Good Problems

There are certainly good problems out there, but they are still just problems. All of a sudden we have too many mountain bike races in the region! Now, as a mountain bike racer I'm not complaining. I love the fact that there are so many races ranging from xc to 6+hr races. But, as a race promoter it presents a bit of a problem. Especially when we do not have a large number of racers in the area.

What I'm trying to say is that the folks in Manhattan have revived the Fancy Creek mtb race. This is great news except it will be on the same day that we had planned our Camp Alexander race. Not wanting to split up the racers and make you choose between races we have decided to postpone the Camp Alexander mtb race. I know this is two years in a row now that we have got your hopes up with a race at Camp Alexander only to pull the plug on it. All I can do is apologize. There is some good news to come out of this though. We WILL be hosting the Riverfront MTB Race again this October in Melvern, KS. This is a relatively new trail that most have not experienced. It is certainly worth the trip. Check out pictures from last years race here. It is not until Oct. 2nd though, so you'll have to be patient on that one. Also, we are in the works on creating a point to point endurance race involving both Camp Alexander and the Riverfront trails in Melvern. We anticipate this to be in the fall as well, but we have not settled on a date yet. Most likely you'll have to pass on a 'cross race, but this one will definitely be worth it. I will be revealing more on this in the nearish future if it fully materializes.

Hey, most races in the spring time get canceled due to weather anyways (sorry, not trying to jinx it!) So, I think this is a good thing.
