Race Info:


 

GELPRH (pronounced: gel-purh):  Those of you that are specialized, this is for you… Those of you that like to dabble in multiple disciplines, this is for you TOO! And those that like to ride old bikes (at least 20 years old) on everything, jump right into the “Clunker” Category and show off your brave souls!  There will be a top award for the best clunker bike choice each day.

Gunny Enduro will test your downhill mountain biking skills on the Gunny Loop trail against some of the best in the area.  Due to the postpone, the rescheduled Little Park Road Hillclimb will take place 09/17/2016, which will test your climbing prowess against some of the best in the area!  You will be awarded each day separately, but those of you that do both, you will be crowned based on the best time combined as MAD King or Queen of The Hill for the year!  You may ride different bikes each day to achieve your best times…

Dates:

  • Gunny Enduro = June 18, 2016 (Saturday) @ 8 am.
  • Little Park Road Hillclimb = September 17, 2016 (Saturday) @ 8 am.

Race Locations (check out “Directions” for step by step direction to each location):

  • Gunny Enduro = Little Park Road Staging Area.
  • Little Park Road Hillclimb = Park Mesa Inc Subdivision cul-de-sac (323 Little Park Road).

Categories:

  • Women/Men A: Maddest speed of all.
  • Women/Men B: Right in the middle…
  • Women/Men C: Just starting out or testing the waters!
  • Women/Men JR: If you’re a junior and want to compare with others, this is you!
  • Women/Men Clunker: Ride a bike at least 20 years old and show off your brave souls!

Awards:  Medals to top 3 in each Category!

Awards Location & Time: TBA.
