Four miles for the mountain kings on ribbons of dirt,

Nine for the gravel lords on pebble and stone,

Nine more for the gravel lords, beginning to hurt,

Six for the mountain men on trails and alone

In the Land of the Springs where the bike race lies.

One Biker to rule them all, one Biker to grind by them

One Biker to lead them all and on the dirt to bind them.

In the Land of Springs where the bike race lies.
