Winter Short Track for 2019

For those who believe in rumors,please stop...

2019 Winter Short Track will be happening. Dates will be announced soon. 
Renni is not lost. The dump and repair of the dump are all on the fields and open lands. The trail is in the woods and for the most part is not located over the old dump. We are getting ready to sign an MOU to expand the trails and will officially start this fall rebuilding and add trail back. 

So believe the hype, Renni will rise again and Winter Short Track is coming!

I STRONGLY approve this message. Cool  Glad to hear it's coming back.  I too had heard from several sources Winter Short Track had died the same death as the Summer Series.

Looking forward to some Renni work dates over the fall/winter to not get fat over the holidays.

There has been a mix up in the messaging.  The Winter Series will be back, but the RAIN has been cancelled.

Looking forward to it - fun races.  As long as fun means a heart rate of 1000 and your tongue in the spokes.

Talked to Rain and he can't do the whole series but said he would try to make it out when he can.  Also said to be on the lookout for his cousins Ice and Snow.   They have been known to make an appearance too!

Sometimes we even have rain ice and snow all on the same day.  They have beaten me once, and I still have the scars to prove it!

Shocked

Signed up for Sundayís race this afternoon. Had a chance to ride the trail last week prior to the Enchalada and it was pretty darn fun. Been a while since I was there last and hadnít seen the new exit from the woods. Looked pretty cool but couldnít quite figure out if the more techy short cut was faster or not. Any opinions?

I'd agree that it's faster... if you stay on the bike.  Bobble and run... depends on the quality of the bobble and the speed of the run.

Also, traffic.  Someone screws it up in front of you and then you ded.  Ask me how I know that.

So, for those of us new to the MTB racing world.  The short track series is small distance single track sprints?  What kind of distance/laps are we talking about?  Are you racing for fastest laptime or physical position?

I wouldnt mind giving something like this a whirl as long as I don't embarrass myself on too badly.

Should be right at 1 mile laps. Youíll race for overall/physical position. Depending on what category you sign up for, race time will be 30-45-60 minutes. Expect 4-5 minute laps. This will give you a good guideline to go by.

Definitely faster with a clean run. Avoid if the conditions are sloppy, didnít see many folk hitting it last year when the trail was muddy.

Yeah, I'm surprised there hasn't been any feed back on the race. Was going to drop in to watch a bit but ended up having to do household chores  Sad

Glad you guys had a dry sunny day for it. Weather was perfect.

Tempted to give it a go but not too sure about trying to lug my 33lbs enduro bike around the course for 45mins at race pace. I suspect with my current fitness I'll be a mobile chicane.
