WNY mountain bike racing is still here, it's just has a new name. Welcome Single Track Racing! For 2014 the Single Track Racing team will be promoting a 6 race spring series, the Single Track Stampede V and a new race, the Harris Hill Hustle. Be sure to checkout the STR website www.singletrackracing.com and Facebook page, www.facebook.com/singletrackracing. There you will find race info and links to our registration pages.
It may not seem like it to many of you but winter is ever so slowly winding down. That means it’s time to start thinking about mountain bike racing. We’d like to introduce you to Single Track Racing. We’re excited about what we have to offer mountain bike racers in 2014 but figured we should explain who we are and provide some background.
The Single Track Racing team includes Scott Jeziorski, Greg Culver, Dan Rabb, Scott Bixby and TJ Zydel. As you know, Scotto has been running the Single Track Stampede since 2010 and was the WNYMBA race director in 2012 and 2013. The Scotts, Greg, Dan and TJ ran race production under the WNYMBA banner but as you can imagine, running races is a lot of work and we were experiencing a bit of burnout at the end of the 2013 season. We let the WNYMBA officers know that we wanted to pass the race program along to someone else. No one stepped up to carry on the program so we decided to take the racing “in-house” and that’s how Single Track Racing was formed. This gives us more freedom to manage the racing and frees up WNYMBA to focus their resources on trail building, maintenance and trail advocacy.
That’s enough history. Head over to www.singletrackracing.com for more details about STR's 2014 racing events. You can also find STR on Facebook at www.facebook.com/singletrackracing. Once again, we’ll be using Webscorer for timing and scoring and race results. Registration for the The Series opens March 1st. Feel free to contact any us (either through here, Facebook or our website) with any questions. Thanks and we hope to see you at Sprague Brook in May!
