Nordic/Fat Tire Bike race this Saturday!!!
REMEMBER – The races in Aztec this weekend are at the Tiger Sports Complex (not at the Riverside Park course as in the past). From the north, before entering Aztec proper (about a mile after the speed limit goes down to 45mph) there’ll be signs to turn left to Navajo Dam and Tiger Sports Complex – turn left and follow road to the end (not turning left again to go to the dam).
There may be some thorns/goatheads out there so it’d be a good weekend to have some Stan’s NoTubes Latex in your tires/tubes (but truly, all the time is a good time to have it in there).
There are races both Saturday and Sunday – 10am Men B/Open Women, 11am Men A/Men 35+ both days.

The Iron Horse appreciates the support the local community has provided over 41 years. In recognition of that support we are giving locals access to registration a few hours ahead. Last year the IHBC sold out in a matter of days, some race categories within 13 hours! This is a great chance to “get in” early.
The IHBC will be hosting a “Locals Only” registration party Friday November 30th, 2012 5-8pm at Mountain Bike Specialists at 949 Main Ave, Durango. This event will be held only a few short hours before we open registration to the world at midnight, Dec 1.
We will have multiple workstations set up to allow “locals” to stop in and register for the 2013 event to be held May 25-27, 2013. Please bring your credit card because the registration will be done online, and only completed with a credit card. No checks or cash.
Here is the deal: You have to register in person, with a valid ID. You cannot register other people, unless they are under 18(minor). No exceptions. Please do not ask to sign up your spouse, friend, etc… Our liability waiver is part of the registration process and must be electronically signed by the person standing there, who matches the ID.
Beverages, appetizers, and chocolate provided by Bread, Steamworks and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
Regular registration opens at Midnight Dec 1, 2012 if you cannot make this event.
Please check out our new website at ironhorsebicycleclassic.com for event details including the fact we are going to time the McDonald’s Citizen Tour (must start with Train at 8:30am to receive course time) and we have made changes to the Road Race categories based on 2012 feedback. Additionally we have new merchandise offerings, our best yet.
We hope to see you November 30th and thank you for the many years of support.
