Jade SignWorks is one of our very generous sponsors for the 2014 Back 40. Mark and the gang at Jade are printing some awesome new number plates for each racer at the Back 40. So everyone who races, get’s to keep their plate after. Thanks Mark!
Hey, full details are now on the Back 40 page. Note the changes to the categories for the 1 or 2 lap XC races. We’ll be splitting up those races into two age categories. 13-29 and 30 and over.
Those young punks are getting way too fast. You will all race together, but results and prizing will be based on those age breakdowns. The 80km marathon category is open to anyone over 18 only. But no age breakdowns for that one – may the fastest rider win.
More details will be coming over the next couple months.
We’re already starting the planning process for the 2014 Back40 and we’re very happy that the fine folks at Country Cycle and Ski in Winkler will be helping organize in 2014. Peter Loewen and Jason Wiebe as well as others are stepping up to help to ensure an awesome race. Expect some changes for the race in general. Nothing too crazy, but probably some new stuff. All the info will be updated when ready.
Funding the trails
Some of the funds will being going to help support the local trail organization. Sweet trails don’t just happen, they take a lot of work and maintenance. Bridges, gas, mowers, tools. So if you enjoy the trails around Morden and Tinker, help keep them in great shape by supporting the 2014 Back40.
We’ve decided to not organize the Back 40 for 2013. Not an easy decision. Maybe not the end, but we’re taking the year off.
See you out on the trails.
