Dave Trimble’s Hatcher Pass Road / Offroad Race was last weekend. What sounded like a fun race turned into a grueling, muddy mess as rain settled in. There are a ton of photos up on Dave’s Flickr. Head over to check them out.
And the award for the best race poster goes to…
Trimble Racing is proud to announce the Hatcher Pass Road Race to be held on August 4th, 2012. This unsanctioned 70 mile dirt road race will be contested through the beautiful wilderness of Alaska. The race will begin at the Trimble family cabin near the Independence Mine in the Talkeetna Mountains. After a neutral descent the race will start with a grueling two mile dirt climb up and over the famous Hatcher Pass. At the top of the pass riders will cross from the Palmer side to the Willow side plummeting down the Willow Fishhook Road, a long and technical gravel descent with endless switchback corners. After the nearly thirty mile descent the road levels for a few recovery miles. A checkpoint at the intersection of the Parks Highway marks the halfway point where the riders will turn around and start the long journey back to the Trimble cabin.
Trimble sent over the PR for the 2012 Red Hook Crit. Check out all the info below.
