Here is the link to the results for the inaugural 12 Hours At Night mountain bike relay and endurance event.

RESULTS

One thing to take note of on the results sheet, is that Taylor Lideen was on a torrid pace when the stitches in the palm of his hand started to tear out, and he was forced to drop out after posting the fastest time for the first 5 laps.

He is trying to heal up so he can race in a big endurance event is a couple of weeks.  I really would have liked to see how many laps he could have put on the board.  We hope to see Taylor back here next year to see what he can do.

We also have some photos posted on our Shutterfly page, check them out!

We put on the 12 Hours At Night mountain bike ride last night, and it went so smoothly that it was scary!

The riders seemed to have a great time, we have the best volunteers you could ask for, and there were no injuries.

Results will be posted in the next couple of days, but I can tell you that the top lap count was 17 laps at 8.2 miles per lap…..yep, that is riding 140 miles on dirt trails on a mountain bike…AT NIGHT!!

Congratulations to everyone that came out and raced.

Thank you to all the super volunteers that made it happen.

Course is Marked for the 12 HAN July 10, 2009

I went out this morning and lightly marked the course for next weekend’s 12 Hours At Night mountain bike ride.

The course is marked with white sprayed chalk arrows on the ground.  Feel free to pre-ride it to get a feel for the flow, although it is a whole different animal at night with only headlights to show you the trail!

On race day night, we will mark it with much more authority.  The chalk will be flowing, and we will also have white flagging along the course.

Temps should be about 80° to start, and then cooling to 60° through the night……….summertime perfection!
