We will be making the Sugarbottom race(s) non-points paying so that we can award 2019 IMBCS Series Overall Winners at the Whiterock race this weekend. The minimum needed races to qualify will be reduced to reflect this, once the points are updated Michael Maney will post a link so you can see where you stand.
There are several racers that can qualify for a series prize if they race Saturday. Don’t pass up the potential of free entry to the 2020 season, get out to Whiterock and claim that card!
I want to give a big shoutout to Mike Frasier for his work on the Sugarbottom races and working with IMBCS to make this happen. When the reschedule happens lets all show up and have a great time at Sugarbottom!
Fire up the Def Leppard, it’s time to race Sugar!

Ready for some singletrack fun this weekend? We’re heading to Beverly Park for a full schedule race including Marathon. Trails are freshly mowed and ready to ride this Sunday, the 9th. I don’t know if we’ll be getting to ride Flowy McFlowface or not but it will still be worth checking out Beverly’s new wooden berm ride!
Firetrucker Beer will be available for after race refreshment.
Registration is here: https://goldfinchcyclery.com/boondoggle/
Can’t wait to see you all there!
Well, this spring/summer is not playing nice to us dirt trail riders. Sugarbottom is just staying too wet for the Sugar Cubed Marathon to happen in June. So we’re going to go for a fall race and ride it in October. Now this might be one of the latest races IMBCS has seen, but fall is perfect for mountain biking.
Mother Nature is a harsh mistress. Due to over 2″ of rain in the last 24hrs ICORR has postponed the race until June 16th. Now we all have more time to get ready to go backwards on some of the most highly regarded trails in the state!
I hope to see you all there!
I’d like to thank Firetucker Brewery in Ankeny for coming on board as our new series title sponsor for 2019. We will have a sampling of their great beers throughout the season, culminating with the State Championship at Whiterock. Please give Dan and the rest of the gang a big thanks next time you ride in to the brewery!
The weather isn’t playing nice, but hey! It’s not snow 😉 The guys at LAMBA will be picking a new date here soon and we’ll get that posted once we know.
See you Sunday 4/7 for the Sylvan Island Stampede 🍻!
To answer the question everyone is asking…YES! Sylvan is experiencing some flooding and YES! we still have enough trail for the race! Just another reason to tackle the adventure of racing at Sylvan Island!!!
Race will follow last years course with some re-routes on the south end of the island. Due to water still rising we won’t have that marked until later this week. Don’t let that stop you from practicing trails are in excellent condition just hit everything you can. Race course is at the link below.
