View Full Version : Evidence San Diego Doesn't Totally Hate Mountain Bikers

12-20-2009, 09:45 AM
Yesterday we had the chance to bring Mountain Bike racing back to San Diego. We went well beyond bringing it to San Diego County and took the racers to the heart of the city. We got permits and an approved course map to race in Balboa Park/Florida Canyon!

The turn out was huge, much larger than we expect. We came into the day with 95 pre-registered racers and then we ended up with just about as many day of racers. We ran off a full volunteer staff that included a few SCE members. I'd like to thank Tony (ncttrnl), Paul (Paul), and Jon (Jr_scheibe), you guys made things go a lot smoother. Also, thanks to Paul and Tony Fry for shooting the event and getting some sick photos! If you guys want to come check out our next event on Jan 16th at Elfin Forest.

Here are some shots from Paul:

Here are a couple from Tony:
