First Race – Weather Update
Tuesday – Showers and thunderstorms likely, mainly after 2pm. Partly sunny, with a high near 79. South wind 5 to 9 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
YES WE ARE STILL RACING! Sounds like it will be raining during the race but, we are all Mountain Bikers and I can’t imagine anyone will melt. However, we will watch the lighting closely and invoke the lighting rule in our published rain plan if necessary.
Lightning within 5 miles:
- prior to start – post pone events 30 minutes, cancel events if it’s still within 5 miles
- During race – complete current lap and count it as the event
