RACE #3 CANCELLED

Unfortunately due to the standing water on the trail, and what looks to more on the way, the race has been canceled tonight. City Officials felt 100 racers on the wet trail would not be good - plus, it's never fun to be struck by lightning. We will be back in Park City at Round Valley for next weeks race.

Oh yeah, new course next week. We'll start up the road and make the turn onto Matt's Flat, then take a left and head up to Nowhere Elks. We will climb up to where you will be on the trail junction of Nowhere and Somewhere Elks (ridge top), from there around back to our start/finish area via lower Rambler. About the same distance, maybe a little harder - but not much. Then...we are off to Solitude for Race #5 - June 24th.

It is always bad weather in the week leading up to the Pedalfest race, at least it seems that way. Remember the snow last year?

Too bad about tonight but better we respect the trails. Would it be possible to finish the race a little ways down the road beyond the single track? The way it is now there is no chance to pass in the last minutes on the singletrack and it gets to be a parade to the finish with slower riders in front. Finishing down the road a distance would allow a last pass.
