    Way to step up and put together what should be a fun series! I may be able to break away from the DORBA endurance series for one of the January/February events.
    When I'm not riding I help beginner mountain bikers learn new skills at Texas Mountain Bike Trails.

    The shirts are jerseys, 3 back pockets, mesh side panels, reflective bits. You can order whatever size you want, but, yeah, jerseys are generally a tighter fit than a Hanes beefy T...

    Please note: You don't win the jersey, you win the option to purchase one at cost. We're not taking any fees for these races so we've got no cash to buy jerseys. This series is in it's infancy so there is potential we'll pick up some sponsors that could help with those costs but we're making no promises.

    You could donate money at one of the events or, even better, you could volunteer to help with sign-up and racer splits at the start finish.

    If you or someone you know might like to help us out, we'd love a volunteer or three to hold down a sign-in/check-in table. In the morning you'd check off names (or add names of those not pre-registered) and then during the day when a rider comes in you'd just need to write down the time. That will give us an accounting of who is on course and give riders a record of their lap times (sample results page). After the first lap when riders get spread out a bit it should be a pretty chill day at the park.

    email us if you're interested, let us know what times you could be there between 8am-6pm.
    info at atx100k dot com

    Thanks guys - we've got over 40 registered at meetup and we know of a few that are coming but aren't yet registered. We're expecting 40-50 riders; should be an awesome time.

    Hey guys,

    Muleshoe is 20 days away - it's gonna be a great ride. There will be prizes for the first 3 men and first 3 women to finish up the 100k courtesy of Texas Cycle Werks. They are also going to have their best mechanic out at the race keeping the bikes rolling!

    Check out the Muleshoe page on our website for the details of the race.
    Muleshoe - ATX100k - The 6-Pack Series

    We're just doing this because we love it. It's free, grassroots and AWESOME! See you guys out there!

    We've changed up the prizes a bit. Instead of going to the top finishers, we're going to have a drawing from all those that finish the 100k so that all finishers have an even chance at the loot!

    Also, Texas Cycle Werks is giving ATX100k registered riders a big discount on trail lights! TCW is offering a 20% discount for pre-orders and a 15% discount on lights in stock. If you're going to order some lights, do it soon so you can get a ride or two under your belt with your new gear!

    Muleshoe is upon us! Things to know:
    *Be there by 7 for check-in. We'll have waivers at this race. You can pre-print yours to save time at check-in, get it at the website.
    *Pre-race meeting starts at 7:15.
    *Ride begins at 7:30.
    *You have 10 hours to finish the ride before the Superbowl starts - no excuses!

    We're going to have riders spaced out into 4 Starting Groups (SG), each starting a few minutes apart. You'll choose your own SG at check-in. Your SG will be recorded next to your name on the timing sheet and all your lap times will be offset by your SG offset. SG1 will be for racer types planning on riding a XC race pace for the whole ride (finished Walnut ride in ~6-6.5 hours). SG2 will be experienced endurance riders going for a good finishing spot but doing it at an endurance pace. SG3 will be for those riders who are newer to endurance riding and don't want to feel the XC pace guys breathing down their necks. SG4 will be for riders who want a chill pace, potentially doing a group/pooled resource plan.

    Please read the course notes on the website if you haven't already. Don't forget your lights when packing up!

    Thanks for coming out everyone. We had 27 riders turning cranks around Muleshoe on one of the most picture perfect days to be on a bike in recent memory. We rode 156 laps and 1,263.6 miles.

    Big congrats to our 13 finishers. Ron Acuna was the first to finish the 100k in 6:31 (go check out those lap times)! Special mention goes out to the very dedicated Robert Gorsenger who finished well after dark in 11:59.

    To determine who got the prizes from Texas Cycle Werks, 13 numbers were placed in a bowl representing the 13 finishers' places. 5 were drawn out randomly. The winners were places 12, 10, 9, 5, 8.
    -Tony Lumpkin
    -Robert Klienschmidt
    -Albert Yarusso
    -Lance Gay
    -Joe Wieck
    Your prizes will be at Texas Cycle Werks. Ask for Phillip (512) 892-2453.

    Thanks to everyone who came out and challenged themselves. Congratulations to the 13 who fought through the pain and congratulations to the winners of the drawing!

    Don't forget to swing by TCW and thank them for spending their day off wrenching for you guys! Thanks to all our volunteers for helping to arrange the site, mark the trail and run check-in. You guys rocked it!

    Results are posted here in a sortable spreadsheet.

    Reimers pre-ride this SATURDAY May 11th. Meet at the mountain bike parking lot, wheels down at 9:15 sharp. First lap will be no drop, 2nd and subsequent laps will be faster. A single lap is ~13 miles (the ATX100k on the 26th of May will be turning 5). There is a very slight chance for rain, but Reimers is pretty sandy and dries out very quickly. We'll keep an eye on the weather and update you if anything changes. Cloudy or not, bring sunscreen, the trail is very exposed. $10 gate fee and they appreciate exact change; also assure the gate keeper you'll wear your helmet any time you're on your bike.

    Volunteer(s) needed for time keeping.

    We have a volunteer to handle the first few hours, but we need help from 10am to about 3 or 4pm.

    Anyone able?

    The race will go on, but the venue may change (50/50 chance) to Reveille Peak Ranch which will be slightly harder, but is excellent in every way.

    The decision will be made by 9am tomorrow morning. Please let anyone you know who is coming to the event (be ready to share our announcement status tomorrow morning on your facebook page) of this potential change and have them check-in here tomorrow morning for the final decision. We want to make sure everyone who wants to ride knows where to find us!

    FYI - Vol, the owner of RPR was excited to host us even at short notice and will be getting the place ready.

    The start times will be the same and will have a cut off time for final lap. There would be 4 or 5 laps on a yet unknown route that would include some combination of the race, lower, and upper loops but not the super-d or pump track with check-ins at the pavilion.

    Thanks for signing up folks. We will make sure you have an event to participate in!

    Reveille Peak Ranch - ATX100k - The 6-Pack Series

    This event location has moved to Reveille Peak Ranch which is a Moab-ish type riding experience with all the slickrock. It also drains super fast and the rocks do not get very slickery when wet unlike the limestone of Reimer's.

    This venue charges $10 per participant at the gate, bring exact change!

    Meet at the Pavilion at 7:30am for a briefing then we will start the first group at around 7:45am. There will be a hard cut-off to start the final lap at 6pm.

    This ride is still self supported, but the facilities are much nicer.

    The route will be developed, mileage tested, and marked today after this last round of rain and will be either four laps or five laps and "around" 100k long. There will be more total elevation gain here, and you will have a somewhat slower average speed as it has more technical sections (not necessarily harder, just more).

    Feel free to funnel any questions you have to the meetup.com comment section or ask here. An organizer will answer them as able.

    The course is marked (Tony and Todd in beast mode)! Notes are up - please read to get up to speed on the course and ask questions here. We are currently trying to build a proper GPX for all you Garmin kids. Get to Reveille Peak Ranch by 7 am so you can get signed in, get your pit set and make the pre-ride meeting at 7:30.

    Results are finished! We had 40 riders sign in Sunday morning and we had 3 finish the entire 100k. Huge congratulations to Matt Barkley for a Herculean effort on a Single Speed. Rumor is he could barely walk and was unable to get his shoes off after he finished. Thad Williams came in 2nd on a geared bike followed very closely by John Russell on a single speed. ATX100k would like to extend a very sincere thank you to everyone who braved the vicious rainstorm to come out and ride an extreme route on an extreme trail at such short notice. HUGE thanks to Todd and Tony Lumpkin. for taking 'one for the team' and coming out the day before the race to scout and mark the route.

    Velo Flow of the race. Since we had 11 riders using Strava, I was able to create flows with all riders named as well as a full race flow. The first link is the full race, 2nd is top 6 times and 3rd is final 5 times. This stuff is awesome!

    The jersey fit kits are at Texas Cycle Werks. You can pay with check at TCW or you can pay with cash at Pace Bend next Saturday. This will be the first order, we'll do another order at/after Emma. Don't forget the 15% discount on accessories and 20% on tune-ups for ATX100k riders when you're at TCW.

    Some images of the fit kit and me wearing the Euro and VPro medium. In my opinion, they fit exactly as I thought they would dropcanvas - instant drag and drop sharing - canvas view

    Go try one on if you've qualified or if you plan to in the future. It'll be better to know your size for sure than to have to guess.

    Do you like free stuff? Get to Pace Bend early because our sponsors are giving away Orange Seal, Toolsafes and T-Shirts BEFORE the race! Also, if you're running tubes and you get a flat, Orange Seal will convert the first 5 flats of the race to tubeless for FREE! Get there by ~6:30, pre-race meeting will be at 6:50ish and we're hoping to send the first group at 7.
