    1/4 Sansom 66ish (Xpost Texas)

    https://www.bikereg.com/net/sansom-66ish

    Is this the toughest endurance mountain bike event in North Texas? Many will attempt it, few will complete it. Time restrictions are tight, margin for error is slim and the course is difficult. Sansom Park is NOT your typical urban mountain bike trail. 1500' of elevation per each 11 mile lap through loose rock climbs and descents and nary a straightaway over 200 feet long. The trail is fun and challenging and we're doing every bit of it!

    Field is limited to a maximum of 100 participants. We expect to sell out before the day of event but you never know for sure. Event will be rescheduled if weather creates an issue.

    This is a distance event with a timed cutoff(s) not a timed endurance event. Finish times will be logged DNF unless all laps are completed within the allotted time.

    Solo (Elite) Century of 6 laps but with a cutoff based on 90 minute laps (must begin 6th lap by 4:30 pm). 6 laps is going to be very tough to complete. You don't have to be Pro or Cat 1 to participate but we may limit this field to experienced single track endurance racers based on the technical difficulty of the course.

    Solo (Sport) Half Century of 3 laps with no cutoff time. 3 laps in a day will be plenty tough for most mortals. This should be an extremely well rounded field.

    2 Person Relay (Men, Women, Co-ed) 6 laps with a cutoff based on 90 minute laps. Relayers must alternate laps so each rider must ride 3 laps for the team to complete the course. No individual rider will be allowed to ride consecutive laps. Organizers reserve the right to modify course as needed for weather and trail conditions. This will be an all weather event. Course may be rerouted to to streets/urban/Trinity Trails route if singletrack is closed.

    It looks like we finally have weather on our side. Please prereg to save some money ($20) and it ensure we have enough food and portacans. We may require relay teams to prereg so stay tuned. It takes a bit of finagling to make the teams work right in the timing system. Feel free to post up if you have any questions.
