Good Times

Mountain bike season is literally around the corner, and there are some early season events that are in the Central PA region.

First off, in mid March there is the Michaux Mash. An event run by Fast Forward Racing, a regional junior development team. Basic info:

Event: Michaux Mash
Location: Michaux State Forest (Towards Big Flat Area)
Date: Sunday March 15, 2009
Time: 9am
Length: 4 hours
Men Open
Women Open
Masters Open(35+)
Junior Open(<18)
Cost: $50
What you get:
Pint glass
Post race meal
Stocked Aid station
Some pretty basic mechanical support
4 hours of racing/training
Fun course with plenty of climbing and a blazing fast decent. Plenty of fun single track. Proceeds go to sending some of the best juniors in the mid-atlantic to MTB nationals in Colorado this year. Full course map and lots of other details are located on the event website.

Second, the event you know and love the Team Relay. A 4 person team relay at the beautiful Oesterling Farm in Marysville, PA. This year, the handicap should make it difficult for an elite team to win this year, so come out and give it a shot.
