STAY TUNED for the following new developments:So some of this definitely sounds like some pre-race hype (do you need hype for a race that sells out within 1 hour ?) but it's interesting that the Downhill only registration may be over. I, for one, think that's great but ... there will certainly be some unhappy campers.
Title Sponsor pulls-out and leaves event in jeopardy. Remaining sponsors asked to step-up. Talks resume with sanctioning body over Official All-Mountain World Championships. Saddle Tramps confirmed for July 11th street party. Say goodbye to downhill only categories, it's All-Mountain, all the time. Mark Weir threatens retirement from the event. Jason Moeschler pledges to try harder.
Registration for the LOTTERY (?) is stated to open on March 15th at 8:00PM.
