The race is on!!
We received another 1/2" of rain last night. The trails closed this morning, but will dry quickly, and should be in great shape for the race. We will reassess at 5p for a possible evening pre-ride.
The trails are in great shape. The soil here dries very quickly, and the weather on race day is supposed to be fantastic. So expect the trails to be in fantastic shape for the race. Our caution in closing them today is more to protect some brand new trail we just put in for the race and has not had time to harden up yet. Ironically this trail was delayed in getting installed by our very wet and cold spring.
So check in later today if you want to pre-ride. And plan to get out here tomorrow. it is going to be a great day of racing

We are getting down to the nitty gritty and we still need more volunteers.
Considering how many people we have on the forums we should be able to easily get the people we need. I'm tasking each of you to at least ask your fellow riders, buddies, etc to lend a hand. We hear so many good things about the work CORP has done on the area trails and those 'things' don't just happen. It takes a lot of $$ to maintain trail, add trail, improve trail, open up new trails, build features, etc. The Battle of Cam Rock is our largest fund raiser to date. We are just asking for a fraction of your time to make this event a stand out in the largest mtb race series in the US!

Mark your calendars! CORP's annual summer bash--CORPFEST-- will be held on August 24-25 at Camrock I n Cambridge. The event has been completely re-designed this year. Bring your family for an afternoon of kids events, group rides and no-drop trail tours. Stay into the evening and cheer on the racers in the three-hour Pitchblack Singletrack race. (CORP has decided to drop the WEMS format for the Pitchblack race this year. Pitchblack will be a 3-hour race and be part of CORPFEST). And, if that wasn't enough fun for you, there will be camping, bonfires, and a midnight scavenger hunt, along with other nocturnal bike shenanigans and tomfoolery. More details to follow! http://corpfest.blogspot.com/

So you have heard about CORPFEST, now help plan it! CORP is holding an informational planning meeting at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, May 6, 2013 at Camrock Cafe and Sport following the weekly group ride. The purpose of the meeting is to establish a committee for managing the event. We need members at large that are interested in providing their input and taking responsibility for ensuring the event is a success. If this doesn't sound interesting, think about it this way: We are going to be sitting around, drinking beer, planning ways to sit around and drink beer while riding bikes.

Good news: CORPFEST cometh! CORP wants to thank its members for all the hard work they have (and will) put in this year. We are planning a biking bonanza blowout later this summer that will include a race, beer, music, camping, and various forms of tomfoolery.
However, the Board of Directors has been so busy planning work days, races, trail improvements, and schmoozing with pols to get even more trails, that we are tapped out on manpower.
We need two or three good (crazy) men( or ladies) who are willing to help plan, organize, and execute CORPFEST. We already have 3 other committee members, so you won't be alone, but we need organized and dependable volunteers to help pull this off. Who wants to man up and help us out? Of course, being on the committee will give you access to all the secret surprises we have in store as well as first pick of the beer.

A huge THANK YOU to everyone who made it out and contributed in any way this weekend. To those who made it for the whole weekend you are rock stars. Hope the sore muscles heal soon
We got a truly amazing amount of quality work done this weekend. The trails will ride a lot better this year, and dry faster after rains, because of the work you did. The weather really cooperated and we got a ton of work done. The winter thaw loosened and moist soil was really east to work with.
Another huge thank you to our sponsors for the weekend:
Dane County Parks for the facilities to build our trails in and being great partners.
CamRock Cafe & Sport for breakfast and lunch, along with sponsoring Saturdays after party. The fires and music were great. I hear the bonfire went 'til late in the night.
Ale Asylum for the free beer!
Rockdale Bar & Grill for the breakfast snacks, beverages and food for the party on the deck Sunday. Soaking up some sun on the deck while refueling and resting sore muscles was a great way to wrap up the weekend.
Oh yeah, the trails (except for Outback and Creekside) are OPEN!

Preview of the Battle of CamRock 2013 course map. Longer Lap, Faster Speeds. More Passing Zones. Course broke up to make it more competitive. Less laps! Course overall time should be down closer to the 100 minute goal for Elite Men.
Let me know what you think! Tom Harron Racer Director

Going to do things a bit different this year. One big weekend at each trail system. Four total work weekends.
All hands on deck at each trail system led by the Trail Stewards. System steward in the Primary leader delegating tasks to the other stewards who will then lead individual crews. Each weekend will include a social event or potential camp out/bonfire on the included Saturday night. Group rides may occur as well if we have another epic dry spring like last year. We are also setting up a raffle of sorts. Each hour of work will earn you a ticket towards a drawing on that weekend and at a final year end event. While the prizes are still being coordinated we hope the grand offering will be a new steed...
Of course more details as the weekend approach but here are the key weekends to set aside:
NEW DATE April 20-21
NEW DATE TBA--Likely Mid May
Middleton Bike Park
NEW DATE TBA--Likely Early June
Blue Mounds State Park
