George Wyth MTB Race Recap

First of all, kudos are deserved by CVAST, Race Director Lee Geisinger, and all of his volunteers for pulling off the 4th Annual George Wyth MTB Race!

Well done to all!

Lee has done an excellent job as race director over the years. This year it included working full time, going to school full time to work on his PhD, and of course family. Lee, you’re the man!!! Today was Lee’s last hoorah (for now) as race director for the George Wyth MTB Race as he has his dissertation to attend to this coming year. So Lee will be passing the race director reins on for another to take the helm next year. We’re all behind you, Lee, as you get that PhD finished, and we thank you so much for all you have done for the George Wyth MTB Race and IMBCS! We do appreciate it.

Two inches of rain fell on Thursday evening and Friday morning in the Waterloo area, so the flat course at George Wyth was bound to retain a bit of that rain water. In spite of that, the CVAST trail crew led by Chad Reisinger had the dirt whipped into excellent racing conditions for all of us. We only had three mud bogs that we had to race through today, and yours truly jackknifed like an 18 wheeler on ice on one of them which led to a nice soft landing in very warm and deep mud. As I lay prostrate on the ground thoroughly stuck in the mud, Dave Roll bunny hopped over me and announced he was coming through. Thanks Dave! 😉

George Wyth MTB Race Is on Schedule!

We all get nervous when it rains, but don’t worry, George Wyth is on for tomorrow, Sunday, August 14, 2016!

Official word from one of the race organizers, ‎Chad Reisinger:

To answer you questions, yes the GWMTB race for 2016 is on as scheduled. Yes we have had a lot of moisture the last few days and it has made some wet spots. I have ridden the trail twice today and I got to say it is a very fun course this year. We even had a great trail ride today on the race course. Yes you will have some mud. But it is fun mud. It was drying up fast this morning, and most of the standing water should be gone. We do have one reroute we had make, as Alice Wyth Lake level is just way too high. But even the reroute is fun and fast. Registration should be available by 8am at the race.

Should be an awesome race tomorrow, see you all in the morning.
