THANK YOU !

Wow, what a day !  The Moose Jaw Pavers are so grateful for everyone who came out and enjoyed the 2016 Buffalo Pounder.  This event is only possible because of the support we have received from the volunteers, race organizers and local business supporters.

Big congratulations to Rob Walcer as the race organizer and Matt Froehlich for recruiting the awesome trail maintenance crews.  Riders from Moose Jaw, Regina and Saskatoon put in some extra hours prepping the course.

We also need to thank the businesses who contributed to the outstanding atmosphere.  Western Cycle and Trek Bicycles provided wicked prizes and gave us some bikes to try-out before and after the race.  Our photographer Colby Katzberg captured the memories that will last a lifetime.  The ATTIC Spin Studio kept us going with their relentless cheering and humour. Crave Kitchen + Wine Bar treated us like rockstars and served the best meal that any athlete could ever wish for.  Lastly, we must acknowledge the Buffalo Pound Provincial Park Staff because they put in many hard hours to ensure we have a place to gather and share our love of biking.

If you enjoyed the race, please spread the word.  This year we had 90 races and we want over 100 in 2017.

2016 Provincial Thankyou

Buffalo Pounder Menu and Photographer

We thought things couldn’t get any better, but we were wrong. Today we are able to announce that Colby Katsberg will be our official photographer at the 2016 Buffalo Pounder. Crave Kitchen + Wine Bar has also finalized our fantastic post race meal. Looks like we will be eating like royalty. See you all Sunday.

Buffalo Pounder – Update (August 19)

Early registration closed last night and 80 people have registered for the race on Sunday.  If you missed out on registration don’t worry you can register at the race on Sunday morning.  The walk up registration cost is $70 (please bring exact cash).  A few additional meals are available for Sunday but priority will be given to walk up registration.  If you need an extra meal the cost is $25 and please email me (email address) and we can make arrangements.  We cannot be actively selling food in the park on race day.  If you need to purchase a single day race license you will be able to do this at the sign-on.  The schedule for race day is as follows:

8:00 – 9:00 AM: Sign-on
9:45 AM: Race Staging
10:00 AM: Race Starts
12:00 (or sooner): Post-race meal, awards and prizes.

As of tonight (Friday night) the course is still wet from the recent rain.  Sheltered trails on the course such as Roots and 1/4 Mile are pretty greasy.  The weather forecast for Saturday is sunny so by early afternoon the course will be marked.  Marking will be happening Saturday morning so if you are out riding please watch for us.  Once marking is complete we will post on the Pavers facebook page and provide an indication of course conditions.

Sunday morning the Park entry gate will be staffed and everyone without a seasonal pass will need to obtain a day pass ($8).  Please allow enough time for park entry.  Parking will be at the lower chalet day use area.  The course goes across the dry (?) creek crossing at the north end so 2-3 spots will be blocked off for the race.

Sunday is going to be an awesome day of racing at the Pound!

See you there!

Rob, Matt, and Jocelyn

Need a Little Motivation?

Trek, Western Cycle and The ATTIC Spin Studio are the official motivators of the 2016 Buffalo Pounder.  All racers will receive a $20 coupon from our friends at Western Cycle at registration.  If that isn’t enough to motivate you, The ATTIC Spin Studio announcers will be cheering your name as you cross the finish line.  Lastly, that gourmet meal from Crave will give you the energy you need to check out the fleet of TREK demo bikes and gather swag from the prize draw.  Sounds like a pretty nice little Sunday.

Tuesday Night Ride

6:15 pm Start Time
Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

I missed last week due to heavy dinosaur activity.

This weeks ride features the glorious banks of the mighty Moose Jaw River.
Recent weather has the trails in fine form for flow and climbing.
Overgrowth is getting beat back by human activity.
Puddles are in the same places they have been all year.
Mosquitos are present and voracious.

Bring something to drink.
Wear a helmet.
Defend yourself from mosquitos.

See you on the trails,
Bob
