Participant Email Info
In case you missed the emails, these are the key items to know before you race.
BRING YOUR I.D. FOR BEER TENT
(We card everyone. Just sayin'.)
Note: There is absolutely no alcoholic beverages allowed in the beer tent area, other than your delicious Right Brain craft beer bought in the beer tent area. Please also know you will not be allowed to bring your purchased Right Brain beer outside the beer tent area, even to hit the Porta Potty. Sorry, but our liquor license depends on you!
MSB: IT'S ALL ABOUT YOU
Race day is an exciting time and we'll have all the great things you've come to love about an MSB race with a whole lot more. This year we'll have another great variety of Right Brain beers to help celebrate the day. Match a cold one with our authentically delicious Mexican lunch options and you're good to go.
(We'll also have other lunch favorites and plenty of root beer floats for the kids!)
Other amenities include:
Pre-race massages and adjustments
Coffee and light breakfast items for pre-race fuel
Emergency bike repair services
Shopping at the MSB Gear Store
Post race bike washing
Great live music and the awards ceremony in the beer tent will round out the day. It's going to be an incredible day, have fun!
DRIVE A JEEP? YOU QUALIFY FOR VIP PARKING
In honor of our title sponsor, Jeep and Bill Marsh Automotive Group, we will have a special area designated for Jeep products only. Our parking staff will direct you accordingly.
When possible, carpool. Parking is onsite, which is great, but it will be tight.
Drive a 4x4? You'll be parked on the hill. Cars will be directed to the flat lots in front of the lodge and south of the lodge near the maintenance building. THERE WILL BE SIGNS DIRECTING YOU AS WELL AS VOLUNTEERS.
WIN YOUR AGE GROUP, GET A PRIZE
We heard you loud and clear last year! If you are 1st, 2nd, or 3rd in your category's age group, you get a little love. Just pick up your trophy mug at the awards table following the race. Fill your 16 oz. mug with Right Brain craft brews for $5 after!
Clydesdale category is for riders weighing at least 200 lbs. after the race. In general, we trust you guys but if we get a protest, the scale will come out.
For those of you who feel age is not a factor and want to test yourself against the best, go with the Elite/Pro category. Otherwise, slug it out in the age delineated groups.
PRE-RIDES ON PRIVATE LAND STRICTLY FORBIDDEN
Riders caught or reported trespassing on private land up until 7 am Saturday, May 4 2013 and ending 5 pm Saturday, May 4 2013 will be blacklisted from Mud, Sweat, and Beers. The proper authorities will be notified also. If you have questions about what private land is, contact us here and check out our course map. Sorry but without these landowners, our race can't happen.
WAVES AND START TIMES ARE POSTED
Check your start time and schedule for the day. Please note, if your child is a participating rider, the Ginger Ale and Root Beer races are scheduled so parents riding in the Stout or Pale Ale can ride their race and still watch their child race. Preliminary start times are posted here.
Any rider starting in a wave earlier than their scheduled wave will be disqualified from the competition. Please check your wave start times before lining up. We hate to have a great wide wiped off the records.
Registration is wide open for the Ginger Ale and Root Beer. Make sure your kids are registered either online, or on May 3rd or 4th at Mt. Holiday.
All protests regarding posted times, finish order, or racer conduct must be submitted in writing to the Race Jury by 3:30 PM on race day. The Race Jury will be comprised of the Chiefs of Course, Timing, and Registration. The decisions of the Jury are final.
If you should decide to drop out of the race, go to the nearest aid station and inform a race official of your decision. A support vehicle will be called to transport you from one of the vehicle pick up spots (eg. Bunker Hill trail head, Rock aid station, Terhune Aid Station).
