    We are very excited to announce that we have added an Equine Team entry for the Sub-9 Death March! This is a huge move advocacy wise and we are excited to show clubs around the country how these two user groups can work AND PLAY together! As we move forward with bringing new trails to Yellowwood State Forest and the potential to connect these trails with those in Brown County State Park it is beyond important for the horse groups to be on board with the mountain bikers.


    The equine teams will NOT be racing. This is a "fun-ride" for them. They do not have any mandatory check-points, but will still ride to as many as stops as possible and will still take a photo in front of the cemetery sign. They are warned ahead of time that this is cycling even that typically draws approximately 400+ cyclists and they should not even consider the event if their horse is not OK with bikes. Equine teams are encouraged to come out and camp side-by-side with us for the weekend and to be a part of the fun!


    This is a great case study and we are setting an example for other clubs around the country. Please show your support for this ground-breaking event!

    Just two weeks left for Early Bird pricing... then cost goes up $10 per rider.

    Don't forget to pre-order your 2014 Sub-9 Death March event poster. We are also excited to announce a "Cowboy Breakfast Buffet" is now available on Saturday morning before the ride. Enjoy a selection of breakfast goodies such as scrambled eggs, waffles, cereal, toast, oatmeal, OJ, coffee and more for just $9!

    Go to Death March for all the info and a link to register!

    cx or mtb?

    which bike is better for this race?
    cyclocross or mountain bike?

    I know its always a matter of preference but which bikes tend to do better time wise?

    signed up for this event, cannot wait for it!

    I think last year the top 10 was evenly split (or nearly so) between cx bikes and mountain bikes. It seems like whatever you are most comfortable on is the way to go. Those that identify themselves as primarily mountain bikers tend to ride mtb's, while the roadies are more apt to ride cx bikes.
