US Cup-February update
It’s that time of year again, the opening race of the season is just around the corner, and racers start planning out their year of racing. To help keep you informed and up to date, we wanted to pass along some US Cup event info, as well as some sponsorship discounts you can take advantage of during the remaining off season.
Vail Lake Resort will kick off as the official round of the 2012 Rock N Road Cup West series, on March 3rd and 4th. Registration is now open and information can be found at the US Cup website. Vail also marks the first round of the US Cup Triple Crown presented by Kenda Tires. This year the Triple Crown will be open to CAT 1 racers, including Saturday’s Short Track race.
Catalina Island MTB Gran Fondo:
If you haven’t heard of this event, we are not sure where you have been!? This unique event is a once in a lifetime chance to ride the island and get access to usually restricted trails with friends and family.
We are at 90% participant capacity as of 2/7/12 and we are trying to petition more riders to be allowed to enter. However, with no guarantees we suggest anyone serious about this May 12th event, pre-register today over at the US Cup website.
Here is a link to a recent article in Mountain Bike Action with a feature on Catalina Island:
