Barn Burner is less than 30 days away – September 7, 2019. Not registered yet? Still time – all categories are open. REGISTER HERE.
Registered? Nice, and THANK YOU for your support. In return the event supports Flagstaff Biking Organization – a critical organization as the post- Museum Fire trail rehabilitation/reconstruction starts.
The thermometer hovers around 110 degrees here in the Valley, and cyclocross my not be on your mind – but now is the time to plan and prepare for the 2019 season. Three (3) races – 11/10 Mother Nature Farm, Crossroads Park, and Goodyear.
Schedule is firming up for the 2019 Series events – updated/combined categories and race times, plus a return to Mather Nature’s Farm! JetSet Racing returns as the sponsor the MNF CX on November 10, and Bicycle Ranch steps up as the Series Final/State Championship event on November 23 at Crossroads Park.
Just two months – Saturday September 7, 2019 – remain before the annual endurance mountain bike test (race) that is known as Barn Burner! Known for a fast challenging – non-technical – course, Barn Burner is the perfect mountain bike event to race as a SOLO, or with friends on a two-person or four-person team. Race as a 100 mile SOLO – and earn a chance to compete in the Leadville MTB 100 in 2020.
Escape the heat – camp in the beautiful Coconino National Forest. Enjoy adult beverages from Historic Brewing, and support Flagstaff Biking Organization.
Head north in late summer to the Coconino and Kaibab National Forests – just 20 miles north of Flagstaff. Solo categories available in 100/50/25 miles, and two/four person team categories!
Each Leadville Qualifying Series race provides 25-100 qualifying slots to the Leadville Trail 100 MTB, based on the total number of registered riders at each qualifier event. Half of the qualifying spots will be allocated based on the top age-group performances and half will be drawn among riders who have finished the qualifier race within the allocated cut-off time.
AZ CROSS Flat Tire Cross is re-scheduled to November 4.
The forecasted conditions on Saturday left us (the City of Globe, USA Cycling Officials, and the Series) no real good choices. The options were to find another venue for Saturday (we called Gilbert, and Phoenix Parks), re-schedule the event to another date in Globe or cancel the event entirely.
Re-scheduling was best for both the City of Globe – they love the event in Globe – and the Series. A special thanks to City staff – particularity Scott in Parks, and John in Facilities, for their time and effort in working through the options. Having a partner like the City of Globe is awesome!
October 13 registrations will be transferred to the new event date.
We appreciate your understanding, flexibility and support – please mark your calendars for November 4 in Globe!
