    Vintage XC Category - Iron Horse Bicycle Classic - Memorial Day, Durango, CO

    VRC Peeps - This year the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic is hosting and putting a lot of weight behind a new vintage MTB category in the cross country race.

    We're hoping to get a bunch of the local heros (Ned, Herbold, etc) to come out on vintage race bikes and compete, so this is a pretty sweet opportunity. Regardless, there will be some amazing bikes being raced and on display. The event is run on in-town trails and goes through local bars and shops downtown. Its a real good time.

    Durango is a bit tough to get to but it's worth it. Commit to a couple day trip and we'll show you a good time. Its the Iron Horse, it's Durango, it's May. You really can't go wrong with all three.

    Info / Registration online at ironhorsebicycleclassic.com

    This is sweet. Besides Keyesville, are there any other races with vintage categories? Seems like the way mountain bike racing is going, with more emphasis on the amateur participants and the overall experience, vintage categories could be a good thing.

    Last year before the race, I was standing at the bar ordering a beer, and nobody realized they had just opened the course for warmups. I started to back away with my Wanna Get Rye, and almost got hit in the head by a handlebar as some guy wheelied through the restaurant. Gotta love Durango.

    Agreed. Seems like it might be popping up here and there. I think it takes us (the VRC community) to get that ball rolling though. Doesn't make sense for them to do it if the people aren't signing up. But seeing as how Vintage MTB Racing isn't rider ability, age, or gender dependent....you can fill the class more than say....clydes or tandems. The 'fun' angle is a good one.

    It would be great to see this started here on the East coast. We have some classic sites including Hunter and Mount Snow as well as a bunch of local courses with the typical root and rock single track, fire road, etc.

    You guys are just teases though. All talk.... There was a Fat gathering. I think Bushpig also tried to get an East Coast ride together.

    First Flight has made several efforts as well. They're first two years were pretty amazing - lots of vintage celebs and bikes - but not many in attendance.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Ahhhh, sometimes the preliminary teasing makes the ride much better - particularly in non-race events. The more experienced riders know this.

    As far as the East coast things mentioned, Bushpig and I have communicated about such a ride as recently as last week. The 2011 event Yo linked - I can only say I will do my very best to attend if there is another.

    Is there a link to the previous events organized by Jeff and FFB?

    Thanks

    Rad. There's only 1 "course" that everyone rides, and yeah, it goes through Steamworks.

    I wish I could have made this one at Minnewaska but I'd already moved to Cali. Lots of nice ride possibilities out that way.

    A slingshot would be awesome. Always turns heads.

    Major props to Ameybrook for anchoring/organizing lots of Colorado based events. You guys have some of the best trails in America.

    I have a trip that weekend already, otherwise, I would have tried to go! Maybe some of the northern Utah guys can try to make it!

    Not quite true, Last year only Pro/Cat 1's went through Steamworks. Everyone else turned down an alley right before. I raced masters last year and didn't go through it, my kids were very disapointed. I was planning on getting my ass kicked in Cat 1 (amazing how a 20 year old NORBA license will still keep you racing Cat 1) just so I could go through the restaurant this year. Should be fun times though either way. If any of you have been in Durango for the Iron Horse you know how much fun the entire scene is the whole weekend.

    One month to go, so we're getting down to it. Some buzz definitely being generated in town. Trails are dry and sun is out so the course is getting packed in nicely. Some rain would help. Right now we have probably a solid dozen committed with some local old school heroes thrown in. Hopefully anyone within a couple hours of Durango can make the trip. It'll be worth it!

    agreed on the road ride. Only reason I'm not racing it is because I hate waiting in Silverton.

    But why should that affect whether you do the MTB race? Come on!

    Too busy this year. But to anyone on the fence, I'm sure it'll be a blast. Look at the Hostel up by the Telegraph Trails for a place too stay, super nice, even when you stumble in after too much merriment. The SSWC Durango hosted was the *BEST* time I've ever had on a bike. I'm going to cry just thinking about the memories....

    If I recall there was a fun one at that event and the course paralleled a paved road for some of it, but that may have been because it was also a Norba national for that year.

    What they should bring back is the Roostmaster!

    Something we discussed yesterday, there will be a gathering Friday afternoon to preride the course and then beers afterwards. We'll do a couple laps downtown just because. Hopefully this will draw out some who chose not to compete during the weekend.

    Quick little promo video. Steamworks is out for us, and that's a bummer, but there's talk of additional jumps, man made rock gardens and other stunts along 2nd ave that we'll hit. Also, the crit will be going on at the same time as the XC race so the flyovers will be in place. That means they'll be a good amount of spectators around the downtown area.

    Haha! Yes, that would be ideal. But I've shipped a lot of bikes over the years, I'm pretty ok at it. I don't want to totally jinx it, but I'm reasonably sure it'll arrive safely. If not, its been fully insured.

    Weekend came and went and it was a blast. Significant amount of props should go to those who came in from out of town. Rumpfy, DoubleCentury, Halaburt... you guys are awesome.

    Sadly, few actual "racing" pics exist because we were all.... racing. But we did have a kickass BBQ with tons of hardware.

    Randoms:

    Yeti ARC and Tomac Sig

    As far as bike dorks go...we're cool dorks. I think. :|


    Ameybrook was a killer host. This weekend was definitely the greatest mtb adventure I've been on thanks to him and his smokin' hot wife.

    Ameybrook is a "him"? I had no idea....

    Is that Raleigh with the Tioga disc still in town? I think I saw it on a roof rack in one of the muni parking lots this morning.

    If so, do me a favor - take it off and ship it to me. I'll pay shipping and a finders fee.
