    Treasure Valley Rally 2013

    Hello racing fans,

    The sixth annual TVR is on....

    Sunday August 25, 2013

    Quick links:

    Pre-reg here: http://bikereg.com/tvr13 (as always, first 100 pre-reg get choice of race T-shirt or lunch meal)

    Event site: 2013 Treasure Valley Rally

    Flyer: http://teambums.com/tvr/TVR_Flyer.pdf (if you would, please post a copy at your local shop and upcoming races)

    Facebook page: http://facebook.com/treasurevalleyrally


    New for this year's race:

    * Elite cash pool will be $1125, which is 2.5x any previous year. $250/150/100/75/50 for top 5 men and $250/150/100 for top 3 women.
    * over a mile of new singletrack, means less cart road and more fun
    * Carver Bikes/Bikeman.com donated TWO Carver 96er frames ( Original 96'er (Aluminum) ). These may be awarded to a drawing of interested winners...TBD.

    Like last year, the plan today for lap counts is:

    ** novices do ~3/4 lap
    ** clydesdales do 1 lap
    ** sports do 1 3/4 laps
    ** experts/SS do 2 laps
    ** elites do 2 3/4 laps

    This year's SPONSORS helping to make it happen:
    * Platinum Sponsor: UniBank ( http://www.unibank.com )
    * Platinum Sponsor: Bikeman.com ( Cool Bike Parts and Accessories from the Coast of Maine since 1976 )
    * Platinum Sponsor: Zanconato ( Zanconato-splash )
    * Platinum Sponsor: J.F. Cove Insurance ( Cove Insurance Agency - Welcome! )
    * Scott Nelson and Son Artists ( Scott Nelson and Son - Cartoonist/Artist/Illustrator )
    * Kona ( KONA BIKES )
    * Milford 495 Rental Center ( Milford 495 Rental Center, 189 Medway Rd. Milford, MA 01757 )
    * Floods Auto & Tire Center

    PRE-RIDE the course the day before, anytime Saturday Aug 24. Course will be marked, fully pruned, and leaf blown in advance!

    Why race the TVR?

    * It's a real MTB course that will challenge both bike and rider, yet there are a variety of distance options appropriate for your ability.

    * there's a beach, lake, and barbeque on site for your post-race recovery and relaxation

    * it's for a great cause, see what Team Bums and this race is all about in this one page sponsor appeal: http://goo.gl/9ylw7O

    * it's central to the New England region


    Remember to:

    * bring your MOUNTAIN BIKE, LEGS, LUNGS, and SKILLS

    * if allergic to bees, bring your epi pen with you on the race course...seriously. We can't predict what Mother Nature will throw at us so we're better off safe than sorry.


    Thanks for reading,
    Brett

    Attention Elites/Pros: we've nailed down the TVR13 cash payout and it's...way bigger than ever! $250/150/100/75/50 for top 5 men and $250/150/100 for top 3 women. $1125 total, 250% improved over last year! Do the long race and get filthy...rich.

    Also, nine Team Bums volunteers came out to work last Sunday. Most were prepping the race course; it's now pruned and leaf blown (see pics: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...5713632&type=1 ). The trails are literally clean enough to eat off of (we didn't try). Meanwhile, the rest of the group built another 900+' of new trail and only 300' remains until we are DONE!

    We'll have it done Tue Aug 13 then will ride it in with bikes and maybe miniature knobby steamrollers.

    TVR13 course is now complete! Last night we connected the upper and lower portions of the latest new trail in TVSR. We raked, leaf blew, trimmed remaining thicket on the trailbed, and chainsawed all logs in the way. Heading out tonight to ride it. Total course loop distance should be right around 10mi.
