DINO events this weekend
« on: June 02, 2016, 09:07:50 AM »
This weekend, DINO comes to Brown County State Park.
We hope you'll join in the fun with a trail run Saturday and mountain bike race Sunday.
If you're planning a recreational ride, be advised that the trail will be marked from Friday afternoon through Sunday afternoon for the races. We suggest riding only in the marked directions.
Racing will be in progress from 9 to 11 am Saturday for the trail run, and 10 am to 1:30 pm Sunday for mountain bike race.
Trails in use will include North Tower, North Gate Connector, Aynes (Saturday), Green Valley (Sunday). Bobcat, HP connector, and everything south of HP will NOT be in use at all.
We are looking for help with the event. If you are available Saturday with a bike, we'll have an aid station serving runners cups of water between Aynes and North Tower trails from 9 am to 11 am. Please contact Brian16@DINOseries.com if you can help.
We also are looking for a rider with a BOB (or similar) trailer to help shuttle aid station supplies down to the aid station Friday afternoon or evening.
We will gladly trade a Sunday race entry (or DINO apparel etc) for your help on either day.

I think we've got Saturday's hauling duty covered. May still need a couple aid station helpers for Saturday morning.

What are the plans if we get the rains that are forecasted for the weekend?

Beth, and to some extent myself, will be taking pictures at the DINO Mountain bike race Sunday. We are looking for tips on spots to capture the riders in action. Looking for advice on locations that can be reached with reasonable ease. Tips on where to drive to would be helpful as well.  :D

There are a couple spots you can drive to. North Tower lookout, which is the top of the road climb, and north gate shelter lot, which is just around the corner from where the race starts. You could also catch everyone bringing it home on their final descent on the north tower connector trail. You can drive to the middle of that and hike a bit south for some decent downhill action shots. It's the trail between the north shelter and the fork that splits to either GV or NT. I think most other sections will require some hiking. Let's hope we dodge a weather bullet.

This update was posted 1 hr ago on the DINO Mountain Biking Facebook page:  It looks like we WILL be racing tomorrow. Substantial rain seems to be past. We'll walk the entire course tonight and drain puddles and inspecting with HMBA trail care gurus. If you want to join the fun, extra tools are available, meet at 7:15 near the finish line / DINO box truck.

The race conditions were great. No mud at all. Our Florida group came up to race and was very impressed. Dino did a fantastic job as usual.

Over 700 taken, but in the the process of culling the herd.  Beth took the majority and I filled in after my race.

We will get them up ASAP.
