Wassap MTBNJers?

you do know that there is an MTB world championship race taking place in the Hudson valley on sunday, right?


New Venue!
The NYSMTB Series is proud to announce the addition of a new race at a brand new venue!

Who will be crowned the undisputed world champion of backyard mountain bike racing? Somebody is going to leave with the belt!

The West Hurley Burly features a brand new 3+ mile course nearly a year in the making. Consisting 90% of hand-crafted singletrack, and incorporating the very latest in passing zone technology, this is a rider’s course… all killer, no filler!

As expected from an NYSMTB Series race, this will be a top shelf event, featuring:

•electronic scoring
•ample paved parking
•an MC calling the event & spinning tunes
•food vendor on site

…And all of that sweet, twisty singletrack

Cash for Cat 1 and Pro/Semi Pro riders! Cat 2&3 riders get medals with a prize blow out at the finals on 9/8/12 in September!!!

The race will be staged right on Rt 28 west just a few minutes from exit 19 on the NYS thruway. More complete directions will be made available before the event for pre-riding.

Registration is limited to 200 riders this year. Don’t miss out!

I was lucky enough to get a preview of the course, its a classic Catskill race. Twisty twists, punchy ups, and a sweet quarry to roll through. Besides the course being top notch, its a NY State race, so ya know its going to be good. Hippy Town Beat Down!

I was lucky enough to get a preview and it is really cool a'la Williams Lake type stuff. No cave but some cool shale features ... and a real wall ride! :D

Anybody know if it is a hilly course, techy course, cranker course, etc. Trying to figure single speed gearing - Thanks!

One switchbacked climb, not sure if its still in or not. Rest is like koolaid said. Couple punchy climbs, tight, twisty singletrack.

Guava hit a home run with this race! Almost non stop tech, short laps, Catskill vibe, music and great food. Scoring was just about real time. If you've never done a NYS race, you owe it to yourself to take the hike up there. Ran into Kirt and a few other Jersey boys.

Congrats to Jeremy, Corey, Mark and everyone else that worked to pull this off. Huge thanks to the landlord who allowed a course to be hacked through his backyard and then having a couple hundred people hanging around all day.
