    Treasure Valley Rally & MTB racing/events poll

    We're running a short survey to decide whether the Treasure Valley Rally continues in 2014 following a tough year in 2013. Please take 5-10 minutes of your time and offer your thoughts on the TVR and MTB events in general and thank you for helping us help the MTB community!

    The EFTA promoters meeting is coming up Nov 16 and we'll be shutting the survey down just before then. We'd welcome feedback in this thread too.

    Thanks,
    "the management"
    See you at the Treasure Valley Rally XC MTB race in Rutland, MA on NEW DATE Saturday May 10, 2014

    Survey taken, I've never heard of the event before. Some more communication may help with attendance.

    Thanks everyone for helping with the survey. The results are here for those interested:

    TVR will return in 2014 on a much earlier date: Saturday May 10. Giving the opposite end of the season a try for a change, NECS #2!

    The full EFTA preliminary schedule is up now at http://www.efta.com/PDF/2014/2014%20...20Schedule.pdf

    @gnar602, it's tough reaching everyone for sure. We do posts here (1 thread/year), on our Facebook page (http://facebook.com/treasurevalleyrally), EFTA forum (EFTA Forum :: Index), BikeReg, and our own website. I've entered stuff in other area event listing sites before too. Let me know some good places to post that we're missing and thanks.

    I think your poor turnout this year was largely due to the TVR race being the weekend after the Hampshire100. I did the H100 this year and 1 week wasn't enough for me to recover. I like the TVR race though, so I did it anyhow. Despite two flats on my first lap, hiking out 3.5 miles, bumming a 3rd tube to force myself out to suffer through a 2nd lap (wasn't able to put in any hard efforts due to still not recovered from H100) I still had fun.

    I'm excited to see this race a little earlier in the year now though. I was planning to try to do the 100 mile distance for the H100 this year, and if TVR was the weekend after I was planning on skipping it. Cya in the SS category in May!

    @solo-x, thanks for the endorsement! We've been the week after the H100 for most TVR years and it definitely contributes. We're looking forward to trying out a spring time slot and seeing you there.
