...and then there were two.

Two races left that is. With Week 5 in the books (results here) you have two chances left to climb in the points standings. The payouts have grown in large part due to great turnout from riders - so keep telling all your friends to come and race and continue to grow the pot.
The last two weeks will be the ones you don't want to miss: great prizes from SkullCandy, as well as Northwave, Zoic, Vaude and more. The final race, in addition to having cash on hand for the winners, we'll have a drawing for a 3 Day Season Pass to Solitude, a Cannondale bike frame and much much more.
Let's not forget the kiddies - Sam, Josh and Tate took first, second and third in the one-lap kids division and Drew, Haley and Eli cleaned up in the two lap division.

Sport Men: -1:30

Week 3 Results and photos

Another week, another great turnout. The series keeps getting better: the times continually improve, the heckling gets funnier, and sweet rafle prizes keep rolling through the door. Next week expect some love from Liberty Mountain and SkullCandy. We still plenty of great schwag to give away from Northwave, Zotes, Zoic, Pearl Izumi and more. The results are posted here, so you can figure out you need to catch in the points standing, as well as who may be trying to catch you!
Enjoy the photos. See you next week.

Week 2 Results

75 racers showed up for Week 2, so I guess it is safe to say the word is out! With the increased ridership, we are going to be able to increase the payouts for each class. We'll get the new amounts published in a week or two, but for now, keep racing and keep growing that pot!
A really cool side note, is that we had 17 kids race in our kids race, with Coner, Tucker and Cale winning in their respective classes. Several families came all the way up to Solitude just so their kids could race, which is great. I hope this trend continues and more and more little racers come out each week.
Here are those results.
