    No dab 2 rock gardens for chance to win $1.6K Reserve carbon wheelset from Santa Cruz

    If you can clean this climb:

    No dab 2 rock gardens for chance to win alt=.6K Reserve carbon wheelset from Santa Cruz-38768488_278256812952836_5220771582829395968_n.jpg
    (near start of Stage 3 on Salmon Falls trail)

    And you can clean this climb:

    (near start of Stage 4 on Dotons Point trail in Granite Bay)

    You will earn 2 tickets to win this:

    (tires, discs and cassette not included... just the wheels)

    And considering less than 200 people are signed up for the Santa Cruz Bicycles Mother Lode Epic happening on August 18th, chances are you might be 1 of 20 people with an actual ticket or 2 for the awards drawing.

    The first no-dab challenge is harder but doable. The second one is easier but trickier than it looks at the very top (where the rider is walking).

    But wait, there's more!

    A radar gun will be used on a rippin' DH section on Stage 2... highest speed attained by male and female will win a set of Shimano XT brakes!

    (Probably gonna need to hit low to high 30mph range to win... based on some Strava research)

    And even more!

    Another challenge for you speedsters:
    - Shimano Stage Winner - Win a stage using at least one Shimano component and you're eligible to win an XTR "Refresh Package" worth $1,050!

    And another challenge for anyone who can think outside the boat... err... box
    - Do something "epic" on a transfer (e.g., jump the wake on the boat transfer) and one of two Fox Transfer dropper posts could be yours!

    - All finishers are in a drawing for a Fox 34 Factory Stepcast 29 fork

    I'm really surprised less than 200 people have signed up after all the excellent feedback from last year's race. MLE is truly a one of a kind event in our region, whether you're racing it or swiftly riding it.

    I predict "There Will Be Blood" on that DH speed contest. Who will shift to small rear cog, release brake levers, and let her rip !?

    Now that's a good use of a radar gun.

    OMG. The first rock garden climb has already seen trail "modifications" to make it easier. Good job, mt. bikers.

    I noticed some stacking out there on Friday, it's moot for me since that climb is above my paygrade unless someone brings in a tractor.

    Itíll surely be easier to no-dab on a fatbike than a normal bike. Trust me.
    one by nine works just fine but single speed is all ya need
    BTW, itís called ďsarcasmĒ; youíre soaking in it!

    Maybe 5% easier on a fatbike. Maybe 80% easier on an ebike.

    Wow, you would think they would want to make it harder, so that they would be the only ones earning raffle tickets......

    Obviously done by weak minded individual(s) who can't clean it, but still feel entitled to credit for doing so.
