Bone Bender Set for April 18th

We got word today that there is some crazy rumor that the Bone Bender is changing dates. This is completely false.

The Bone Bender 3/6 Hour MTB Odyssey is on for Saturday April 18th, 2009. Registration opens at 9:00am. Rider meeting at 11:45am. Mass Start (Solo and teams) at 12:00 noon.

The Smithville Trail crew has done a great job of repairing the trails from the recent onslaught of rains.

Race bible, with complete details and course maps, will be available next week.

***Bone Bender Postponed***

The official word from the trail boss....

Well folks, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but this latest round of rain just put us over the top on soaking the trails and making them un-rideable for this coming weekend. Sorry but we will have to postpone the Bonebender MTB race until the scheduled make up date of April 18th comes around.

I am just as bummed as you are about this but the volunteers who build and maintain all these sweet trails will appreciate your respect of the trails by not wanting to damage them with a race in muddy conditions.

Thanks for your understanding and I look forward to seeing all of you at the Bonebender MTB race on April 18th!

John Harter,

Bone Bender Update

We have received a lot of emails regarding current course conditions for this weekends Bone Bender 3/6 Hour MTB Odyssey. Currently the trails at Smithville Lake are closed due to recent snow fall and rains. We are watching the weather closely and hoping that any more rain stays away giving the trails time enough to dry for Saturday's event.

In the event that we have to postpone the event to April 18th, 2009, we will make that final call by this Wednesday.
