FM:Race 2009 Kits in (your chance to order)

2009 Kits are here. They're hot. If you ordered something, stop by Outback to pick up the bag with your name on it.

here is another view. We'll be out in full force at the FM:Race ride tonight, and there likely will be a big in-town ride on Saturday.

Did you miss out? Did you just shum yourself because you realized that you really should have gotten something? This is how this is going to work:

Our min kit order with ChampSys is 10 items, not including accessories. You get money to me for what you want based on the prices on this page. Once we hit 10 items, I'll post a 7 day notice that we're about to order for other people to squeeze in, and then the order goes out. If we don't get in enough $ to place an order, you can apply your $ to a 2010 kit but I get the feeling that we'll have enough to do another order. Turnaround time will be a few weeks once the order goes out.

This pattern will repeat itself until the next big kit order (2010 kits), and we make no guarantees that you ordering before then will get you something before then. Currently there is 1 item on the list for round 2. 9 to go!

2009 FM:Race Kit Order Form

So this is how this is going to work. Making a form on the internets that encompasses all this is hard, so you're going to need to figure out what you want, figure out how you want to pay, and email all that info to

These are things you can pick from. Figure out what size you want, how many of what things you want, and write that down! Reminder: all team members are required to buy a top and a bottom (or a skin suit) and socks. You know who you are.

2009 Race Season starts with the Snake Creek Gap TT

This past Saturday (1/3/09) marked the start of the 2009 FM:Race season. The mountain bike team packed up and headed to Dalton, GA to run the first of three Snake Creek Gap Time Trials on the Pinhoti Trail System. We will be racing this same course on February 7th and March 7th and our best time of the three will count in the final results. NWGA Sorba puts on the race and they offer both a 17 mile and 34 mile option. The Pinhoti trail system is considered by many to one of the most challenging and technical trails in the Southeast.
