About This Activity

Come on out to the first (and maybe annual) Fountainhead Mountain Bike Time Trial Race. This is going to be a VERY grassroots effort to find the TRUE King and Queen of Fountainhead! We';ve seen the Strava times....some of you are putting down some sick times, but we know a few are holding back. So, this is your chance to race the new trails at Fountainhead and show everyone just how fast (or how slow) you truly are. Or just come out and have some raising money for a great trail.

We are using the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) philosophy on this race. There will be no classes (except for Male and Female) and there will only be two winners- a King and a Queen. There are no sissy second and thirds in this race. And the prize for the King and Queen will be a one-of-a-kind dollar store Tiara for you to show off to all of your SLOW friends. Everyone who finishes in under 4 hours will get a cool t-shirt. The race will consist of the entire Fountainhead Trail (yeah, that';s right, the whole enchilada!).

And yes, this is a fundraiser for Fountainhead- which is why you don';t get crap for winning- just the right to call yourself King and Queen. We still have more trail to build so we need the dough. Along with the Time Trial fundraiser, we will also be celebrating the amazing new trails that have been built in Phase One of the Fountainhead Project. So, stick around for the post race activities. We';ll have a ribbon cutting of the new trails, a "Thank You" to all who have supported the project, along with a picnic, moonbounce for the kids, Niner Bike Demos, rides, and a few more surprises!

Rain Date: We don';t have one. But we will try to get one if it rains. No promises and no, you don';t get your money back- consider your race entry fee a donation to the Fountainhead Project. 100% of the cash will go toward the Fountainhead Trails. Feel free to donate more too- we';ll take it! Want to learn more about the project? Check out www.thefountianheadproject.org. However, we have to admit we are a little slow in updating the website so you might also want to check us out on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thefountianheadproject.

The time trial will have two race start time slots; 8:00 am and 9:00 am. When you register please select a start time. We will only have 50 slots per hour. If one time slot fills up we may need to change your selected time slot but we will let you know via email if that happens. You MUST be registered 1/2 hour before your race time or your slot may be given away. You must be ready to race and lined up at your registered race time slot.
