Beverly Fat Tire Frenzy is postponed due to weather.
Official word from the Beverly Fat Tire Frenzy race director, Noel Kehrt:
Overnight precipitation and cool temps have left trail conditions in poor conditions. I’m not comfortable at this point with starting this race based on possible trail damage and rider safety. We will be pulling the plug on today and will begin discussing rain dates early this week. Sorry to drag everyone along on this.
All races delayed 2 hours tomorrow (5/1/2016) due to rain.
Official word from Beverly Fat Tire Frenzy race director, Noel Kehrt:
The trails got an inch of rain. They are wet on top but still hard as a rock. We’re planning on a 2 hour delay for all races at this point. I’ll be out here early tomorrow should we get more precipitation. If we’re going to cancel, you’ll know by 7am. But right now, things look good. Thankful for upland trails with sandy soil.
Next up for the IMBCS is a return for the 2nd consecutive year to Cedar Rapids for the Beverly Fat Tire Frenzy this coming Sunday, May 1st. Race Director Noel Kehrt and LAMBA have whipped the trail system into Spring shape.
This will be our second XC race of the 2016 season, but will also be our first 4 Hour Marathon Category race of the season, and our first Trail Run Race of the season. These options provide a little something for everyone to enjoy. Last year we had a total of 105 racers take on Beverly Park, and it would be great to bust through that number this year – especially as we show our support for LAMBA and the excellent trail work they do in and around the Cedar Rapids area.
