For those of you that were wondering if Thursday Night at the Races at Buck Hill would continue on  after Freewheel Bike's purchase of Penn Cycle, the answer is yes.  Thursday Night Mountain Bike Racing return for a 28th season on May 23rd making it the longest running weekly mountain bike race series in the country.  What Pat Sorensen started decades ago with 45 riders the very first night has grown and evolved into something truly special.  "Whether you’re a first-timer or local hero, these weeknight races continue to rank as the best bang for your entertainment Buck by every mountain biker in the world."

The Thursday Night Mountain Bike Races series brings together beginner, intermediate and advanced mountain bikers for some great racing and good times.  This season's races will consist of a Spring and Summer Series of race dates.  The Spring Series kicks off May 23rd for six weeks and the Summer Series on July 18th for seven weeks.  Advance online registration for each full series and individual dates is now available.  Spring and Summer Series registration is only $50 and individual races are $10 each.  Night-of registration will also be available for $15.  This family friendly event is also a great opportunity to get the youngsters into mountain biking with a free kid's race and under 16 race for only a $1.

Night of registration opens at 5:00 pm, closes promptly at 6:00 with racing starting at 6:30.  This year there will be three classes, Beginner (20-minute race), Recreational (40-minute race) and Advanced (60-minute race) with series prizes for the winner of each category.

This is a great opportunity to test yourself in a race setting on a challenging wooded course at Buck Hill.  For Minnesota High School Cycling League racers, here's a chance to get in some early practice for the upcoming season.  Food, drink and "shenanigans" will be available all evening long.  "Cancellations due to weather will be refunded in full for all pre-registered riders. Race times are approximate and may be modified to adjust for daylight."
