    1/4 Sansom 66ish (Fort Worth)

    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. The relay teams were extremely fun when we did Hell on Wheels at Northshore. I'm really look forward to doing another event with the relays.

    Sansom is getting pounded. Doesn't look good for this weekend as is and we are supposed to get more rain tomorrow. Possible postponement to 11/30 or something in January. Another possibility is to shift to Northshore on 12/21. Will verify trail conditions tomorrow and check with the city for available dates if needed.

    Date has been changed to 1/4. Also, this will be an all weather event this time around. We will set up a MonsterCross/Urban route through Fort Worth and the Trinity Trails as a backup.

    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.

    It looks like temps will be ideal! No additional fee for a one day license. The price is the price. $30 online, day of will be higher. Burgers and cold drinks on site and we'll be rolling out our chip timing system.
