yes. Basically, we want to get as many people participating as possible and if you can’t find a full 4’s team or don’t want the solo experience, be our guest. We do not have a specific category and prizes to go with it but you can do it un-ranked. Everyone is still eligible for the draw prizes of course. If you are interested in finding a team however, just pass along an email and we can play match-maker. Let us know if you are a seasoned veteran and looking for a competitive team or are looking for a “fun only” group.
What is the entry fee?
It pays to register early! The early bird fee is $20 / person.
The fee on the day of the event is $25 / person.
The price does include a t-shirt so make sure you register early so we can get your size.
Can I use a mountain bike on the trail and then a road bike on the road?
No. We feel that part of the fun/challenge is to decide on what ride to take. The trail isn’t that long (2km) but there are a couple of sections that will be very slow on a road bike. Also, if it has been rainy the dirt track will be muddy. Check out the gallery for 2009!
