Practice, Race, Jerseys, T-Shirts and more

PRACTICE SCHEDULE
The practice schedule for this week is updated on the team calendar at http://highlandmtb.wikispaces.com/.  Click on an event to see more info, including directions to the ride, some maps, and even trail video.

RACE UPDATE

Our next race is in Rochester this Sunday, October 5. Online registration closes Tuesday, September 30 at midnight!

Check the calendar for race day details. Matt Johnson and Mark Hooley will be coaching during the race because Erik Peterson and Paul Johnson will be happily rolling through the forests of Northern Minnesota at the Heck of The North. (Admittedly, this ride ends Saturday at dusk, but they will definitely need a recovery day Sunday. They'll certainly be with you in spirit and expect to hear a lot of great race stories next week!)

NUMBER PLATES!!  Be sure to keep your number plate - you will need to reuse it at all of our races.

WATER BOTTLES!
We are missing a number of our gray team NOW water bottles. If you have any, please wash them and bring them to an upcoming ride so we can get the set ready for the next race.

We have a growing lost and found collection. Talk to me:
-black River's Edge Academy t shirt
-black sweatpants

TEAM JERSEYS! - The Team Store is Open Until Oct 1
The new store front is now up and set to close on October 1st at Midnight.  The clothing should be ready by October 29.

I will have a jersey sizing kit soon. Let me know if you'd like to try a sample jersey on for size. In general, these run a bit small. For example, I often wear a size M for a "race fit" - but in PodiumWear I need at least a size L.

TEAM T-SHIRTS
Contact Matt Johnson if you're interested in buying a team t-shirt for $10.
