The 12th Hour is the Darkest Hour

Sounds great.  Sign me up!  Red Bell is making a splash at the Village this year with it’s Final Descent Series.  It’s a 12 hour race this Saturday, mixing endurance with downhill adrenaline: two of a Jacksonite’s favorite things.  If you aren’t into riding the race, you can always enjoy the after party at Nick Wilson’s.

Cyclocross season is almost here in Victor, ID and we hope that you are planning to join us for Moose Cross.

The Moose Cross Cyclocross Festival will again be our premier event and will take place October 8-9, 2011.

We are excited to announce that Saturday’s Moose Cross race will be held in conjunction with Grand Teton Brewing’s Oktoberfest this year.  Come for the racing, stay for the party!  Your Moose Cross entry includes a FREE ticket into Oktoberfest, a $10 value.

In 2010 we had over 100 racers come from out of town and we look forward to seeing our cyclocross friends from Montana, Utah, Washington, Nevada, and other parts of Idaho again this year.

Pierre’s Hole Race Report from “The” Dave Saurman

Hey Riders, So another session of self abuse at Pierre’s Hole this past Saturday.  Tons of fun.  A great turn out from the locals and others from all over the planet.  And maybe a few from nearby planets?  A leisurely start at 10:15 for the 50 milers.  It was warm, dry and never got above 75 degrees.  Perfect race conditions as the weeks rains made the course tacky.  Some new trail( still a bit bumpy) but good to mix it up.

I had ridden some of the course last Wednesday and Mill Creek specifically was scary with a water runnel right down the middle of the trail.  Thanks to Troy Barry and his crew for making it much more rid able.

The race was fun – though seemed to hurt more than usual.  As the 40+ champ for the last two years, I had a lot to live up to…….or not.  I knew going in there was some stiff competition this year.  A lot of strong contenders not from here.

I had a good start, I had an awesome first decent of Mill creek. I hammered the road up to Bustle Creek decent.  I was amazed how many I passed.  at one point, like 15at once?  The usually long hump up Dry Creek (really painful) and out into Ricks kind of by myself.  Start/Finish and off for the second lap.  Now the pain increasing.  Even better descent down Mill Creek ( as there was no one in front of me) and another good road climb.  An OK descent to the Dry Creek #2.  Now the pain really begins.  I was passed by a few not in my class, and maybe one in the 40 +?  I did not care, I kept pushing forward, but not fast enough.  Finally the top and slowly into Ricks again.  Now I was home.  8 miles to go.  Then I began to Cramp.  The inner thighs.  Damn I hate that.  I popped my last 3 Ecaps and moved on.  It helped for a while, but a mile from the end I started to cramp agian.  Damn.  Then I saw some dude, a 100 miler on his last lap and asked him if he had Ecaps?  He looked, actually stopped in the middle of his race and found none.  I found one last shot of my Egooo and I guess there was enough lytes in it to save me.  I finished.  Yeah.  With no good training except racing, I felt good about my race.  I had record time and ended up 4th in the 40+ and a podium as they went 5 deep!!  Not bad for this fat out of shape geezer.

Just happy for another clean race, no crashes, no bonks, no flats and no mechanicals.

Oh, and congrats to all my buddies for there podiums.  I think just about everyone got a spot.

Cheers, DS

Fiddee Cent Check In!

Gabe “Fiddee Cent” aka “Fiddee” Klamer sent in this excellent report from the innagural PC50 Mountain Bike Race:



One of my all time favorite movies is “Tombstone”.  I’ve often wished there would be a sequel.  Last week while at the Park City 50 I took the liberty to write the screen play in my delusional mind.


The cast of character would be as follows (Some of the names changed to protect the innocent, some of them have not):

  • Doc Holliday  played by Fiddee (Hero)
  • Wyatt Earp played by Womans NEU National Champ (Hero)
  • Curly Bill played by Sam Sweetser (Bad Guy)
  • Virgil Earp played by Junkie (Hero)

The movie will be named “The Shootout At the Park City Point to Point”.  Like all good sequels you have to see the prelude first to really understand what is going on.  So lets take a step back in time at the day Doc first met Curly Bill.


At the starting line Doc had his eyes pealed for a known outlaw that goes by the name of Curly Bill.  Curly Bill was known as “The deadliest pistoleer since Wild Bill…”  Curly Bill was able to elude Doc at the PC 50 by hiding in the Pro Category which was just ahead of Doc at the starting line.  Doc and Wyatt rode together the entire day with their eyes pealed for Curly.  Later at the saloon Doc finds out that Curly finished ahead of him.  Although Doc was happy with his finish he is left with an unsettled feeling.  Their next meeting will be the Park City Point to Point.  There is a score to settle between Doc and Curly.  “So run, you Cole Sport sponsored athlete… RUN!  Tell all the other Cole Sport sponsored athlete’s the law’s comin’!  You tell ‘em I’M coming… and hell’s coming with me, you hear?…  Hell’s coming with me!”
