"Hawke Races" Homepage
A loose series of events to help fill the gaps in the NM calendar.
The national champ visits NM.
Note there will be no practice on 4-4-17 as I will be out of town.
Vineyard Ditchroad Circuits 3/14, 21 & 28 6:30PM start preride at 6:15. (Tuesdays)
Directions: Take Edith north from Alameda about a mile to a little street on the left called Great Place. Park on the side of Edith north of Great Place, wherever you can find room. Please do not park south of Great Place as that will be on the course. If you ride a bike just get off the bikepath at Alameda, go left over the bridge and almost all the way down. Then do a 180 left back to Edith and then go north about a mile to the start. Doable on an MTB or a road bike, but a CX bike is best. About 1.5 mi of ditchroad and 1 mi of pavement per lap. Because the ditchroad is slower, probably 3/4 of the riding time will be on the dirt. We will start on Edith going south from Great Pl.
MTB Short Track @ N Valley Bike Park. 4/11, 4/18, 4/25, Preride at 6:30, start at 6:45. (Tuesdays)
Tentative. Directions: (pretty close to the Vinyard Circuits) Take 2nd about 1/4 mile north from Alameda. Park just east of the bike park. Course will go partly through the jump tracks and partly out on the ditchroad outside of the park. We will do some of the smaller jump lines. Doable on a Cross bike, but a MTB is better.
There is no entry fee for these, but if you want to bring a fiver or so to cover my gas and such, that would be cool.
More Tuesday MTBs coming probably.
4/16/17 Oak Leaf Circuit CANCELED not going to happen this spring. Just too busy. Maybe in the summer.
