Race Tip of The Week: Last race of the series, HAVE FUN (bring bug spray)

Well it’s been a great summer, but all good things must come to an end. This week’s course will be a carbon copy of Week 2’s course, our first race, but in a Time trail Format (one lap on your own against the clock). Comparing the lap time will determine our most improved rider.

We will be calculating the winners on the fly and have our series winners awarded at Tuesdays potluck awards party that night. In the event of a podium position tie we will have a single lap race off on the kids course.

As I mentioned we will be having a Potluck Awards Party after the event please help us out, Berkshire Bike and Board will be providing all the meats, but we need sides and deserts. If your last name is an A-M please bring a side, if it is N-Z please bring a desert (or bring anything you want). We also need Tables chairs so please bring extras if you can. AND A GRILL!!!! (mine broke at last years, please let me know if you have a gas grill we can borrow)

We will also be pulling the raffle tickets, you must be present to win. Giant Bicycles came through big time with $700.00 worth of swag (including a kids bike).

THANK YOU EVERYONE who donated this year, in addition to the generous donations by our sponsors your donations have ensured the we have the seed funds to do the race again next year. Please don’t stop donating, give generously, if you don’t have cash on you can write a check made payable directly to the Berkshire Cycling Association, or go to our web site, www.berkshireMTB.com, and donate via Paypal.
