Are U Ready For February

Double Race Weekend - Winter Short Track Series to ramp up Sat. 2/02 in Charlotte. Follow that with Sunday's make-up race. Should be great weather this weekend.

If your in the Fontana area check out the Icycle. It's going down this weekend. HBW very own "Extreme Tomato" will be on hand to sign autographs & breasts. Come one come all to the festivities.
Rumor has it that this is a jam up event in the Fontana area of NC. XC, Night DH & Social events galore. Fear the social event.

FATS Donation Ride


There is a FATS benefit ride this Sunday. It is a 50 miler with a supported sag stop. Bring what you want to drop at the sag and some $$$ for trail donations. The suggested amount is $25.

I will be coordinating a carpool for those who are interested in carpooling from Columbia.

We need to get a head count so Bill and crew can support us, so let me know soon. I will post up more details as I know them.

Check out their site for all the details:

Edit: Change of plans as I will now be leaving from Greenville. However you Columbia slackers should still come out and give me a head count. . .

Early 2008 Events

Upcoming events in the field of MTB for January & February. Winter Short Track Series to kick off Sat. 1/19 in Charlotte.

Edit: "Well folks, sorry the confusion last weekend with the weather fiasco, it looks like the weather for the kick-off for the EBB & G Winter Short Track on SUNDAY should be great. East Blvd Bar and Grill is cooking up their tasty chili for the event this Sunday. We have postponed the Jan 19 event to Feb 3, Super Bowl Sunday. For the weekend of Feb 2 and 3, we will host two races at the winter short track. Great way to burn a few extra calories so you can party hard during your Super Bowl events on Sunday evening." Promoter

Rumor has it that this is a jam up event in the Fontana area of NC. XC, Night DH & Social events galore. The "Extreme Tomato" will be there cleaning up all events. This man is feared in many areas especially the social event.

Lake Loop 2008 Recap

The 2008 Lake Loop has a huge success. A good move to the Sunday following New Years Day. The biggest turn out of any local club ride with 60 riders. We had riders from all the bike shops represented, a large group from the Columbia area, some Charlotte and Charleston making the trip. The Toby special of this ride treated all riders with 1/2 mile of dirt. A welcomed surprise for all and hated by some. Doug was kind enough to map the route with gps and post it here. I'll follow it up with a turn for turn cue sheet in a few days. For those who showed thanks and I hope you all enjoyed it.
