Roots, Rocks n Ridges

Roots Rocks n Ridges

2010

Pat Wallace was our overall winner. Andy August, owner of Park Ave pushed him all day coming in at a close 2nd.

Beth DelGenio overall women.

The race was hard and long, just as we wanted.

Thanks to all that came out and battled the elements for the 2010 Roots Rocks n Ridges.

We need to thank Melissa and Ben for helping with the course maintenance and leaf blowing as well as Sam and Bo for helping with leaf blowing, huge help. Obviously WNYMBA has developed a perfect lay of singletrack so go to wnymba.org and join. Thanks to all of the marshalls, registration and dinner help. How about Dan from the Ellicottville Brewing Co for hooking up the Octoberfest and Blueberry beer? Good, good stuff from Pete at Just Riding Along in Bradford, PA for some great prizes. Support your local bike shop! Thanks again to Mayer Bros for hooking us up with water and cider. Thank you also to Holiday Valley and Holimont for ski passes and gift certificates from A New Beginning Massage and Spa on Monroe St., Ellicottville.

I hoped you liked the “Old School Mtb Race” as we will host Roots, Rocks n Ridges again for 2011.

Trail Updates:

9-19-2010

Thanks to the crew of about 10 that came out today so that we could finish the re-route around the tornado damage.  This new trail will allow us to ride killer singletrack on the way back from Little Rock City.

9-20-2010

A couple of us are going to ride the long course tomorrow, Tuesday at about 9.  Come and join us if you would like.  We should have exact mileage of the long course tomorrow afternoon.

9-21-2010

The long course turns out to be 23.5 tough miles with 2500 feet of climbing. There is about 1.5 miles of climbing on doubletrack and maybe a mile on dirt roads in the current course layout, therefore the majority of the race is on sweet singletrack

9-22-2010

We have started to deberm the low spots and cut back face slappers to keep the trails in top condition.

 

9-24

We have been hiking some of the trails to knock the berms down and open up the water holes.  This will keep the trails a little more dry in case of rain.  The trails are riding really well right now.

The long version…

The Western New York Mountain Biking Association (WNYMBA) and Holiday Valley have a Master Plan to update the trail system at Holiday Valley.  The new plan will put about 7 miles of mountain bike trails on Holiday Valley’s property.  Our goal is to make the trail system at the resort more user friendly for a variety of riders, novice riders right through expert riders.  Bell Helmets is giving away $33,000.  We applied for a grant through Bell Helmets a few months back and out of 100 applicants we are in the final four.  THE ONLY WAY WE WIN IS TO GET THE MOST VOTES.  The first trail in this new plan to complete is a 2 mile long FLOW TRAIL that starts at Spruce Lake and ends at the ski lodge down below.  The new FLOW TRAIL we be mostly downhill.

More information…

The $33,000 giving away by Bell Helmets pays a contractor branch of the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) to come and build the trails for us.  The contractor branch is called IMBA Trail Solutions.  This means the trail will be perfectly built.  Also, Holiday Valley has agreed to put in additional funds to complete the project when the grant money runs out!  More great news… Holiday Valley will keep these trails free to ride!
