I am going to ride sweep on the 35-miler for Epic Rides/Show Low Bluff Tour of the White Mountains, a mountain bike race in Show Low. Sat, October 2, but you have to come up the night before and camp or motel. Camping is at venue.
I need someone else who is a pretty good rider to ride with me, since at least 2 sweeps are needed. You don't have to be a super-duper technical rider, but you do have to be able to ride 35 miles of single-track! So, fitness level HIGH, technical ability MODERATE.
The 35-mile part of this race has been totally altered over the past few years and is now mostly single-track. It used to be mostly FS roads.
Volunteers get fed, they also get a t-shirt and some swag. Camping is at the venue, and there is live music at night.
Two really good riders are also needed for the 60+ mile part of the race. (Fitness level RIDICULOUS, technical level ADVANCED.) There is also a 15-mile race on the Panorama Trail, but I was not told if they need sweeps for that one.
Please pm me and I will give you the email address of the volunteer coordinator, plus my bike email address. (Yes, I have a special bike email address.) TRACKS hiking club does the volunteering for this race. A part of the entry fees generally go back into the community, for the hospital.
