Le Tour de Tick Update.

Oh yea! Just a couple of days left before the race! Looking forward to having you all out for what should be a gorgeous weather day – forcast is for mid 70’s and maybe up to 80!

Course will be fully marked by Noon on Saturday – got some rain last night so the preliminary ground markings may be there or not…

After the rain last night be assured that the course drains well with probably a couple of short wet spots – the rest will be smooth or rocky – a little bit of everything!

Trail conditions Bicentennial Park

Amazing - even with all the rain, Bicentennial has bounced back nicely - shed it's water and now, after a couple of good work days of grooming, she is ready to take on some racers.

Weather looks very good for Sunday - so come on out!

Three - count 'em - three weekends away

We are getting ready to roll with T de T, got some new sweet swag including a couple 'O cool paint ball, sidearm markers from JT Sports, more support from Trek Bicycles and a predetermined Expert purse (more on that later).

Over the next few weeks, we will be grooming the trail, gettin' most of those mean sticks and stones out of the way (not really - just the biggun's), and loading up the racer bags with loads of goodies from Hammer Nutrition, Grabber Warmers and.... the ever fabulous T de T t-shirt!

As an added incentive, for the Beginner and Sport Groups, the top three finishers in each group will get a surprise goody with their trophy.

Oh, and did I mention all the swag!
