2007 Cool MTB Race Scheduled

A slight change from the previous rumor on the Cool MTB Race dates: Auburn Bike Works, the organizer of the race, has announced that the 15th Cool Mountain Bike Race is set for March 11th, 2007 (not March 10th as previously rumored).

As last year, t
he race will cover approximately 10 miles of fire roads (85%) and singletrack (15%) on the Olmstead Loop in Cool, CA (six miles south of Auburn, CA). Begineers will do one lap, sport two laps and expert/pro will do three laps. Singlespeed, Clydedales, tandems and expert women will do two laps. As the promoters warn, "the course will be muddy." Or snowy. Be warned.

The ride is capped at 425 riders. Awards will be given three deep and the expert/pro purse starts at $200. Race registration starts at 8 AM (you can also check-in the day before at Auburn Bike Works) and the pre-race meeting commences at 10:30 AM. Awards and prize raffles will be held immediately after the race.
