6 Hours of the Dinosaur

The Dino Race and Ride is on October 5th 2019! Registration is now open!

San Angelo Bicycle Association hosts a six hour mountain bike race and ride at the North Shore of the San Angelo State Park. The event is an endurance mountain bike race and a favorite of mountain bikers from all over. Riders from Lubbock, Abilene, Midland, Odessa and many other surrounding towns travel to San Angelo to compete. We expect 2019 to be just as spectacular.

The course is a nine-mile loop through the trails of the park.  Riders may choose to ride one-lap only or take on the 6 hours as a solo riders or team.  Teams competition is  male team, female, or coed team. The winners will have completed the most laps in six hours. (Ties will be decided by # of laps, then 1st in). There is also a fun team ride where teams are made up of three or more riders and are there just for the fun.  Awards will be given to the Top 3 finishers in each category except fun team.

This year there is a competition within the race.  It is a winner take all for $100 for the team separate from regular awards.   However to compete for cash prize, teams must be made up of riders whose combined age is 70 years old or more on the day of the race.  This competition applies to all three team categories, Male, Female, and Co-ed and will be awarded in each category.

Registration ends at 2:00 pm with race and ride starting at 2:30pm in the afternoon and continues to 8:30 pm in the evening. Yes, the last couple of laps will be in the dark, so bring adequate lighting. The race’s start and finish are at the North Shore of the San Angelo State Park.
