    Listen! Oredigger MTB Challenge @ SolVista

    The Colorado School of Mines Cycling Team is hosting the Oredigger MTB Challenge @ SolVista on September 15 and 16, 2007. Events include XC, STXC, and Downhill.

    Csm

    I spent 4 1/2 years at that school and never knew about CSM cycling....

    If you are an open cat person can you not race STXC? I don't see an Open Short Track category....

    When did you attend? I revamped the team in 2005 and we've been growing steadily since.

    We will not have an open cat short track event as we don't feel we can attract a field large enough to warrant the extra expenses we'd incur (USA cycling fees, etc). However, we'd love to see you in the XC event!

    That's what I figured with the STXC. I'll do my best to run the XC.

    I was there 1994 to 1999.

    Cool! If I were still racing or fit enough to do it, I'd be there! The XC terrain at Sol Vista is amazing. Super fun dirt singletrack thru aspen groves with great views. I've raced there a handfull of times over the last 10 years - it's always been one of my favorite places to race. The riding is superb.

    After closing their lifts labor day weekend for public use, this is your FINAL CHANCE to get some riding in at SolVista. The lift will be open to racers and spectators during the event.
