12 Races + 5 Venues = Best Season Yet
We started the 2013 season in April, in the SLC valley at Corner Canyon, then we moved on up to Round Valley & Deer Valley Resort for May + June, then we threw in a new amazing venue, Snowbird Resort, and we topped it all off in August at 8,000 feet amongst the timber & moose at Solitude Resort. If you thought that was the best season yet, just wait until 2014 take way.
As a result of the amazing participation the MidWeekMTB -race series’s dedicated community we where able to contribute the following:
- 200+ hours of trail volunteer work spread between Park City & Solitude Resort
- $1,000 cash donated the Mountain Trails Foundation in collaboration with Deer Valley Resort
- $500 cash donated to the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation in collaboration with Snowbird Resort
- And JUST at the final race, $7,000 in cash awarded to the top podium finishers & another estimated $8,000 in sponsored prizes spread throughout the raffle & nomination awards.
- Not to mention the grin contribution our riders that they offered family and friends on race day.
A big shout-out to Mark Miller Subaru, the 2013 Title Sponsor, who not only have some amazing BBQ’n talents, but have been essential to the series success.
Applause and salutations to our 3 extraordinary venue sponsors, Salt Cycles (Corner Canyon & Snowbird) + White Pine Touring (Round Valley & Deer Valley Resort) + Fezzari (Solitude Resort). These shops and their dedicated emps who never failed to support each race with great vibes & killer raffle goods go above and beyond to stoke out the series.
Big Ups to the Young Riders Organization – not only for supporting us with Deb Lovci (our wondrous kids coach) but also for helping champion our races with volunteers.
Additionally we’d like to offer some high’5s (down-low + up-high) to: Jaybird Gear, Ramp Sports, Utah Vacation Homes, RaceLeap, Kuhl Clothing, Scheels, Atmosphere Studios, Shimano-Pearl Izumi, Athletic Republic & DNA Cycling.
And a big Aloha Shoka to: ProGold Lubricants, Ellsworth Bicycles, Vega Sport, SAG Belts, Competitive Cyclists, Beardo Wear, Automated Business Products, Revolution Bicycles, Monkeylectric, Epic Brewing, Summit Bike Club, Complete Nutrition, Ski Utah, Static, Snowbird Resort, Deer Valley Resort & Solitude Resorts.
Without the corroboration of our 2013 sponsors mentioned above our grin factor would be no where near as huge – support those who support the series you love.
We’d also like to thank all of our volunteers, without their help, the races would not operate as smoothly nor be as fun as they are – SO THANK YOU!
