It's a big day and a big weekend for mountain bikers and XTERRA racers in and around Knoxville, Tennessee.
Foremost, today is the last day to cast a vote to help the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club crew secure a $100,000 trail building grant from Bell. Go here: http://www.bellhelmets.com/bellbuilt.html and select the urban wilderness gravity trail project scheduled for downtown Knoxville.
Then, this weekend the XTERRA Trail Run and Triathlon series is in full swing with runs on Saturday and the triathlon on Sunday. The good folks and organizers Ryan and Ani from Dirty Bird Events even got some TV time on their local news to promote the races (watch the segment here).
