Big Woods Classic

 

!!!   RACE VENUE CHANGE   !!!

Murphy Hanrehan

Map to the park Click HERE
Due to the heavy rain we have changed the race venue of this weekend's race to Murphy Hanrehan park!  Murphy is a fantastic set of trails in the twin cities and we are lucky to be able to move the race here for tomorrow.  There has been a ton of very FAST planning by folks that really know the trails down there well to get courses setup and secure the proper cooperation with city and MORC.  I cannot tell you how awesome it is that Three Rivers Parks is doing all of this to hold a mountain bike race AS PLANNED with the Crazy weather we have had.

Here are the details:
  • The race will be held at Murphy Hanrehan Park Here is a link to the park page with directions to the MTB trails  : http://ift.tt/2cSHslH  Please make sure to come a little early due to the changes.
  • The race will start at the regular time 9:00am Kids Comp
  • The course is OPEN for pre-ride BUT the volunteers will be out there marking the course all afternoon so give them space and a "You ROCK" as you ease by
  • We ARE using some of the ski trails for the race.
 

Course Information (UPDATED)

The singletrack trail at Murphy Hanrehan will follow a similar layout as Lake Rebecca. The trail system builds from beginner to intermediate to advanced, getting progressively more difficult as you bike further from the trailhead at the start/finish area. No matter your skill level, you are sure to be appropriately challenged. The first mile of all Murphy's race starts will use the turf trail to spread racers out. From there racers will cross into the single track trail. For racers who are doing multiple laps, you will lap back into the single track trail - not back into the mile start loop. The finish will be located at the exit of the single track trail. Click the map below for detailed information on the Murphy trail system. Kids Comp racers will do one full lap of the beginner and intermediate trails; Citizen racers will do two full laps of the intermediate and beginner trails; Marathon will compete on the full trail system loop; Sport will do one full lap of the entire course; Comp & Womens & Mens Elite will do TWO full laps of the entire course. KIDS Fun Race will do one lap on the beginner trail.

 

Parking/Drop Off

The Big Woods Classic will have parking available on the gravel access road outside of the main parking lot at Murphy's trailhead. Parking liaisons will be on site to provide direction and assistance. We will utilize the southwest side of the access road leading up to the race village. Signage will direct racers and spectators to the main Racer Village. A racer drop off will be available outside of the main race village.

1997 Hawaii Mountain Tour – MTB stage race

MTB stage race, Oahu, Hawaii. Prologue time trial at Ala Moana Beach Park. The rest of the stages were at Kualoa Ranch. I think the pros had a point to point race that started in Waimea.

This year I was racing for Team Boca Hawaii, which at the time was affiliated with Island Triathlon & Bike (IT&B) where I worked.

The race was held in March and I was already packing up and sending stuff up to Minnesota for our move in May.

If I'm not mistaken, this was officially my last race in Hawaii.

Actually, my last race for about 9 years, when I did the Oxbow Classic race in 2006.

Now this is a throwback. Penny Farthing race action.

Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored. eastwood mountain biking rochester ma
