Some of you may remember that Salsa got onboard with MORC last year as the title sponsor of the 24-Hour's of Afton race they put on.
We signed on in that role with a two-year commitment, while acknowledging that we'd like it to be something that continues well into the future. Our goal is to make it more than a 24-hour race...more of a festival based around a 24-hour race.
The good folks at MORC are also excited about that possibility. To that end, they decided we could change the name of the event, thereby creating the...
That last part is important. Why? Because this event is a grand fundraiser of sorts, which works toward the improvement and growth of mountain bike trails across Minnesota.
So what's in store this year?
Well, there will be another tough 24-hour race course. Our 2nd Annual Homemade Salsa Competition and Tasting. And we've got a whole slew of fun events for folks to take part in, have a laugh, and get laughed at a bit perhaps.
All in the name of fun. All in the support of MORC and Minnesota mountain biking.
We'll post on the blog as more events are added to the schedule of events, but you can also go straight to the source at http://www.salsa24fest.com
We hope to see some of you out there, whether you are racing or not. Stop by, have some fun, camp out for the night, and enjoy the bicycling life.

I love being outside. I prefer to ride on dirt. Or snow. If I was born a hundred years earlier I might have been a polar explorer. There's a great natural world out there to see, smell, taste, listen to, and experience. Life slows down out there and the distractions we've created will disappear if you let them. Give me a backpack and let me go.
