Many of you have noticed that we have the whole weekend marked off for our race in May at Erwin Park in McKinney.

Thanks to Recycles McKinney, the McKinney MCDC and McKinney Parks and Recreation Department we have put together an AWESOME weekend of fun events for the whole family that we are really, REALLY excited about.

Here’s the schedule of events followed up with more information about what each event will be.

Saturday May 24th

9am: Lone Star XC cross country race
11-1pm: Grilling and Awards
7pm: Overnight Camp Setup
9pm: Group Night Rides sponsored by Trail LED

Sunday May 25th

9am: Double Elimination Mountain Bike Tournament
11am-2pm: Family Friendly Poker Run

Okay, I know what you’re thinking… “Shawn, there’s stuff on there I don’t understand”. Don’t worry man, Here’s more details and a full explanation of what we’ve got going on.

Lone Star XC Cross Country Race: 9am Saturday

This is our standard cross country mountain bike race that we hold on a monthly basis. Just like Northshore in March and Sansom in April, we will have a great course for you to race on, a mass start with fiery competition and tons of fun.

Race starts at 9am, but be sure to show up early for registration and bib pickup.

Grilling & Awards: 11-1pm Saturday

Once we start getting people finished from the XC race we will be cooking up some food for you on the grill. We plan to have hot dogs, chips and frosty beverages for you to enjoy, but if you want to bring something just for you then feel free.

Overnight Camp Setup: 7pm Saturday

We’ve got a campsite reserved for Saturday night and anyone who wants to join us for a night under the stars is more than welcome to toss a tent out there and enjoy nature with us. You will need to provide all of your own camping gear, food, etc.

Group Night Ride sponsored by Trail LED: 9pm Saturday

Trail LED, one of our awesome sponsors for the Lone Star XC Series will be on site with a wide array of their lights for demo use. Join us for a fun night lap around the Erwin Park trail and try out the Trail LED XXX, DS, and Halo lights.

Double Elimination Mountain Bike Tournament: 9am Sunday

This is the one you’ve been looking at and going “huh” about. I know, because people have been asking for weeks.

The Double Elimination MTB tournament will function just like march madness. Registered racers will be put into a pool and we will draw for random seeding. Racing will be on a 1 mile closed circuit of trail and will pit 1 rider against another in a duel of speed and skill. Winners will move on to the winners bracket, the loser will go to the losers bracket.

This is a double elimination tournament so you are guaranteed at least 2 head to head races. This is the first time an event like this has ever taken place in DFW and I doubt it will be the last. You bring your bike and be ready to talk a little trash as you watch and wait for your next rounds matchup.

This is a separate registration and anyone is welcome to enter and duel it out to be named the fastest racer.

Family Friendly Poker Run: 11-2pm Sunday

We want the whole family to come enjoy the weekend with us and we have put together a family friendly course that even the kiddos will enjoy riding. Stop at each location on the trail and draw a playing card, the best hands drawn throughout the morning will win a prize sponsored by a local business.

Weather looks great through the weekend. Get some more racing in before the summer heat really kicks in. XC series race on Saturday, Dirt Duels eliminators on Sunday. Saturday night camping available if you wanna go that route.
