1. FREE TECHNICAL SKILL CLASS “RIDING THE CYTOMAX SPRING MOUNTAIN BIKE CLASSIC COURSE”
We will be having a free technical skills class for novice riders at the Flying B Ranch on Saturday, April 1st. The class will start at 9:00 and use the Cytomax Spring Mountain Bike Classic Course to teach you bike handling and endurance skills.
The class is free but the park does charge a $5.00 per car entrance fee. This is not a practice day; it is only a training class for those novices thinking about participating in the Cytomax Spring Mountain Bike Classic.
Our open practice days will be Sunday, April 9th and Saturday, April 15th.
If you’d like to attend to class, RSVP at:
2. CYTOMAX SPRING MOUNTIAN BIKE CLASSIC UPDATE
We will be having two practice days at the Flying B Ranch for the Cytomax Spring Mountain Bike Classic. The first practice day will be on Sunday, April 9th and the second practice day will be Saturday, April 15th. There will be $5.00 entrance fee to enter the Flying B.
We had some confusion over the laps per class at the Cytomax Spring Mountain Bike Classic due to the fact we were not sure if we would be including the Warrior’s Trail, a very technically demanding trail.
We decided to not include the Warrior’s Trail for this event but instead redesign it and add some wooden stunts.
The new 1.6 mile single track we have built, designed by Jason Martin, Eron Boyer and Tim Panttaja will take its place:
The laps will be 2 laps for novices, 3 for intermediates and 4 for experts.
Those registering after April 15th will not receive an Event t-shirt due to the need to get the order in to our silk screener.
3. MY VISION QUEST BY DAVE PARROTT
We received a lot of emails from the participants of the Vision Quest sharing with us the Visions they experienced. Dave wrote a wonderful story of his journey that we thought we’d share with you:
