Summer 2016 Is A Wrap

Thank you to everybody who came out to race at any point this summer! It was close at times (very close indeed last week) but we somehow made it through all thirteen (13!) races this summer without a single cancellation.

I'd like to thank Boulder Cycle Sport and Skratch Labs for being out there every week providing mechanical support and hydration, especially in these last few weeks with the extra hot late-summer weather. Yellowbelly also supported our endeavors by helping us out with this summer's numberplates and gift cards for prizes. Panache was also kind enough to provide us with an easy-up tent and gift cards. Last and certainly not least, we have RaceRite to thank for letting us use their timing equipment each week to provide you with instant and accurate results. A special shoutout must go to Matt Hudson who came out each week to run the timing system for us, as well as Dixon and Jenny who have been out there with us for the past few years running registration. Thank you all!

A couple notes: If you've won a Panache gift card in the last few weeks and it did not work, try again! There was a computer system issue that has now been resolved. With the storms that rolled through, things got a bit hectic last week and we did not get all the prized handed out. If you won a race and would like your prize, please contact me and we can arrange a way to get it to you.

"A" racers!! Like last year, we have cash prizes for the top three racers in the season standings. I am getting that organized and will contact each of you with instructions in the next couple of days. If you could send me contact info (email addresses) that would be helpful.

Series standings can be found via the link on the sidebar in the full web version of the blog.

Week 13--Costume Race!

Below you will find this week's final course, featuring The Corkscrew and the new section of trail next to it! Be sure to wear your best costume, as there will be extra prizes for the best men and women in costume. We may also add in a trick contest, so bring your A-game!

This race does count towards series points so bring your best race legs in addition to your costume. We do have some corrections to make to several results, so series results will be official by a week from Wednesday. We will announce the winners of the A men and women contests, and there will be a cash prize three deep. Winners will receive the details about how to claim their prize.

Week 12 Results

Results for Wednesday's races can be found here. Look here in the next few days for details about our final race on August 10, featuring the annual costume contest.

I also still have a few lost items, including the front wheel I've mentioned a couple of times. I'm not sure what I will do with it if nobody claims it, but most likely it will get donated to Community Cycles.

Week 12 Course

It's the penultimate evening of CU Short Track 2016! After a couple weeks of (mostly) flat courses, we will once again be going uphill.

Next week will be the big finale, featuring a costume contest and also a finish-line contest, so bring your A-game on August 10!

Finally, I'd like to remind everyone that we have a Garmin, a couple pairs of sunglasses, and a front wheel that have been left behind over the past few weeks. Please claim these by the end of the night on August 10.

Week 11 Results

Results are up! Something weird happened during the Women's A race and I am not very confident in those particular results, so if they are not correct, let me know and I can get it fixed. Other than that everything is good!

Also, somebody left a wheel behind last night. If you think it might be yours, please send an email describing it and we can get it returned. We still have a couple pairs of sunglasses and a cycling computer from the past few weeks as well.

It's official: we are going to add one more race to the series on August 10! So not next week but the week after plan on wearing your best costume (theme TBD) and work on your tricks--the best costume and best trick across the finish line will earn a prize.

Week 10 Results

Results are up! Thanks to all who came out despite the threat of storms, I think that we might have had our most well-attended kid's race of the season! The clouds kept it cool, and rain from the last couple of days kept the dirt tacky for an evening of fast and fun races.

Two more to go with a bonus race on August 10 still in the planning stages.
