"RACE FOR TARA: As you may know, Pro-women's mountain bike racer, Tara Llanes, suffered a horrific crash recently.For full details, click the link above to go to the Sand Hill site. Sand Hill kicks off their fall season this weekend.
Sand Hill has been asked to host a benefit race on Tara's behalf. We have chosen November 17th because it is the next available Saturday on the calendar ... Although many of you prefer the excitement of our dual slalom course, we have chosen Mountain-X as the race format because it doesn't take as long to run.
There will be a raffle (So far we have Fox Shox, Fox Racing, USA Cycling, Gravity Addix, AllOut Productions, RideSFO, etc.). USA Cycling has waived all permit and insurance fees and Sand Hill will not charge for parking that day. A representative from Tara's account will be there to assure all of you that the money is going directly to Tara. " (Via Sand Hill Website)
