Thursday Night Series – Finale Next Week, Sept 1

The sun is setting sooner, the days are getting cooler, and those who participate in public education must return to school soon. These clues would suggest that summer is ending, but a perhaps more definitive clue is that next week is the *finale* of the 2011 edition of the Mountainview Thursdsay Night Race Series is next Thursday, September 1st.

Come out to enjoy the last race of the season, and stick around for post race BBQ and end of year awards,  as well as to see some photography from throughout the year.  The BBQ will cost only a few dollars, bring your friends and family to enjoy some BBQ and to revel in your glory while you receive your awards!

Thursday Night Race Series Starts next Thursday!

Despite what the (seemingly) colder than average temperatures would have you believe, spring is here, and that means its time to race some bicycles!

The Mountainview Thursday Night Race Series kicks off its 9th season next Thursday, April 22nd. The Just for Fun category starts at 6:30, with all other categories starting at 7pm.

Also, unfortunately, I avoided for it as long as I could, but this year, we’ll have to charge HST. As such, the fees are going up. $10 per rider, 8$ for extra family members, and season’s passes available as well. Even with this price increase, the Mountainview race series is still the best deal around! (trust me, I did the research).

Hope to see you next Thursday!

June 24 Race a Go!

All things considered, the trails at Mountainview are in shockingly good condition, and a quick cleanup of downed branches was all that was needed. With that in mind, tonights race is a go!

Note that as of this writing, Hwy 93 is still closed between Hwy 12 and Balm Beach Road, and a section of King St. is also closed. Please leave yourselves a few extra minutes to detour around. Also, the lights on Hwy 93 are still out nearing Mountainview, please use caution and treat these intersections with care.

All that said, looking forward to seeing everyone out to race!

Possible June 24 Race Cancellation due to Tornado Damage – Stay Tuned

Hi Everyone,

As you probably have heard, Midland was hit last night with a tornado, or something close to it. First off, here is hoping that everyone made it through the crazy weather yesterday evening without any injuries or property damage.

The storm is reported to have tracked directly over Mountainview. We will head in to the hill shortly to do a trail inspection. If they are in particularly bad shape, we will cancel tonight’s (June 24) race. Also, if highway 93 and 12 remain closed, we will also need to cancel the race. Stay tuned to this website, as an update will be posted by 3pm with our decision.

Cheers, TMAS
