Sorry, No refunds. Organizing a mountain bike event involves substantial upfront costs, including permits, venue rentals, equipment, safety measures, and marketing efforts. These costs are incurred well before the event date and are often non-refundable. A no-refund policy helps cover these costs and allows the event to go ahead as planned.
What type of bike and equipment? Any mountain bike is welcome (We do not have a class for, nor do we allow E-bikes to enter any category).
Can I preride the course? Yes, the course is open to pre-ride during Maricopa Park hrs.
How do I prepare for a mountain bike race? Preparing for a mountain bike race involves strategic training that builds endurance, strength, and technical skills. We recommend training for at least six months prior to the event to ensure maximum performance and injury prevention. Before starting any training program, consult with a coach or experienced rider to determine your fitness level and specific training needs. Incorporate cross-training activities such as running, swimming, or yoga to improve overall fitness and prevent overuse injuries. It is crucial to listen to your body and adjust your training as needed. Overtraining can lead to exhaustion and injury, while inadequate training can result in poor race performance.
For the safety of all riders, no pets are allowed on-course at the race. Any pets at the race must be on a leash at all times, respect park rules, and be supervised.
