Additional Info:

In case you forgot, here is a run down on what to expect. The Riverfront MTB Race and 5K is all about you. More specifically, it is about you having fun. This event will be great whether it is your first time or if you are a hardened veteran of dirt. It is a great atmosphere for first timers and a fun challenging trail for expert riders.

There will be food available for an additional cost (~$5 will get you burger and a drink kinda deal).

We have fantastic prizes thanks to Trek for the top 3 in all age groups. Useful things you will be glad to have! The Expert 34 under and Expert women classes will be the only paid classes. Payouts will be dependent on field sizes. More people = more payback. So, if you are trying to earn some cash it is in your best interest to bring friends!

If anything is unclear, or if you have any questions, feel free to let me know! Hope you can join us!
