2014 Mudslinger (4/4/14)

The Mudslinger Bike Race celebrates its 26th year when the race starts this weekend.

The races will be happening our our Tum Tum Tree Farm, starting at the Blodgett School.

There are three different races, the Mudslinger Hill Climb, Super D, and Cross Country. One Hill Climb and multiple courses depending on your ability for the post Hill Climb Super D. Compete in one day or both in the Mudslinger Dirt Stage race and compete for overall honors for the weekend in a cumulative time Stage race combining Stage 1 (Hillclimb) and Stage 2 (Super D) and Stage 3 (26th Mudslinger XC). Phew, that is a mouthful!

At any rate, Mike Ripley does an awesome job organizing this race and if you want to learn more about it, check out their website

There is a great video on the Mudslinger website about the race. Starker Forests is pleased to support Mike and the Mudslinger race.
