2013 WNYMBA Racing

With the 2013 race season starting just after the holidays with the 2nd annual Winterfest Race in late January, I thought some discussions about racing/riding would be nice since the weather is not cooperating for riding.  To start it off, slower_than_u has written an article about passing, which touches on general race etiquette.  I have also started a new topic in the forums HERE, where anyone can go in and post a comment or question.

Our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that Mountain Biking can be dangerous. If you're visiting this site it's very likely that you're already aware that if you insist on having a good time by riding your mountain bike, eventually you will almost certainly fall down and collect any number of boo-boos, dings and injuries, serious or otherwise, but we have to tell you anyway.

Mountain Biking is a potentially hazardous activity carrying a significant risk of bodily injury and even death. Mountain biking should only be undertaken if you have a complete awareness of these risks. You can reduce the level of risk by wearing a helmet and by riding within your own skill level.
