News Thirty Years of the Repack

October 21st sees the thirtieth anniversary of the first Repack race. To quote Repack Ride

"October 21 of this year will mark the 30th anniversary of the day six friends decided to answer once and for all time who was the fastest dirt descender in the world. The contest took place on the hill they called "Repack," and apparently the question is still open.

I have it on good authority that some of those same principals will show up on the site, possibly at 10:00 a.m., and I think I'll bring the clocks. Just in case. "


More details in the forum.


There is a book called 'The birth of Dirt' written by Frank J. Berto [ISBN 1-892495-10-4] which comprehensively relives the birth of the sport of mountain biking including some first hand accounts of repack.
Highly recommended.
