Spring is here, which means it’s time for bike racing season to start! We are excited to feature another great race on June 8th at Mousetail Landing State Park. It's the Jackson Spokes' fourteenth year hosting this event, and the Tennessee Bellas' second year at Mousetail. We envision 2008 to be our best race ever! Of course, we have some high expectations based on last year’s success.
• New race location was a great boost for the race. In fact, many riders wanted to know if we could do a second race, so that they could race in both directions on the trail.
• Increased overall participation - up 42% from 2006
• Increased our attendance of “Pro” and “Expert” riders
• Increased our attendance by “Beginner” participants by 200%
• Race T-shirts for the first 100 riders - We are the only mountain bike race that gives free T-shirts to participants (sponsors listed on back). Throughout the entire racing season we saw riders wearing our T-shirts, generating interest and spreading the word about our race and our sponsors.
• Race has brought more interest to Mousetail Landing State Park and the activities it provides (bike trail, hiking path, kids playground, etc).
Every successful race needs sponsors. Your support adds another dimension to the sport, and cyclists show their support to you. Please join us in promoting a sport that gets people outdoors, promotes a healthy lifestyle, encourages a sense of community, and is filled with good stories and laughter by becoming a sponsor of our 2008 Mousetail Challenge Mountain Bike Race.
Where does the money go? Our goal is to give it all back to the racers. Gathering more sponsorship support allows us to feature this event as a Division II event. The higher the level, the more racers that will attend, translating into greater exposure for your organization. At last year’s race, we gave away over $1500 worth of cash and prizes! Racing makes you hungry, so we also provided free soft drinks, hot dogs, hamburgers and all the fixin’s for everyone after the race.
Our race will be an exciting event and we would appreciate your participation. We’re passionate about this sport and want to offer a top-notch event that brings as many riders together as possible. Join us in putting on the best mountain bike race ever!
Shoot me a message if interested. Sponsorship levels start at $100 cash or prizes.
