Hello HUNDO Racer!
Three days until the 2nd Annual Bailey HUNDO, and we hope you're as excited as we are!
More logistic updates for you:
1. MANDATORY RACER SAFETY
MEETINGS AND PACKET PICK-UP:
2. BERGER PROPERTY
3. PRE-HUNDO PARTY AT
4. Parking and Bailey Day! For those of you who do not know, Bailey HUNDO race day is also Bailey Day, the summer celebration of the proud community of Bailey, Colorado! As a result, THERE WILL BE ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING IN BAILEY FOR HUNDO RACERS. All racers must park as the sawmill (last year's finish line) and ride your bicycle back to the starting line in Bailey. It is an easy 20 minute ride from the parking back to Bailey. That being said, we hope you (or your family and friends!) get a chance to enjoy Bailey Day festivities.
5. Aid Stations: We have 10 aid stations, fully stocked with water, fruit and the full complement of Hammer Nutrition products. You will be able to travel light and drop a bag at Aid Station 6 - end of the Colorado Trail, section 2 (check out the course here!).
6. Medical support: We have four awesome Doctors from Sports and Family Medicine keeping a watchful eye on everyone on the course. That being said, I hope you will agree that we hope that these four Docs will be bored out of their minds. Please ride responsibly and make sure to have fun and stay safe!
7. Donations and Fundraising: WE WILL HAVE A FUNDRAISING PODIUM FOR THE TOP THREE FUNDRAISERS with prizes. Keep the pressure up, and we hope everyone exceeds their pledge amount! How can you not want to support our awesome nonprofit partners even more by hustling your buddies or co-workers for an extra $10 donation here and there? The Colorado Mountain Bike Association, Colorado High School Cycling League, Trips for Kids Denver/Boulder and Kids On Bikes are all worthy and amazing organizations. And a quick reminder--for the $150 minimum donation you get a t-shirt, for $250+ you get a jersey (awesomely unique and awesome--designed by Primal) as well and for $50+ you get an autographed poster.
8. Course report - Looking like about 85 degrees and dry, with possible thunder shower in the afternoon. The last 1.25 miles to the new finish area has been improved, and the bushes along the single track down to the river at Aid #6 have been trimmed.
Well, finally, we just can't say enough how much we appreciate your support and your enthusiasm for the sport of mountain biking, our nonprofit partners--not to mention your love of early-season hundred-milers! We will be seeing you soon.
Banked turns and rollers, Noah and the Bailey HUNDO Team
