Looking for volunteers on Sunday August 26th at Camp Penn in Waynesboro, PA.
We need help with registration and volunteers for an MBM staffed aid station. We also need a parking/traffic director and a gopher on course. We also need help with timing. Please let me know if you are interested!
To Benefit the Mountain Bikers of Michaux.
Michaux State Forest is getting a new race presented by Mountain Bikers of Michaux, Gettysburg Bicycle and TakeAim Cycling. In the course of one day racers will complete three mostly downhill timed sections. Each section will be super-d style and can be completed on any mountain bike. The ideal bike will be a full suspension with 120-150mm of travel.
Format:The race will consist of three timed sections consisting of mostly cross-country style downhill trail. There will be some pedaling! But, take a look at the profile maps and you'll see the direction is mostly down.
At the end of each timed section we will gather and ride as a group to the next start. The gist is; race the downhills, climb back up as a group. The climbs are on gravel roads with only a couple of pitches.
Stages 1 and 2 will be time trial starts with 30second splits between each rider.
Stage 3 will start in order of the overall times after two stages. We will calculate the times of the first two stages and racers will get to chase and be chased on the last stage as you start with your time difference as your split. Call your pass!
