  1. Hey, Kevin,
    Only 3 broken ribs. 4-6 weeks off the bike….bummer. Thanks for all your hard work and dedication to give us Mountain Junkies something to do on the weekends. You guys are awsome for organizing this series. See you in Montvale.

    • It’s an 8+ mile course with approximately 800′ of climbing per lap, no climb more than a couple minutes.

  2. Awesome races and an awesome weekend. Many thanks to all the volunteers who helped make this event happen. Next year, can you please request some dryer conditions? 🙂

    • Primitive Camping. You are welcome to bring the camper, there is space but there is no water or electrical hook up.

    • All Tire sizes welcome. Most will be on regular Mountain Bike tires. They use to be called Fat Tires compared to Road “skinny” tires. Hope to see you out there!
