A big thanks to our prize sponsors: Pro Gold, Morniga Source, KMC Chains and Vee Rubber for providing great pries for our racers. Final standings
These events are our first steps into providing more great events for the cycling community.
We also raised awareness for the Yellow River Trails system's future. The plan for the trails is to fix them with a 4-foot wide machine-built trails system that is accessible for all users (whoever that may be).
Most hikers are seeking a more Appalachian Trail trail to hike on while cyclist prefer the same. We want to keep the trails as they are.

All 3 events take place at Yellow River Park in Stone Mountain, GA - a suburb of Atlanta.Perfect weather and even more perfect course for the first two rounds of Winter Thaw Series. Racers were treated to some classic Southern singletrack.
Brent has been hard at work to give underprivileged kids the mtb experience. As this sport can be costly there are often talented cyclist that never get to shine. We have worked a deal with local promoters for assistance on entry fees and are collecting bikes and parts to help build race bikes for the kids.
