2015 Oso High Mountain Bike Race, June 7 


 

 

 

The 2015 Oso High Mountain Bike Race will take place in the Village of Angel Fire's mountain bike trail system on June 7 (Sunday).

As in years past, donations and revenue from the sale of hyper-cool Oso High Mountain Bike Race gear will go straight to the ALS Association. The Association, in turn, will use the money that was formerly yours (and which you traded for a tax deduction and -- depending on the amount -- some Oso High swag) to make life easier for someone with ALS.

The Oso High Mountain Bike Race is a USACycling-sanctioned mountain bike race (and part of the New Mexico Off-Road Series) for riders of all ability levels and ages. Whether you're a pro or have never raced before, we have a course and a great time for you! The massively popular race category, "Dude, I've Never Raced a Mountain Bike" is back with a footnote: "Dude, I've Never Raced a Mountain Bike (except maybe last time at Oso High)".

ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis or "Lou Gehrig's Disease") is the most common, always fatal disease in the U.S. Thanks to the generous expense support of our lawyer friends at Modrall Sperling Law Firm, the Rodey Law Firm, German and Associates, Stelzner Law, and the Rosebrough Law Firm, all proceeds from this event go right to supporting patient service and research funding activities of The ALS Association. While participating in this great event, you can help Bite Back at ALS! As they say in Angel Fire, "Come Up for Air", and make a weekend of it -- downhill (enduro) on Saturday, and uphill and downhill (cross country) on Sunday.

Why ALS?

• ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/”Lou Gehrig’s Disease”) is the most common, always fatal disease in the U.S., and that bites.

• There is no cure, no treatment, and 90% of A.L.S. patients die within five years after diagnosis, which also bites.

• In 2013, more money was spent relocating prairie dogs and salmon than on ALS research, which is really shocking (and we like prairie dogs and salmon).

• On July 28, 2010, your Co-Race Director, Doug Schneebeck (Sport Systems MountainTop Cycling), was diagnosed with ALS, and he’s selfishly hoping some really smart coneheads will use our money to figure out the cure.

Directions: Go to Angel Fire (car is best, but Angel Fire also has a small airport, and, if you own a plane, there’s a good chance we’ll pick you up if you make a donation inversely proportionate to our 1960 VW's blue book value.

More information coming soon.

Courses: All Courses start behind the Lowe's Market. Turn right after the store.
