Black Beard Non-Results...

The race may have been cancelled, but the shenanigans went down like nobodies business.  If you missed out you missed out. It was a sight to behold at the Pirates Lair where time bonus' were a blazing and non-race contests of skills happened in the dark, cold moonlit night. Sitting around a campfire, a few true and brave souls warmed and prepared for stardom - that and to gain series points towards the big win.

We won't go into too many details about the snow cave squeeze contest or the fat bike chariot racing, but almost everyone gave it a go and I believe everyone got a prize. Results are below.

Pirate cXc Winter Night Race Series - Race No. 2 - Black Beard, official course map (click to enlarge).

Race is THIS SATURDAY! Get Pumped, get Psyched and be ready for some PAIN!
Black Beard is twice the length as the Redrum course with many hard and steep climbs that will leave your quads blazing. We also have a few surprises for you in the form of new obstacles and the new pain-train section. 
Most of you will probably end up sitting on the couch eating Peeps with your hands in your pants, maybe even talking on the phone to your mom about how the storm of the century is keeping you on lock down. Just so you know in advance, WE ARE RACING, RAIN, SNOW, SLEET OR HAIL. This is a Winter Night Race after all, not some sissy love festival. Be there.
For those of you whom have yet to find your spine, better get to it. We have only a handful of spaces left for this event and the Pirate Booty is out of control! Keep your eyes peeled for the rendezvous and Race info email coming to your inbox on Friday.


New Sponsor...

Kona Bikes is sponsoring our Winter Night Race Series for 2013. They sent a LOAD of goodies for YOU to take home from our races. Need a new fork or some handlebars? We got em'.

REDRUM Race Footage...

Thanks to Speeding Jesus, we have proof that this race never really happened, really...

All registered racers will receive an email 24 hours before the race with info on the rendezvous location (within 30 min. drive of downtown KC). We will meet at this location on race day, then do a group neutral roll-in to the race course. You WILL NOT be able to drive to the actual course. Spectators are welcome, however they too will have to RIDE A BIKE to the course, about a ten minute ride. Bring what you need for pre and post race with you (backpack!). Race time will be approx. 1 to 1-1/2 hour(s). We will then all, as a group, roll back to the rendezvous point for the awards ceremony and after party.
Pirate cXc races are brutal, dangerous and far from the norm. It's a mix of fun, foolery, XC, CX, urban and kid-like riding styles. Think short-track dirt racing with surprises. If you are in general, a pussy or straight-edge - this is not the race for you. It's a group ride/party. 

Best of luck!

If you're registered, your name will appear HERE. Please allow 24-48 hours for you to be added to the 2013 registered offenders list.
