Tough Guy Productions is excited to announce a new, family-friendly style of racing to add to the mix of opportunities of spending time in the saddle of your bike.
The sport of mountain biking has proven to bring communities together. From the entry level rider intrigued by the fresh air and satisfaction of being on a bike to the addicted mechanic, cleaning every spec of dirt off of their “baby” while hitting refresh on Pink Bike; all whom share like-minded dreams and aspirations. Enjoyment and Companionship. Yes, the sport has proven that shedding milliseconds off personal best to place on a podium are what differentiate the best in their class, but these individuals did not just wake up one day and land on the pinnacle of their sport. They started with family and friends who supported them in reaching their goals. Combining individual goals for oneself to strive for with the comradery of hitting the trails with your best friends is what make this community stand alone.
With the mindset that everyone had to start somewhere, this week-night series was built with the entire community in mind. To break down the “walls” of intimidation for first-time racers and provide veterans a way to break out their jerseys a few more times throughout the year. Mountain bike racing is as much a social event as it is an individual activity and support throughout the community will instill an even greater growth to the sport we love.
Tough Guy Productions (TGP) is excited to provide the general pubic one more excuse to be on their bikes during the week. TGP is working diligently with the local community members and businesses to bring new aspects to current race structures and provide entertainment for individuals who may not want to participate in the race. It takes all ability levels to gather in a safe, friendly environment in order to grow the mountain bike community as a whole and TGP looks forward to enjoying these week night races with you.
