Chico Racing is extremely excited to host the 13th annual 24 Hours of Summer Solstice this weekend at Albion Hills Conservation Area.

Over 2,000 riders will race from noon Saturday to noon Sunday on a fun 17 KM mountain bike course. The teams range in size from individuals riding solo, to groups of 10, all with the same goal - to complete as many laps as possible over 24 hours. This first weekend of summer brings participants together for a race, and also for a 2-day festival packed with competition, entertainment, and camping.

“The Solstice is shaping up to be the best yet. There is so much going on over the 2-days, more than ever before. There are air castles, kid races, a brand new swimming area splash-pad, 24-hour catering, a beer garden, and on top of this the course is spectacular. Riders should be ready to have a blast this weekend” says Adam Ruppel of Chico Racing

Participants of this years’ event should be very excited for the staggering amount of trail work that has been completed, just in time for the Summer Solstice. Several sections of doubletrack and singletrack have been reworked to ride drier, and increase the overall flow.

If you missed out on getting into the 24 Hours of Summer Solstice, teams can be a part of the 24 Hours at Albion: Hot August Nights – Chico Racing’s end of summer bash August 28/29, 2010.
