Next up for IMBCS is the IMBCS #3 Summerset Shootout, and the much beloved Summerset State Park (formally known as Banner Pits). The trail is trimmed, groomed, and ready for our first Central Iowa race in the 2016 IMBCS!!!
Race Director Jason Dal and the Rasmussen Bike Shop team have built this event over the past seasons into something that must not be missed. A great and challenging trail for all levels of riders, a Trail Run for runners to start the day off on Saturday morning at 9 am, a Free Entry Kids Race for those 10 and under at 10 am, a Fat Bike race at 10:30 am, and then begins our usual Cat 3, Cat 2, COMP, and Cat 1 XC racing categories. Full schedule for Saturday is HERE. Not to worry yourself about post-race frivolity as a social post-race party in the parking lot next to Extra Credit will take place. This year promises to deliver a nice June race with sunshine and 80 degrees on race day for all to enjoy.
This year includes a new route at the end of Coal Miner’s Daughter and plenty of challenge for all with the sequence of short power climbs on what one would think is a flat course. Not to worry, you will have the foot on the gas on the short power climbs throughout Coal Miner’s Daughter, New Ed Beach, Corner Pocket, and Extra Credit as well as be screaming fast through Riverside, Missing Link, and the connector sections.
Online registration for the event is right HERE.
Come and get some Banner Pits this Saturday, June 4. Ma Nature looks to be playing nice again with Iowans…
