    Mountainview 9 Hour - 2009 Edition

    Hello Everyone,

    Well, its that time of year again - the Mountainview 9 Hour is fast approaching. This year, it will take place on Saturday, August 15/09. This event is much like other relay events, except with a few exciting twists, including bonus events that count toward your final result, unique medals, good music, and a giant cheque!

    New for this year, the family challenge category. This category is for families who love to ride. Husbands/wives/kids...no inventing relationships for this one...

    you can find more information, and online registration at www.mountainviewmidland.com/9hr.htm
    Thanks..

    Done.
    The PayPal feature was a nice unexpected bonus...beats bidding on glitter gloves and other MJ trinkets on ebay...

    I've had this race in the back of my mind for a while. I don't like missing a day of work, or the nearly three hour drive, but a part of me still really wants to go for a LONG ride at Mountainview....

    That's the weekend just after my exams are over. I might be game to do a tag team, and share on transportation from Niagara while we're at it...

    I did it last year and it was a ton of fun.. I learned something about my cycling skills.. I just can't do the limbo on a mountain bike.

    I am definitely considering doing it again this year!
    Rider Up,

    Hey, that sounds like a good offer. Early bird registration date is July 30th, so keep it in mind, and maybe we can tear it up on a tag team.

    This is the best course of the year for any of the 8-9 hours. I'll be there for sure. Garage Monster you are welcome to my slice of the pie,

    My payment is processed. Solo it is.

    Lets see if I can keep my bike upright for 8+ hours this year.

    For sure ..

    Definitely looking forward to the 9hr. one of the "more funnerer lesser intenser" races. Don't get me wrong, always good competition (last year we had a team of Ontario Summer Games riders, if I'm not mistaken). But the relaxed atmosphere and singletrack without hordes of riders make for an awesome day of riding!

    I participated last year

    It knocked the crap out of me. Don't know if I took off too fast, the heat, or just all the climbing - but I found that to be the toughest solo endurance race I have ever taken part in. Bonked after 6 laps, hurts just to remember it, but I did get a really nice t-shirt out of it!

    Oggie,

    No camping on site i'm afraid, generally we suggest you check out Smith's Camp http://www.smithscamp.ca/ which is only 5-10 minutes across town.

    teebor,

    Just checked the site, everything is ok on this end. Also, your info is showing up in the registration database. If Paypal continues to be stubborn, send me a PM and we'll sort it out.

    For whatever reason the registration form claimed my email address is invalid - same deal as last year. Fortunately I had another one it likes better.

    For those about to do the Ontario Cup race this weekend. Why not sign up for the 9 hour the weekend after and get to see some more of the trails Mountainview has to offer.

    I'll be pedalling around for just over 9 hours.

    Any idea how long the laps are going to be? Looking at last years results, they appear to be 7-8 km (25-30 minute laps), is that the plan again? Or will they be longer like the other 8 hours (10km, 30-35 min).

    I might be coming unsupported and just want to have the supplies well planned out.

    Not sure at this point Thomas will come up with something good though. Possibly a version of the o-cup course?
