Bring it: Lyons Outdoor Games this weekend

Saturday Saturday Saturday! The new Lyons Bike Park will host a Short Track, Pump Track Worlds then a Dirt Jump Comp.

Come on out to ride, compete and/or watch.

Short Track
When: 2 p.m.

What: Short track madness with a pro purse.

Pump Track Worlds
When: Afternoon around 3, hopefully after the short track ’cause I want the XC folks to throw down.

What: 2-lap time trial with a rolling start. Skill, gender and/or age classes. I’m thinking we should take the top qualifiers then race them in pursuit brackets for the $$$. Two riders start on opposite ends; if you get caught you’re out. That should be fun to behold (and brutal to do).

Dirt Jump Comp
When: 4:30 p.m.

What: Regional DJers will throw down on two very big, very sweet jumps. 20 or MTB. Pro purse. This will be a spectacle.

And: All-day riding sesh. Come on out!

    As I understand, we will be using the Figure-Infinity configuration for pump track qualifiers. That’s approximately how many fast lines there are.

    Smack talk: I’m going to be there, so everyone had better bring it! I predict that the finals will be characterized by much suffering.

    Lee, i have to work while my boss helps out with the short track, and i definitely, definitely want in on the pump track, could we move the time back like 30 minutes?

    Sam: I’ll try to move it back a bit. Gotta get the short-trackers in there too!

    I’ll say this: Some of you jokers might beat me, but it won’t be because I let you. I am bringing the piggy bank, and I’m spending it all!
