NSMBA Toonies Start This Week!

Date Jun 12, 2013

The NSMBA Toonie Enduro Series fires up this Thursday evening on Mt. Fromme. Races will be every Thursday night for the next 6 weeks straight. Racers will be timed using a RFID timing system with 3 timed stages per race night. Sign in will be at the 2nd gate on Fromme between 5:30pm and 6:30pm.

Courses are set out in a loop with the main climbs being untimed liaison sections; the special stages are the fun sections of trail we love. Special stages will be at least 80% descending.

NSMBA has invested in SportIdent RFID timing system. This takes the complication out of timing and will allow for a rolling start. Come sign in get your timing card then set off on your own pace. If you happen to leave work 5 minutes late or get stuck in traffic not need to stress about missing the mass start.

The first course will be on the north side of Mountain Highway:

Liaison Stage – Climb to 5th switchback, untimed
Special Stage – Crinkum, Kirkford, Cedar, timed
Liaison Stage – Cedar to Upper Griffin, untimed (this is really short)
Special Stage – Upper Griffin, Lower Griffin, King of the Shore (first two switchbacks very small climb), timed
Liaison Stage – King of the Shore, Mountain Hwy to Floppy Bunny, untimed
Special Stage – Floppy Bunny, timed

Races will run every Thursday night until July 18th.
