any word on what the prizes are for all the categories? not for my sake of course some of the regular mtb racers are asking. they want to be sure that the race is worth their blood, sweat & tears for 12 hours of work..
1. Freeman Paul ...solo 2. Alphabolt Arnel ...solo...tentative 3. SDGryan Ryan ...solo 4. posible21 Marko '...solo 5. mojiks101 Ian .... solo 6. cobym - solo I'm joining by hook or by crook. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
Does the rider choose the trail, or the trail the rider?
heheh that s really my final minimum lap suggestion, idol Tolits ...I started low for nego purposes ;D But It would help the sport if we got more peeps to join races ...if only to beat their fear of races d ba? funracing = pushing to your "almost limit" and bragging about it => thus inspiring others to join as well since everyone thinks they are better than you ;D ;D heheh
Besides .... @36 laps solo THERE s NO BEERTIME @20-25 laps theres time for 4 bottles or so...that about tells it all

arnel, i share the same view with you pards...since mtb is not really that big a sport yet here in the phils i think at this stage of its development, we should not make it difficult for peeps to join races.
in fact medyo mabigat na yung 25 laps...thats 75kms in 12hrs compared to 75kms (same distance) in 24hrs of last endurance race in munti...ok, i will spill it out...baka walang sumaling magagandang chicks..and thats arnels worst fear hahaha! LOL!
yeah! maybe later on we can have our own la ruta...pero wag muna heheh! ;D

sorry for late reply guys medyo busy lang...will inform the groupo regarding the number of laps and will take it into consideration.....we're not out to "destroy" riders/competitors....hehehe
hey?! it's almost christmas!?
btw...THANKS TO SEACID for posting the picture...was wondering if i could bother you again for the "online" registration form and the new picture... thanks much brad!
Hi ! Actually the rules has been released. My thinking is that it seems the minimum number of Laps has not been comparably analyzed on the solo and team member category. Please do your math as we will decide.
There is another race also on Dec 15 at Baguio but I consider 12 hr (although my Visa has been approved on this event) due to its proximity.
Rode half the course last Sunday, gps tracks in green. Red tracks are unfinished portion, based loosely on what the guard says would be completed this week.
Note the hairpin turns, hopefully the organizers can berm them for more fun!
Kudos to Ricky, Boy, and the rest of the Sabak boys for organizing the race and creating this track - hopefully it'll be as nice as the fort one was, but longer. I can now get a quick dirt fix when in Alabang.
Next stop, freeride and pump track on the vacant lot across?

EcoRescue/Firefly Brigade The fireflies have fled the city because they couldn't stand its dirty air. All of us cyclists, pedestrians, commuters, even those who ride cars who live, work and raise families in the city may suffer the same fate. We also risk disappearing like the fireflies." Why resign ourselves to this fate? We have a choice. We can fight for clean air and bring the fireflies back.
Hello again...YES it is CONFIRMED...the minimum number of laps for solo riders will be 25laps instead of 36 as initially posted....the same 12laps for each team rider still remains
King....the trail/track is open to the public and some guys will be riding it on Saturday...usual meeting place is at Sabak Sports...so you can park there and just ride your bike....cross Commerce Ave. ...and you're already there!
Will keep you guys posted on more updates....let me know if you have any more queries regarding the race....as for the cash prizes...all I can say is that YES....IT IS CONFIRMED...as for the amount....secret muna...
