SORBA-Athens Twilight Events:
SORBA-Athens/Bike Athens Twilight Kickoff Happy Hour
When: Friday, April 27th 5 - 7:30 p.m.
Where: Little Kings Downtown Athens (Map)
Description: SORBA-Athens and BikeAthens would like to get all the cyclists in Athens (commuters, mountain bikers, recreational cyclists, road racers, etc) out for an event under the same roof. Too often, these various cycling communities do not mingle or even know each other. Twilight is a great time to bring folks together. We will have a table setup with info about SORBA-Athens and Bike Athens. We'll also be selling our Single Track Mind Blend Jittery Joe's fundraising coffee, the last nine remaining custom SORBA-Athens pint glasses, and, if we are lucky, our new SORBA-Athens t-shirts will be ready. No cover charge. Drink specials: $3 draft beers and well drinks. Printable Flyer(Please Share) Come have a beer with us!

Jig tire test is done WITHOUT the rider on the bike. Tread pattern on tire is open – slick or knobs, your choice. 26", 27.5" or 29" wheels allowed. Gearing is open. Fully rigid, hard tail, or full suspension bikes are all OK. Click Here to Register to Race We strongly recommend you register online. However, you can register Saturday morning at EACP from 7 to 9 a.m. (Cash or Check only unless you register online).
More Details: This race is USAC sanctioned. This means that they have to list you in a category. The category thing is just for USAC purposes. The competition is OPEN, meaning all racers compete against each other: men, women, old, young, fast, slow, new, experienced - just one big melting pot. BUT when you sign up you must pick a category. If you register online and don't know which category to sign up for, sign up for category 3. Ignore anything about Pro on the registration page unless you have a Pro MTB USAC license. As for awards/money, ignore the stuff about medals on the registration page. Prize Pool is $500 (10 deep) for the Finals only. Facebook Event (check here for last minute updates)
