Coyote Classic XC MTB race
Coyote Classic is one of the Cross Country races in the Knobby Tire Series produced by Broken Spokes Cycling. This race took place at Avimor, a planned community North of Boise. The race takes place on trails with moderate technical features, including rocks, streams, cows, and cowpies. The beginner course consisted of 9 miles and 1000ft elevation gain. The Sport course as 16 miles and 2200ft elevation gain. The Pro course included both the beginner and the sport laps. Two BVW participated and stood on the podium!
SWICA Crit #1
This is the 1st of 6 Criteriums "Crits" that take place at the Ada County Fairgrounds in Boise. The Boise VeloWomen are in charge of organizing and executing three of the 6 races this summer. The races happen each week, and range from 20-50 minutes depending on the category. These races are the appetizer to the main course that is Twilight Criterium and Idaho State Criterium coming in July. Nothing is quite as exciting as a peleton of cyclists flying by each lap at high speed!
Results from week 1 Cat 4 Women/Juniors:
Sadly, the 3rd and last Wednesday Night MTB Short Track race of the 3-race series has passed. However, it was exciting and more difficult than the two races that came before. The race organizers heard feedback that the MTB race need to be a little more MTBish. There were several more people on mountain bikes, and the race was very competitive.
Cycle for Independence
