To All 2017 Puzzler Participants and Volunteers:
As you know, this morning’s weather conditions were such that it would have been unsafe and unwise to hold the race today. The event will now take place tomorrow, January 16 with the same start times. Right now, the weather forecast for tomorrow is perfect for racing.
If you are unable to attend the race tomorrow, you will receive a credit toward entry in the 2018 Puzzler. The details of that credit are still being finalized and we will share them with you in the upcoming days.
For our volunteers - thank you for giving up your time in such trying weather conditions. Please come out to help tomorrow if you can.
The El Paso Puzzler is organized by the not-for-profit Borderland Mountain Bike Association. We use the proceeds of the race to promote mountain biking and open lands in the El Paso area, including the Lost Dog and Roundhouse trailheads. We have already incurred nearly 100% of our expenses for the Puzzler (signage, t-shirts, awards, supplies, insurance, etc.) even though the race has not yet taken place. We thank you for your understanding and we hope to see all of you tomorrow for a sunny El Paso ride.
P.S. Sonya Looney and Tinker Juarez have changed their travel plans and will still be here and racing on Monday!
