Show-Me State Games mountain bike race

Time for another mountain bike race in the Midwest Fat Tire Series.  This time it's race #8 in the series and is at Rock Bridge Memorial State Park in Columbia on Sunday July 26th.

Here's a map of the course (re-posted from official site):

I've never ridden the trails there but I've been reading reviews online and it sounds like it's a well maintained park and should be a fast paced fun ride.  I like that the trails are fairly wide so traffic won't be as big of an issue as it was at the OMBA Caramba race.

I also expect it to draw more riders because of it's location so that will be good.  The more the better.

Here's a picture of me from the last race, taken by a really good photographer (click the picture to see the full set, mine is #66)

The picture was taken right after the first lap.  You can see the dirt on my leg and arm from my wreck.

If you like any of the pictures from the race the photographer is selling prints; his contact information is on his flickr account.  Hopefully he'll be at the Columbia race.
