Hello Fellow Bicycle Racers!

I just wanted to let you in on a few little secrets about the Dirt Club Summer Series in Los Olivos.

1. There is CASH PAYBACK for Cat 2 , Cat 1 & Pros!
2. Cheap entry fees! No late reg fees & you can reg on race day!
3. This is a grass roots style series that is going to be a blast!
4. No license is required to race.
5. Friday & Saturday night camping on site with hot showers and free firewood!
6. No DH Shuttle fees!
7. This is a best 3 of 4 race series, there are 3 races left, so everyone still has a chance to win the series!

The format is XC Saturday mornings, Dual Slalom Saturday afternoon and DH racing Sunday at 12 noon. DH practice Saturday from 12 - 4 and Sunday morning from 8 - 11.

You can find info about the Dirt Club Summer Series at http://www.ridesb.com/images/formsmaps/summer_series.pdf

Here are the future Dirt Club Summer Series dates:

if anyone gets a chance to do this race, you will have a great time. I can't make this one, but I have done 2 in the past and enjoyed both. This is a private MTB park in los olivos, ca. I was there last year when they had to helicopter a few folks out of there because of the heat. it was BLAZING, in the 100's. Whoever attends will have a great time. Mike would love to see more northern cal folks down there. It is right off the highway 101, about 4 hrs from the peninsula. By the way, the wine tasting down there is cool too, and it doesn't cost 15 buck for a sip like it is in NAPA.

Hi Everyone,

The courses are marked for the 3rd race of the Stump Grinder Dirt Club Summer Series. Apologies if you have received this more than once. Please forward to your teammates!

We are sure hoping for a GREAT LOCAL TURNOUT of Chicken Ranchers and Platinum riders, as well as some Dirtbags and anyone and everyone else! We'd hope to see many, if not all SYV mountain bike racers attend, and especially the SGBC/Coastal Tree Care Cycling Team members!

Please come out an help support local grassroots Mountain Bike Racing! www.ridesb.com

Racing starts Sat @ 9 with the XC, Dual Slalom at 1, and continues Sunday with the DH.

You can camp too!

Entry fee is only $35 ($40 pros/ $25 for juniors) and there is no late fee tacked on!

Please, bring your team and support the Stump Grinder Dirt Club this weekend!

Hecky

Mike, what happened to the sept 26 xc race. Why did the race date change? I just noticed the change. I hope I am able to make it.

FYI, if you are looking for a good course with a grass roots feel this is a fun race. Iti s worth the drive down from the bay area. It's 4 hrs but the area is well worth the trip down.

Oh Interbike is the week prior and now there is a conflict with the final state race on the 26th. Sorry.
