If you cannot find a transfer, contact us at least one full week before the race and we will allow a partial credit for next year.

If you did not created an account. Go to the registration page and click “Contact Event” under the event name. Click on the Trying to Edit or Transfer Your Entry green box. On the next page, enter the email address that was used to register. An email will be sent to that address with a link to the page where edits and transfers can be made.

You must email us if you are transferring after registration closes (after Wednesday of race week). We would much prefer to handle transfers by midnight Wednesday if at all possible.

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.
