What a community we live in!

 

The Jeff Dusenbury Glen Alps registration was THE LARGEST event registration to date.  Thank you to all of you.

Talk about an impression.   Nearly 180 people have registered in memory of Jeff.  All proceeds for this event will buy helmets for the kids at the Girls and Boys Club Alaska in Jeff’s honor.  If you haven’t registered you still have time to do so.  Registration will be open for another week.  

Thank you again for thinking of Jeff in this way!

CHAD HOEHNE – many of may have heard but another of our racers was involved in an accident.  Chad Hoehne had a head on collision (on his bike) on the Bird to Gird trail just over a week ago.  Chad was medivaced to Seattle where he has undergone several surgeries over the last week. Chad severed his spinal cord in the accident (among other internal injuries) and is currently paralyzed from the chest down.  We are sure Chad would appreciate knowing how supportive our biking community is by sending him our well wishes.  For more information on Chad’s recovery you can visit:  caring bridge.org/visit/chadhoehne.

Pt Mack Dou – are YOU In?
Are you in?  We need more racers to make this series a go!

 

Saturday, July 19
 10:00am – 40K Time Trial
  1:00pm – Road Race (note time change)
Registration Bonus – both races just $30 online!

We know a TT is you against yourself…… (well almost), but an Road Race is you against the pack.  Without a pack there really isn’t any reason to do an Road Race.  So, that being said WE MUST HAVE THE NUMBERS to have a decent road race.  We will continue to have the time trial regardless; however we will evaulate by 9:00pm tomorrow night (Friday night) if the sign up is worthy of a road race.  DON’T let your biker pals down………………sign up by 9:00pm Friday night.  We will post by 9;30pm Friday night if the Road Race is ON or OFF.

CHANGE in TIME for Road Race……………..
If we have the numbers to run the road race, please not that we will start that event a 1:00pm on Saturday.  Please note the 1 hour (earlier) change in the start time.


REGISTER FOR THE DUO NOW!
Online registration closes at 9:00pm on Friday the 18th (for both events).  Onsite registration opens 1.5 hours prior to race start time.

Upper Huffman Hill Climb Thursday & more races on tap

 

Upper Huffman Hill Climb

Thursday, July 10, 7:00pm

Upper Huffman Hill Climb is a tough but fun 8-mile race with 1,500 feet of elevation gain from Potter Marsh to the Upper Huffman trailhead. If your fans want to follow you and park at the trailhead, they’ll need $5 or an annual state park pass.

This is race #5 of 7 in the Hill Climb Series. Even if you have not raced any of the hill climbs in the series, you are still eligible for the series prizes as long as you race in 3 of the series races.

Upper Huffman Hill Climb Course:  Mass start by division on Old Seward Highway at Potter Valley Parking Area. Head north on Old Seward to Rabbit Creek, east on Rabbit Creek to Hillside to Upper Huffman.  At the T just up the road on Upper Huffman instead of going right up to Glen Alps the course will go left onto Sultana Dr to the Upper Huffman trailhead.  The race will end in the large pull out just before the gate to the parking lot.
