Rocky Dirt Series

Rocky was…well, a lot of things. If you’d like to read about Rocky Reifenstuhl, we have an excerpt from the Alaska Geological Society that gives a pretty good feel for how amazing he was: Alaska Geological Society – Rocky Tribute.

The Fairbanks Cycle Club is pleased to once again offer the Rocky Dirt Series. We had too much fun during the winter of 2013/2014 to just stop, so that brings us here. This is a mountain bike race series modeled after the Edward Jones Points Series. Points will be awarded according to finishing order; the higher you finish in the race, the more points you receive. You will also receive points for volunteering, with a pile of points given to race directors (like you!). The goal of this point system is to promote involvement regardless of speed or ability.

The success of this series depends on volunteers. We are currently soliciting volunteers to direct each of the races. Race directors must oversee the flagging, de-flagging, and timing of their race. (This year, the Tuesday Night Mountain bike crew plans to mark the courses the night before, so that’s some of the work handled.) The Fairbanks Cycle Club has course marking supplies, course marking “How-To” guides, and timing equipment. Anyone who helps a race director with these duties can receive volunteer points. Specific details about each race including course description, route and distance will be provided closer to each race. So in the spirit of Rocky let’s challenge ourselves and enjoy some camaraderie out on the trails!
