Registration for the Williams Lake Classic, the first race in the New York State MTB Series, is now open.
For a long time, this course has been one of my favorites. Williams Lake offers the best single track on the east coast. The course is about 5 miles per lap of mostly technical flowing single track, and best of all the cave. Yep, the course actually goes through a cave. There will be a new course for this 2012 edition. The promoters ask that you please do not pre-ride until the Saturday before the event, as the property is private and not open to the public.
The entry fee has been increased to $35 this year to cover the cost of profesional timing and scoring. So no more relying on sub par USA Cycling officials…this year the results will be done in a timely manner and correct.
The online registration closes at 11:45 pm Friday June 8.
CATSKILL MOUNTAIN CATERING WILL BE ON SITE COOKING UP SOME GREAT FOOD TO SATISFY YOUR BELLY AFTER YOU RACE.
