Finally they're back. Spring has sprung and it's time to get the Fivers fired back up for 2016.

Format? Same fun enduro format we've used the last few years. Each night consists of 3 times stages and untimed transfer sections between the stages. The stages are mostly down, but there will always be some up thrown in there.

Where? Fromme and Seymour. Each week we'll release the course details on Monday for that Thursday event. Course will be marked on Wednesday.

How much? Five dollars. You must have a 2016 NSMBA membership in order to participate.

Why? Because it's fun, and all proceeds go to support trail work and trail advocacy by the NSMBA.

Woot! I can't wait. Thanks for putting these on Brian. Some of the most fun racing around!

Linky to Membership and Pre-reg no worky.

Side note: I've been training really hard all winter and putting out some pretty huge horsepower right now. So in fairness to all the other racers you'd best minimize the flat and uphill portions this year.

Biking: As addictive as cocaine, twice as expensive!

Fixed the pesky links that didn't work in my cut-n-paste from the site.

Hmmmm I might need to call your bluff on that horsepower claim. Pepper in some extra uphills on the clock.

Looks like I missed that.

Same as last year. Sign in starts 5:45pm to 6:45pm. So you have an hour long window to start.

I would like to open that up earlier but it's too tight to get volunteers up into place.

Yesssssss this is good. There should be spotters to deduct points (add time) for running up Wardens since it's likely faster.

I yelled that at him while he was pushing his bike up the hill at the whip offs! Highlight of my summer.
