Special Considerations: Please note the following:
• Mountain bikes, ONLY. Athletes must use mountain bike frames with 26-29 inch wheels, and tires with a minimum 1.5 inch width (no road tires allowed) and have some sort of knobby, raised pattern that covers more than 50% of the tire surface.  So that means the slick portion of the tire is less than 50% of the tire surface.

Questions: Please contact Eric Greager at  with any race questions.

Volunteers: We need lots of volunteers for all our multi-sport events. If you can help at this event, please contact Eric Greager at .
