Roadtrip: 2009 Mob In Mojave (Las Vegas)

MobinMojave_2009.jpgAlthough this is a bit of a roadtrip, I've heard nothing but good things about riding in Boulder City. And the US MTB Cups will be held nearby this summer, so you could gather some intel:
Presidents day weekend (Febuary 14/15, 2009) will be filled with mountain bike racing for all to enjoy in Bootleg Canyon (outside Las Vegas in Boulder City, NV). This is the fourth year for this festival style race, and the word has been spreading rapidly through the grapevine of racers, spectators and enthusiasts. With over 200 racers last year, the event continues to draw larger crowds annually. Bikes, Bands, BBQ and of course being with your friends riding & racing bikes.

Here’s a quick look at what we have planned so far for this years event:
  • Downhill ~ Super D ~ Dual Slalom
  • Shuttles Friday, Saturday & Sunday
  • U.S.A. Cycling sanctioned event
  • $2,000.00 pro cash purse and USAC National Points awarded for the downhill competition
  • Prizes for the top 3 finishers in each amateur category in each discipline
  • Professionally timed
  • World renown coach Gene Hamilton will host a 3 day race clinic at the event beginning on 2-12-09
  • All information including race course maps, registration, videos of last years race(s) can be found on http://www.downhillmike.com
  • With All Mountain Cyclery allowing us to promote this years event we hope many east coast racers will be venturing out to Nevada.
dhRENO has some good reporting about last year's race.
