Kincaid XC #2 Results

Results are posted under the Kincaid XC Race Series tab above. Check them out!

We had exactly 100 racers start last night during spouts of rain, a bit of wind and some cloudage. But again and again we heard "perfect racing weather!" Excellent job to all of you! Thanks for coming out and braving the rooty course!

Thank you to those that show up on time (between the 5:30-6:30 check-in window) - this makes it so much easier on the timers. Please understand that when you show up late, you only add to the hectic nature of an already hectic situation. Be mindful and courteous to the VOLUNTEERS that take time out of their busy lives to help and support YOU.

We have awesome bike club apparel for sale! 24 Hours of Kincaid shirts (mens and womens) for $15 and Arctic Bike Club Mountain Racing full-zip hoodies (mens and womens) for $45. They will be available at all the races until they are sold out.

24 Hours of Kincaid info

Just a few important things to note:

1) you may still register or pick up your race number tomorrow down in the Kincaid stadium from 11-11:30am. 

2) the red gate to the stadium will be open around 8am tomorrow morning - once the gate is open, you will be able to drive your vehicle down into the stadium and park/camp.

3) the main red gate (out by the Raspberry Parking Lot) locks at 10pm. we will open it for a 1/2 hour from 1-1:30am so that 12 hour racers that need to go home can. It will then lock from 1:30-8am. Please plan accordingly.

4) if you have an armload of wood you can donate to the burn barrel, PLEASE BRING IT! we are low on wood this year.

5) the grill is for all to use - we will provide the usual BBQ fare, but feel free to stick whatever you want on it. usually it gets going around 6pm and runs most of the night. we don't really have a "grill master," so plan on cooking your own food or having a friend or family member do it for you. sometimes a really nice individual takes over grill duties for a couple of hours - we love those people! 

6) remember, you have to finish your last lap BEFORE the 6, 12 or 24 hour mark. if you are out on the course when your race ends, that lap will NOT count. 

7) we will hold awards for the 6 hour race right after it ends. awards for the 12 and 24 hour race will be held after the 24 hour race ends. we encourage all participants to stay overnight and help support & cheer on the 24 hour racers - they're gonna need it!

8) NO GROUND FIRES. you may have a gas or charcoal grill at your campsite, but no fires on the ground, no fires in a fire container. the only open fire allowed will be the main burn barrel and it will be centrally located by the finish line, food, etc...

9) there will be 4 rent-a-cans down in the stadium for your use!

10) we do NOT provide water to refill your water bottles with. bring a large jug or water cooler for that. we DO provide drink mixes (thank you Hammer Nutrition!) and gels, fizzies, etc... plus BBQ food.  So basically, bring your own water, snack foods & breakfast. 

Questions? EMAIL please.

ps- I just posted the updated XC #2 results...

Great race, everyone! It was a beautiful night, with LOTS of folks enjoying the park. Just a one thing before you click below...

PLEASE REMEMBER TO CHECK IN WITH THE TIMERS IF YOU DO NOT FINISH THE RACE. We wait for everyone to show up - we don't want to leave anyone out on the trails. If you quit partway through the race for whatever reason, YOU MUST let the timers know. Otherwise we stand out at the finish line waiting.

Hillside Short Track: this Thursday!

Hillside Short Track
Thursday, June 13

Times & Fees:
  • Register on-site from 6:00-6:45pm, pre-race meeting around 6:50pm.
  • First group will start at 7pm, the second group will start around 7:30pm. The way the groups are split will depend on who shows up! Typically there will be a faster, more advanced group that will race for 30 minutes plus one lap, and a more novice/intermediate group that will race for 20 minutes, plus one lap. 
  • There is no online registration for this race, so please bring cash or check to the registration table. 
  • $15 for adults, juniors (17 & under) race free! (if you purchased the Kincaid XC Race Series Pass, please note that this race is NOT part of that pass)
Race Beta:
  • Please use your 2013 Kincaid XC series race number (this is only if you participated in last Tuesday's race) - if you have not yet raced with us this year, then we will give you a brand new number!
  • No race map because it will take you just a few minutes to pre-ride the course.  So it's a surprise until you get there! 
  • The course is short - typically under 1 mile (usually takes the expert group around 3-4 minutes per lap) and the goal of the race is to get as many laps in as possible in the time allowed. Once the final lap bell is rung, racers have one more to go! 
  • While this race does not count towards points or is part of the Kincaid XC Series, it is a great race and one you won't want to miss! Bring your family and friends, because it's also a great race for spectators - racers are constantly whizzing by!
Important Deets:
  • Please park in the far north end of the Hillside parking lot (drive past the Hilltop Chalet, into the dirt parking lot). 
  • You must be a member of the Arctic Bike Club to race. Join HERE.
  • Helmets are required.
  • Bear bells are not required for this race.
  • Questions?
