Dirt Derby Returns September 2017!

Hell-X is officially over, so it’s time to rest up and get ready for Dirt Derby! Dirt Derby will be starting up mid-September 2017, exact date TBD. As things get closer we’ll update with more official details. If you want to get hyped during the off season check us out on Facebook for pictures and videos of past seasons.

Hell X

Hey folks. Dirt Derby is now just a fond memory of 2016, but never fear, Hell X is returning June 6, 2017! We’re running 4 weeks this year and using the same format as previous seasons. First race at 6:30 for roughly 40 minutes and second race at 7:30 until dark. $15 for one or $20 for both and we guarantee you’ll leave with tired legs and a smile.

Rainout 11/22/16

Hey Everybody. All the weather people seem quite convinced it’ll be storming during race time, so Dirt Derby is cancelled for tonight (11/22/16).

We’ll still give it one more shot and schedule the season finale for next week, 11/29/16. Finale will still be ladies nights, so all ladies race for free.

Also, don’t forget about our end of the year party at Austin Tri Cyclist on Tuesday, December 6th. We’ll be hanging out with some snacks and good drinks as well as handing out the series awards for the open race.

3 weeks down, 5 to go!

We just wrapped up week three and a results are available for you viewing pleasure. We’ve also got the Austin Tri Cyclist series open standings updated as well.
