The first Winter Park mtb race of the series is next Saturday (June 9). Anyone want to join me for it? It's a hill climb, climbing the (not-very-exciting) service road to the top of the ski area. About 2000 ft of climbing, nothing technical.

I have to admit, this is not at all the funnest race of the series, but I'm just excited to get racing again!

website is here: http://www.epicsingletrack.com

The second race is June 16, on actual trails instead of boring service road.

Yay for summer!! Piper

So how'd the race go?  We didn't end up going, the bf couldn't get out of work.

It was awesome, in a really sick way...

It was a tough hillclimb, got my ass handed to me, but Im looking forward to doing more of the races.  It was great to see Bella Piper and another bella, pro Jennifer Tilley. 

You should come up and race, the race organizers are very nice and the trails are great up here.

I wont be able to do the next race this Sat, but definately will be doing the crankworks crosscountry race in a few weeks, were I will get my ass handed to me again...

I might race this weekend but probably not with Crested Butte next weekend and the short track races on Wednesday, unfortunately my wallet isn't deep enough and I've gotta feed the dog :?

Ya, it was a tough race. But I'm glad I did it, as painful and annoying as it was at the time!

I'll be there this weekend - the solo Bella, it sounds like. I'll miss the crankworks race for a vacation to NYC, but will make all the rest of the races this summer!
