Creek Crossing - Pirate Style...

Death & Taxes is FULL! See you all Saturday Night!

video
The Pirate crew went for a pre-ride of the race course last night. The new bridge was installed and we tested her out. It requires some skill and courage to ride - especially in those conditions (it was a wee bit muddy still from the snow melt). We have 48 hours for the course to dry out, but we are racing no matter the conditions. It was a sweet ride last night and we are psyched for the suffer-fest on Saturday.

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 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 lots of surprises. If you are in general, a pussy, straight-edge, one who likes to bitch, etc. - this is not the race for you. It's a group ride/party and you are required to have fun. 

If you're registered, your name should appear HERE. Please allow some time before you freak out if you're not on the list. We Do send a confirmation email to those registered.

Best of luck!
