TNRL is a series of seven Cross Country mountain bike races held on Thursday evenings. The course is on a variety of trails above village area and in our cross country trail network below the Baselodge. We hope to provide additional trails this summer to augment our race loops. This race series will be on one of three courses throughout the season to highlight different trails, different strengths of riders, while focusing on cross country style trials. All abilities and ages are welcome and encouraged to participate. There is a party with awards and drawings after each race starting at about 8pm. Registratioun, Start, Finish and awards / after party will be at or just slopeside of Ed & Mully’s each week.

You do not have to be a member of a team to race in TNRL. Teams are vying for an end of season bragging rights and pass around trophy, with nearly as much historical significance as the Stanley Cup. – joke-
Teams are comprised of 5 riders with up to 2 alternates for a total of 7 racers. Only the top 5 finishes for a team will be counted towards overall team points each evening. The key to a strong team finish is diversity among members, i.e. don’t have all your teammates competing against one another in the same categories.

Participants Expected: 40 – 100 per race

Registration 5pm – 6 pm. Racers must check in every Thursday night. Location TBA

Check in at E&M’s 5pm – 6pm. Every racer, every week..
Race starts at 6:30 each evening and finishes around 8:pm. Awards ceremonies happen from 8:pm – 9 pm
First 40 to register for the entire season receive a TNRL t-shirt.

COST: $50 for the entire series or $10 per race.

CLASSES: Beginner (one lap), Sport (2 laps), Expert (3 laps). Possibly will add a 50+ age group and a 40+ pound bike group if there is demand (over 5 racers).
