First EVER Harvey Bear Ranch MTB Race

I've held off on posting this, mostly because I couldn't believe it was true. Sure, I've heard stories -- back when I lived in Los Gatos -- about people racing their mountain bikes in the South Bay, but I chalked it up to crazy old hippies. And, of course, a few valiant souls have tried to mount races in the past few years. But I do believe that this might be the first actual MTB race in the South Bay Area since I've lived in California (going past 12 years now):
