Thanks to all the Trail Mason Volenteers and Sponsors for making this race posible and for pulling it off smothly.  And thanks to all the racers for coming out and supporting local trails and local racing.

Sorry it took so long to get results up but the Trail Mason Crew took the night off and kicked back at the lake after the race. And router problems delayed posting of results today. I will have a full race report out soon.

Big thanks to Bob, Scott Lathrom, Shane Jones for helping me Mark the course this afternoon it is presently all marked except for sections that we will put cones up for in the morning.   A big Thanks goes out to Mark Ruehter for taking care of one last round of pruning so no one should be getting smacked in the face with any branches or rose bushes as they blast threw the single track.  Also a Big thanks to Mnason Misko for agreeing to wake up at the crack of dawn to do a preride of the course to make sure all is well before racing begins.  A few last notes I have posted up the race flyer for your reference it has directions times and costs all spelled out for you. One note on times to beat the heat we do not do "normal" race times Cat 3, JR, Marathon start at 9am. Cat 1, 2, single speed, Clydesdale start at 11am. all awards will be as soon as possible after the racing is done. We will have water and Heed available at the start finish and we have 10 watermelons that we will be chopping up through out the day. Feel free to bring any additional refreshments and remember this is Wyco so after race beer is fine so BYOB is in full effect.  Last note our friends the trail Nerds are also having a trail race Sunday so do not get fooled and follow their signs because they will not let you use your bike for the 5K. Masons Midsummer Meltdown is at shelter 3.

Amazing preride tonight over 50 cars in the lot and over 60 bikes enjoying the trail. once we got the train moving into the woods it was impressive seeing probably an 1/4 mile string of bikes weaving through the woods on the trails we have worked so hard to build. Thanks to everyone who joined us tonight for the fun. Online registration is now closed but we will have race day registration for anyone who missed it. Stay safe this 4th of July its hard to one finger brake if you blow your braking finger off. See you all on Sunday ready to race

It's Pre-ride time Most races don't do this but we're not just about the racing were about the riding community and all the friends you meet along the way. So Wednesday June 25th and Wednesday July 2nd rolling out promptly at 6:15pm from the main trail head above shelter 9 we will have 2 pre-ride groups.  For you fast people Shane Jones (without Shane there would not be MTB trails at Wyco)  will be leading you around the course at blistering speed.  For those who don't think their gods gift to speed I will be leading a much more leisurely No drop group ride around the course.  All this will be followed by BS and whatever refreshments you chose to bring back at the parking lot.
