Rumble in the Jungle 2015 - done and done well!

Wow, what a day! So many people who helped make the 2015 Rumble in the Jungle a success, we don't know even where to start. First, the fantastic racers and their families - we know we have the best community out there, and today was one of those days that proved it! West Milford First Aid Squad - thanks for patching us back up today! Eastern sports promotions for once again doing a great job with the scoring - thanks Tim and Jim! Alan and Ruby Rose for the great Mexican food. Echo Lake Baptist Church provided neutral water support on a hot and sticky day - thank you so much Viola and her merry band! Mountain Creek Bike Park for donating water park passes to some of our junior races. Shimano Cycling and John Florey of Highland Sports Group for donating a pair of Shimano shoes to the winners of the Cat. 1 Women's classes - thanks for supporting our ladies! And A.C. Daughtry Inc. for providing us with series numbers for 2015 - thanks Dave and Heather!


Next up on the H2H docket - Tymor Park Challenge on May 31 - always a great race put on by the Eastern Sports Promotions folks - check out all the details at BikeReg.com!

And results are here - http://goo.gl/ppLLEN . Yep, we know there are a few final spelling mistakes to fix - we promise we will, just didn't want to make anyone wait any longer!

Also - we do have a few lost and found items - let us know if you left anything behind!

Rumble in the Jungle - the 2015 edition!

It's that time of year - everyone wants to know - what's the course, how long is a lap, is XYZ trail in it, is there a beer stop, when will you pre-ride, what gearing are you using, where are the monkeys, can you put my favorite trail in it, what tires are you using - you know, the usual! We can't help you with with all of those questions (although we are in favor of a beer stop - illegal at NJSP's, unfortunately!) but here's what we have. 

  • Course marking will start on Friday, May 15, and be finished on May 16. We'll try to have arrows up at critical intersections early on. It's a public park, so we can only tape the day or so beforehand. We appreciate your understanding!
  • We will have a course pre-ride on Wednesday, May 13, wheels down at 6 p.m. We will do both the Cat. 1/2 lap, as well as the Cat. 3 lap. Due to the popularity of last year's format, we will again being doing 2 shorter Cat. 3 laps. 
  • The course is about 90% the same as last years course, so if you are familiar with that course, you'll do fine with this one. Here is the Strava file for the Cat. 1/2 laps, and for the Cat. 3 lap. As most of you know, GPS is hard at Jungle - between several of the trails being so close to each other, and the weird GPS juju that often haunts Jungle, it's hard to get a super accurate lap. There is already some surveyors tape up to help you out in a few spots. 
As you pre-ride, please be considerate of the other park users - just because they might not be on bikes doesn't mean they aren't good people! Right? 

As always, info@teamtowncycle.com with any questions. Don't forget - this is the NJ State Championship race for this year - just another reason to sign up today!

Late notice - Ride, Sat. May 9!

A late notice for a road ride - tomorrow, Sat. May 9, 8 a.m. in Harriman. Meet at the Long Meadow visitor center, we'll go for a 3 hour cruise. Perfect weather - come join us!

The week ahead - and a great big "Junior" thank you!

  • A huge, gigantic, ginormous, big, squishy THANK YOU to everyone who came out to race or help out for Juniors in the Jungle this past Saturday!!! You guys are the best! From BJ with his always excellent MC skills, to Angela for taking such great photos, to Heather for the most welcome egg sandwiches and kielbasa (it was worth the trip right there!), to all 3 Toms, the Dave's, Steve, Vicki, Sherri, Norm, Chris, Dave, Ted, Kevin, Mike, Nick, Ethan, Rick, James, and all the other people we are forgetting. Most importantly, thanks to all the racers and their parents who came out and took a lap or more! No one got hurt, we cleaned up and were out of there in record time, and most important - we got some more kids psyched about cycling! So thank you again to everyone who came out, and to everyone who helped spread the word!
  • TTC's BJ will be leading a night ride on Thursday, April 30. Wheels down at 8 p.m. at Jungle Habitat. Plug in your lights - we're looking for Bigfoot! Nothing racy about this ride - just a nice moonlit roll through JH. 
  • Don't forget - this Friday, May 1 - the debut of the 2015 Friday Night Clinton Road rides! It's been a long winter - we are beyond glad to get this particular party started! Meet us at the United Methodist Church at 65 LaRue Road, Newfoundland. Please remember - we are guests of the church. Let's be considerate and park near the road, not by the church buildings. Wheels down at 6 p.m. Ladies rides start on Wednesday, May 6.
  • Local MTB racing this weekend - the 2nd H2H race of the season is at Wawayanda! All info on www.bikereg.com. 
Have a great week everyone!
