MZ SCARS "Sundays Crazy Afternoon RaceS". Sorry, that's the best acronym I could come up with. One or two Sunday afternoons a month, when we have good weather predicted we will be having TT's and short course races at Mt. Zion. We will post up on the local forums when this will take place and of course schedule them around series races that we know about. These will be free races just for fun and racing for pride.
We will have the first one this Sunday, March 6, at 2pm. We will have a time trial starting at 2pm. After, based off the TT results, we will form evenly matched teams and have a short course relay race. After that, we can have a group ride for anyone who wants to ride some more. Should be a lot of fun and some good training. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.
MT. ZION trail in Brookhaven will be the host site of NOMAMBO's next Time Trial.. The date is set for June 12th 1:00.
This event is expected to draw a large group from N.O., Baton Rouge, and of course Mississippi..
The Time Trial is 1 lap, the rider with the fastest time wins.. riders will start in 2 Minute intervals.. cost to race..$10.00 per rider.. the money raised will be shared between Mt. Zion and NOMAMBO..

Here are the details on the first ever "Go Pro or Go Home" Mini Super D at Mt. Zion bike trails.
When: Start at 5pm Saturday May 5, 2012
Where: Mt. Zion Bike Trail, from top of first hill to the bottom at the first bridge.
Details.... Will be a time trial start with riders going in random order. The route is part of the regular XC course and doesn't have anything "big or technical" that you can't do on you xc bike! There is one small jump that is "optional". There are 6 dirt berms on the route and it should take less than 2 minutes to run.. Winner will be the one with the fastest time... In the event of a tie, each rider will make another run to break tie.
So what does it cost and what do you win? Cost is free to all registered racers. 5$ for anyone not registered to race Sunday. You can also pay 5$ to run an additional lap if time allows. So what will you win, either a GoPro HeroHD or a GoPro Hero2. Not sure which one it will be yet. One will be the Downhill prize and the other will be a door prize for those who pre_register but either way, an awesome prize for free! The other top 5 will recieve their choice of a FOX or DPO t'shirt.
So you want a chance to win a GoPro, line up and find out how fast you really are. To win it will take great bike handling skills with the ability to accelerate and maintain speed through technical sections.
That was a well organized race on a fun and interesting trail. The Jan Morgan award was very touching!
I crashed hard on the first lap and came home with a broken helmet, a concussion, a grade 1 AC separation on my shoulder and feeling like I was run over by the Mt Zion bus a couple of times. I didnít realize how bad I was hurt till after the race. I managed to finish 2nd in Cat 1 somehow, Iíll be back
