Two More Races in 2017!!!

Hey Dirt Derby people, TWO more races left this season! Tuesday November 21st and Tuesday November 28th.

We’ll be running a modified schedule on Nov 21st. Beginner race and Austin Tri Cyclist Open Race will go off per usual schedule, but the Intermediate MTB & Tom Mahnke Realty Intermediate CX will be combined into one long (45ish min) relay starting at 7:00. Relay teams will consist of two racers alternating laps. One person will do the MTB course and one person will do the CX course. $10 per team ($5/person) & BYOB (Bring your own baton, feel free to be creative). If you don’t have a partner don’t worry, we’ll assign you one at the time of the race.

See you Tuesday!

10/31/17 Race Cancelled

Hey racers, in anticipation of the 50 degree rain at race time in the forecast for tomorrow (10/31) we’re going ahead and cancelling.

Don’t worry about missing out on racing though, we’re tacking on another rain out date and will get our full 8 week season. Dirt Derby will pick back up on Tuesday Nov 7th and race every Tuesday until the season finale on Tuesday November 28th.

Half way there!

And just like that we’re halfway through the season! Big thanks to our race sponsors Tom Mahnke Realty & Austin Tri Cyclist as well as Chumba Cycles, Team YEAH!, Pickle Juice Sport and all our volunteers.

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
