DORBA had several inquiries about the 13-14 racing at Jurassic Trails, since the NICA race is scheduled for the same Sunday. So we moved 13-14 Juniors to SATURDAY with 11-12 and 10 & Under.

To keep things safe and even more spectator friendly, the 13-14 Juniors will race THREE laps of the junior course. This means you get to blast down the downhill run into the staging field 3 times during your race. This downhill section and the switchbacks at the bottom are fantastic for spectator locations and photo ops.

Folks. It is time to start getting everyone up to speed on the plans for the DORBA TMBRA race sponsored by Richardson Bike Mart. Garrick has posted some details about the Jr. Race as it relates to the NICA Conflict. I will post some detail from my perspective on the TMBRA forum. But lets talk about the good stuff.

DINO VALLEY TRAILS. The trails are in fantastic shape. This is a challenging race loop with some tough climbs, and some awesome downhills. We think the last downhill is becoming legendary. Some new lines with jumps have even opened up.
Schedule. We will be running all but our Junior racers on Sunday. 14U will be Saturday (again more on that to come). Bikereg is open so go get signed up for your specific variety of awesome.
Things to do.

Camp. We will be camping. Team Big Pig, on behalf of the Big Pig Cancer Foundation will be serving dinner on Saturday evening as well as food on Sunday. The food is free but a donation to the Big Pig Cancer foundation would be absolutely appreciated. Last year they made a batch of gumbo that went fast and for good reason.

Red Bull. They will be back out with the awesome truck. Be sure to encourage the jr racers to ask the driver 7,000 times “how can I get a Red Bull Helmet?”

The state park. Dino Valley does have Dino tracks about 200 yards from the end of our start shoot. Go see them, and get linked in with one of the park ranger presentations. It is awesome. Also enjoy a dip in that beautiful river.

Richardson Bike Mart. RBM will be there with a tent repairing any damage you have done by “sending” it a little to hard. They will also have some stuff on hand for sale. Come see them for many reasons.

Glen Rose. This town is awesome. Some great restaurants and great places to stay can be had. So have them.

I guess what we are saying is this. As much as we consider it an honor to put on a state championship race within this series, and as much as we take what we do seriously, we want to encourage you to be our guest. Come enjoy the weekend with us. Come enjoy all we can offer either due to our surroundings or because of this event. We would love to make this a great time for many reasons. See you out there.

Junior Course Info

Below are links for the Juniors Course description & map, and the Dinosaur Valley map.

Please note that the race course, staging, parking and camping will be accessed from the back side of the park - not through the park entrance. Race address is
4004 County Rd 1007
Glen Rose, TX 76043

We will be working on course marking, etc. on Friday, 4/26 so access from the back side of the park should be available at that time. Prior to that, you will have to use the regular trailhead in the main park and cross the river to access the trails.

I logged out of our web site and can still see the document. Also checked that the document setting is public.

What are you seeing?

Message from a local place to stay in Glen Rose:

I am the Manager at Country Woods Inn in Glen Rose. We have a couple of people registered for your bike rally staying at our property the weekend of April 26-27. We do have a few cabins left and would love for you to let any registrants know if they need somewhere to stay that weekend we are offering a special for participants!

Volunteers needed! Lots of opportunities for riding (sweeps, marshals).

My Strava if the Juniors loop shows 2.32 miles - does not include the start leg up the road before hitting trail.

Fingers crossed that the rain stops and the parking/camping/staging areas dry out!!!

The trails were in really good condition on Monday afternoon.
