We are cancelling the 70-mile event, as there will not be nearly enough time to complete the distance. If you are pre-registered for the 70-mile, you are welcome to race the 35-mile event at 1pm.

Quite a bit of rain fell this morning on the park, and the trails are very wet. They were dusty dry yesterday, so we are hopeful this rain will soak in and the trails will become rideable later today.

As of now...
1pm -- 35 mile start
3pm -- 15 mile start

If anything changes we will update this site by 11am. Sorry everybody.

Less than 2 weeks!

Hi all. Yep, we're still here...Kevin and I have been working on finalizing details of the "Inaugural" 2011 Blue Mound Enduro. It's not really our first race, but it's the first year of the distace format instead of the time format. I know the distances seem low compared to other races in the WEMS series...I can hear the skepticism already.

"Only 70 miles for an endurance race?" You can trust us when we say that race times will be in line with the other races in the series.

All of the race distances (70 mile, 35 mile, 15 mile and High School) will use the same course. That includes the steep climbs and fast descents of the Over Lode Trail as well as the relenetless technical sections of the Chert Dip, Serpentine Climb, and Basalt and Pepper Trails.

We've got some great sponsors on board for this year's race so check out their websites by click in the banners to the right.

Uphill Grind will be here with mechanical support, limited replacement parts avialable for purchase, and coffee!

Planet Bike will be providing swag for our raffle.

There may be a few surprises too!

Start time is 10:00 AM Saturday the 20th for the long event!

We hope to see lots of you there!

New Format for 2011!

Hey everybody, we are excited to announce that we are changing the Blue Mound race to a distance format, and starting our longest event at 10am. This later start time will give more racers the option of driving to the event the morning of the event. No more 3am wake-ups or camping required.

The new events are:
70-mile starting at 10:00am (8 laps)
35-mile starting at 1:00pm (4 laps)
15-mile starting at 3:00pm (2 laps)
All distances will use the long course from the past two years. Each lap is approximately 8.6396874 miles with 1.7576 furlongs of climbing (yes, Nate and I have had a few).

We think everyone will be excited about these changes, and you better show up in force this year or it might be your last chance! We are hard at work lining up our sponsors and planning for the event, so check back often for the latest updates.

Thank you!

Thank you to all our volunteers, racers and sponsors for helping to make our race a success. With all the rain we got (again) on Friday night, we delayed the 12-hour race to a 10am start. Once the race got underway everyone seemed to be having a great time. Lap times were only slightly slower than last year and we had no major injuries, just a few scrapes.

Congratulations to Randy Wegener for winning the Gary Fisher Rig singlespeed, and to the dozens of winners in our Planet Bike, REI, Hammer Nutrition and Ale Asylum raffle.

Please help us spread the word about our event, and we'll see you next year! You should start seeing posts here about next year's race in a couple of months.

Thanks again,
Kevin and Nate
