WORLD Champion to Race in Prescott July 8, 2010

That’s right folks, our little 12 Hours At Night mountain bike endurance race has attracted the 2009 25-and-under World Solo 24 Hour Champion and KHS team rider Taylor Lideen!

Taylor was here last year to use our event as a training race for the USA Cycling Mountain Bike National Championships (where he took 3rd), but had to withdraw after 5 laps because he was tearing open the fresh stitches in the palm of his hand.  He had the fastest time through those 5 laps with a 1 min. 25 sec. lead over Vassago team rider Zach Stanford.

Word is that Stanford (a Prescott local) will be back to defend his impressive Male Solo division win from last year.  Click here for last year’s results.

Can you say SHOOT OUT?

2010 Whiskey Off Road April 25, 2010

The weather was perfect for the Whiskey Off Road here in Prescott, AZ.

Rumor has it that there were nearly 1000 riders signed up to race in one of the 3 distances.  Because of the name of the race, the different lengths are called proofs.  The 15 Proof, the 25 Proof, and the punishing 50 Proof.

I raced in the 25 Proof again this year with the goal of breaking the 3:30 barrier (it has been a barrier to me anyway!).  If I get the time and energy, I will write a complete blow by blow account of my experience on the race course, but for now, I will just tell you that I am very happy to have broken through and recorded a personal best time of 3:27 (keep in mind that I am only a weekend warrior, and am also 47 years old!)….oh and the 25 Proof is really a little over 28 miles!

There were many pros that showed up for this event, which meant there were going to be some killer times laid down.  Tinker Juarez showed up too!

Epic Rides is the company that produces the Whiskey Off Road, and they have turned it into a huge event that really brings people to Prescott, where they usually spend at least one night on the famous Whiskey Row taking in the flavor of our wonderful city.

The Epic Rides results page is HERE and they say they will have photos up soon as well.

I hope that some of the folks that came and raced this weekend will return in July for the 12 Hours At Night mountain bike endurance ride.

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!
