While WNYMBA members love racing in general and particularly those fine groups in Western New York like Single Track Racing and HeartRateUp who run races in WNY, WNYMBA doesn't actually run or sanction races ourselves and our insurance company has "strongly suggested" that we tell you that. So there, we told you!

Single Track Stampede IV RESULTS.
Just a reminder that registration for the STS-IV is only available online, no walk ups on race day. Online registration is open until 8am race day. http://www.webscorer.com/register?raceid=7019
RACE COURSE UPDATE: For this year's race we will be going clockwise with the start/finish being located near the road bridge near the snowmobile climb. This is close to where the Fest (shelters 6 & 7) is being held and where racer check-in will be on race day (shelter 5). PARK MAP
On Sunday August 25th, 2013 the Single Track Stampede returns to Sprague Brook Park for its fourth year on some of WNY's best single track. Once again it will be part of WNYMBA's Mountain Bike Festival Weekend. This year we will be using our new online only registration system where all racer info, waiver signing and money transactions are now done online. Online registration remains open until 8:15am on race day, with race day check-in from 8:30am to 10:00am. Racing starts promptly at 10:15am. Racer check-in is where you confirm that you are racing and receive your race number. We will also have a team competition for the first time. 3 person teams in each class compete for overall class prizes. Click "More..." for all the details and link to register.
Race day check-in starts at 8:30am and closes promptly at 10:00am in preparation for the 10:15am race start. The race fee is $33 and is only available online. Please don't worry, online registration will remain open until 8:15am the morning of the race. All waivers, racer info and money transactions are now taken care of through our registration website. Racer check-in is where you tell us you are racing and get your number. Attention WNYMBA members, use your old coupon code to receive a discount.
AGE GROUPS AND CLASSES:
We will have six age groups; 19&UNDER, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60&OVER in the three classes of EXPERT, SPORT and BEGINNER. We have two Single-Speed classes; EXPERT and SPORT OPEN as well as three FEMALE OPEN classes of EXPERT, SPORT & BEGINNER. Again, all experts do three laps, all sports do two laps and all beginners do one lap. Plus the SS and Female classes are open, meaning no age groups.
Please be a good sport and race in a class appropriate to your skill level. Category winners of previous Stampede races in Beginner and Sport are expected to move up to Sport and Expert.
Teams will consist of three racers and all must be in the same class (beginner, sport or expert). In order to form a team all 3 racers must register using the same team name and again be in the same class. Scoring will be based using each racers overall finish position in each class. There can be more than three racers per team, but only the top three finish positions will be scored.
Experts: Cash payouts to the top 3 in each age group. Medals to top three in each age group.
Sports: Top five overall will receive a cash prize. Medals and prizes to top three in each age group.
Beginners: Cash prize to the 1st overall beginner. Medals and prizes to top three in each age group.
Team prizes: First place overall teams in each class will receive a prize.
