The 4nd annual 6 hours in Frog Hollow is coming this October 1st to Hurricane Utah and is a perfect introduction to mountain bike endurance racing or training race for the 25 hours in Frog Hollow later this fall. Held on the spectacular trails of the Hurricane Cliffs trails network, this course has everything; double track for passing, ripping fast and flowing single track on the descents, and a little techy section to keep you thinking. Because this is a perfect contour trail it also makes an ideal single speed course.
This is a locally produced grass roots event to show case the amazing terrain in Southwestern Utah and build and share the fabulous cycling culture. This event is also designed to raise money for the planning, construction, and maintenance of local trails. Funds will be donated to the Dixie Mountain Bike Trails Association. A portion of each entry goes back to improve cycling opportunities for all.
The competition goes from 9 am to 3 pm as racers challenge themselves to complete as many laps as possible in the 6 hours. They can complete individually or in teams of up to 3 racers. There is even a new category called “ take a kid mountain biking” so that you and your youth can enjoy a day bonding and racing together.
In total there are 15 different categories to choose from to enter to challenge a racers mountain biking skills and have fun. Competition in the solo categories is usually tough, with the course record set at 48:11 min for the 13 mile course and the top racers completing over 5 laps in the 6 hours. Most racers, however, get in between 3 and 4 laps, going for the 50 mile distance mark in the day.
But don’t forget the fun, with many racers dressing in costume the atmosphere is as lively as it is intense. This year’s theme is Animals and there will be an extra special prize for anyone who dresses as a Frog -and everyone is hoping the OTE bootie girls will be back. The race is well supported with Honey Stinger and other goodies throughout the race, music , prizes and give-aways.
