Re: Return on the Jedi

Pistis Mountain Bike Racing Team

I wanted to thank our sponsors for the Jedi. Clif Bar, Bikekraft, Chris King and Spin Cycles. We had the best group of volinteers ever. The team riders from Pistis Ministries did a great job of recruting family and friends. I must admit, Our food (Blazing Saddles) was 10 times better than I expected. But these were guys that are use to cooking on mission trips. They Rocked. We look forward to next year. I also want to thank all the riders that made the trip. For those who missed it you really missed out.

Thank God for a Great weekend.Cliff McCann Pistis MinistriesPistis.us541-659-4104

I want to add to David and Ron’s comments that the Jedi was well worth the drive and the PISTAS did an awesome job. With the small turn out just about everyone medaled in the Short Track and the Super D was Super fun – PS: A downhill bike was not necessarily an advantage!!!

The XC course was great, well marked, and well supported with aid stations. Just a ton of fun & a real MTB race.

Thanks to all the volunteers, race organizers and especially Pistis Cycling for putting on a "real" mountain bike race. The setting for the race and the tons of single-track were just amazing. I loved the three ice cold creek crossings, they added an extra cool factor to the race. The high speed downhill roads and trails were long and fast. The climbs reminded me of the T.O.E. and I was almost D.O.A. at the finish but I wouldn't have it any other way.

I am only sorry we did not do the short track and super D race on Saturday. Even though we made the trip from Portland it was well worth it for the atmosphere and food that was included with the race fee. Thumbs up to all the organizers and participants at this race. We will be back next year for sure. If you mtn bike race put this race on your to do list for next year.

Later,

David Luoma
