    Re: 2010 Mas O Menos Mountainbike Fest


    It is with a heavy heart that Desert Sports must announce the cancellation of the 2010 Starlight Theater Mas O Menos 100k Mountain Bike Fest.

    It’s been a great run, since back in the day (way back in ‘04) when we first convinced the fine folks at the CASI site that this whole mountain bike thing was a possibility. We had visions then of how great it could be ... but we never truly imagined how fabulous it would turn out! Dancing! Riding in sixty foot rattlesnakes! Racing! Eating! Smashing records and becoming part of the USAC National Ultra Marathon Calendar. And we all had so much fun the whole time. It was an honor and a privilege to fashion such a terrific festival for y’all to come out and enjoy.

    But like all good things, this one has come to an end. After over 20 years as a mountain bike race course, we here at Desert Sports have finally been unable to secure satisfactory agreements with all of the landowners along this route. We can no longer present the event that you have come to know, to love, and to anticipate.

    We want to thank everyone for making what turned out to be the “last” MasOMenos such a terrific event, and we need to thank all the participants and locals alike who have supported this event in all its incarnations in the past. With that in mind, we encourage all our terrific and generous sponsors to pop their sponsorship dollars that they had earmarked for Mas O Menos into the bank to collect interest ... because we’ll be back, soon, with something new and exciting, and we’ll be looking for your support for our next mountain bike adventure in West Texas.

    Until then, true wheels and tailwinds, and we’ll see you on the trails!
    Suckage..... Wonder what douche didn't want their dirt trampled upon? Who ever it was, may their pubic hair be infested by the fleas of a thousand camels! Sad as it may be to admit, this was one of the few things I have been looking forward to, after a very stressful time in my life.

    aLaN,

    This is a sad day.

    I'm in if we can get a group together.

    The state park ride ride was fine. We have never had a road ride there, and personally, I wouldn't mind riding to Lajitas for lunch. The sweat lodge will be just as warm, though I may start charging 9,000 dollas per mojo. The tequila will be just as sweet. Eve will still sport her doughnut PJ,s and Gary will still swoon over Mel. I'll follow toobin anywhere in the desert, and enjoy every moment. I don't enjoy that three caves road anyway!

    mrs. hk, why the mojoside?

    I'm still in. I didn't notice the race much anyway except for the food. The crowds at the restaurants and showers will be less. Camping at Big Bend Ranch State Park will probably have less wind and dust. Tour guide Tobin will have more free time to ride.


    .
    Raise your skill level to the level of the trail, don’t bring the level of the trail down to your riding level.

    Don't mind me, I'm just along for the ride.

    It’s a bummer for the racers that there won’t be an event in 2010.

    It’s an enormous bummer for the Study Butte/Terlingua residents and economy. Hundreds of thousands of tourism dollars were dumped into the economy during this event. There are 4-5 big events that happen out there annually (CASI Chili Cook-off being the largest) and when one of them goes away, it is felt by all of the local businesses.

    I’m spending President’s Day 2010 weekend out there.

    i didn't realize that the mtb'rs really spent a significant amt of money out there (compared to the chili cookoff and the other things that go on out there).

    my "racing" out there usu sux b/c i'm too busy having fun.

    Hopefully Desert Sports will find a replacement venue for 2011.

    Oh, and I can't wait to see how my new carbon fiber hard tail rides out there.

    Jimmy, for RV's and trailers the choices are BJ's RV Resort, Study Butte Inn & RV, even Lajitas Resort is now accepting RV's that are not "Class A".

    I'm not sure if we'll pull the casita out or not.

    Often....I find myself asking myself what I have learned from the journey....We are lucky to be here, on this beautiful planet. We are lucky to have the short amount of time that we are granted. And we are lucky that our beautiful planet hasn't killed us (yet).

    Thumbs up Big Bend Ranch near Presidio

    hj and I took a trip to the newest part of the State Park a few years ago. They had just opened that section of the park. I believe we were the 11th visitors to check in. They were still installing fire rings and picnic tables.

    This is the property closest to Presidio. It is much more beautiful that that of the State Park close to Terlingua. Even more beautiful than the National Park. You truly feel like you are out in the middle of nowhere. Very Primative Camping. They have tons of unimproved jeep road to ride. The Crawford Ranch ranger station at the end of Sauceda to Fresno Canyon Road has a bunkhouse.

    There are waterfalls to hike to( really long hike), the Solitario crater, the Cinco Tinajas trail (really cool) natural water pools and the Ojitos Adentros trail with a waterfall.

    If you do not mind primative, it would be great!

    TPWD has a newsletter. The map on this newsletter gives you an idea of the vastness of the park.

    It must suck to be you.
