    Kids races begin at 11am and will use the beginner loop central to all the race action. Food, mom & dad, and the car will be close at hand for the kids!

    Experts will begin at 12pm to tackle 3 laps! This will be a test! You didn't think the experts would get by with just 2 laps did you?? Expert women start at 12:05 and will do 3 laps as well.

    Of course not, we reserved that start time for the sport riders! At 12:15pm sport riders will venture off into the unknown for 2 body smashing laps! You better bring plenty of water!

    For all you crazy single speeders, we have a treat for you. 3 laps as well! You too will start at 12:00pm with the expert riders. The way we figure if you're crazy enough to do this on a single speed, we might as well make it hurt!

    Below are the details.

    For more information please visit http://www.icorrmtb.org for up to the minute race information!

    Thanks! We will see you at the race!

    Wouldn't you know it? I post the details of the race and it gets rescheduled due to excessive amounts of rainfall in the past couple of days.

    New date for the Sugar Bottom Scramble is now September, 16.

    Here are the details of the reschedule...

    =====

    Due to excessive amounts of rain in the Iowa City area over the last two days, we regret to announce that the Sugarbottom Scramble will be postponed. The new race date will be Sunday, September 16 so mark your calendars!

    Additionally, IMBCS #7 at Ft. Dodge originally scheduled for Sunday, September 16 has been cancelled as an IMBCS series race due to scheduling conflicts with the city of Ft. Dodge. Race director Matt Byrne is planning to reschedule the event at a later date and will post an announcement soon.
