A bit of a late start this year with the updates; however things are kicking off across New England with a few (muddy!) early season races already in the books and many more as we roll from spring into the summer months. It’s looking like the rain will be settling down a bit, just in time for weekly racing to start up.
Bubba Trophy Series starts up this weekend on May 11th with the Bear Brook Classic, the first of the six-race Bubba series. With a new course this year we can expect different conditions compared to previous seasons, the crew over at State 9 Racing is always known for mixing in a surprise or two.
On the EFTA side: we’re 2 races into the NECS XC, and 1 into the NECS Headbangers – both are 6-races series. With Marathon and the Zank SS MTB Series options, there is racing of every flavor to be had. Go get some.
Stay tuned as we progress through the race season, we’ll have a lot to share and would love to have you along for the journey! If you’re interested in learning more about what NEMBA Racing is about or interested in joining, please reach out to us via our Racer Application.
See you on the trails!
We’ve wrapped up recruitment for 2018 and NEMBA Racing is looking strong!
We can’t wait to see what 2018 brings with the new BUBBA Trophy Series, new things coming from EFTA, the Eastern States Cup…Spring will be here before you know it! Keep piling those base miles on!
2018 is looking like it is going to be a very interesting year mountain bike racing in New England. There are lots of things changing…Root 66 retiring after 15+ years running their series, Kenda Cup getting new sponsors and new energy. Some old series going away and new ones taking their place. New events springing up. Exciting time to be involved!
With all these overhauls going on we figured it was time for NEMBA Racing to get a fresh coat of paint as well. We’ll be working with a new clothing vendor, Verge, and making some slight tweaks to the design we’ve been rocking the last few years. Here is a little taste:
XC Jersey Back
Gravity Jersey Back
Underneath our new look the foundations of the team will remain the same. Just a group of link minded folks less concerned with marquee results and more concerned with connecting the race community to the trail advocacy community and getting out there and having fun on the race course.
If you’d like to join us for 2018, just fill out our Racer Application. We’ll get you added to our mailing list so you’ll be ready for our team kit order coming in Feb. If you have any questions about the team email kevinorlowski[at]gmail[dot]com
Yesterday I competed in my first race in 12 years and it felt great. I raced novice Veterans II and hung on to finish a distant 14th out of 21. I was amazed at the pace and skill in the novice class. Looking forward to Pinnacle and increasing my training. Good people, fun race, and perfect weather.
We’ve wrapped up new rider recruitment and we’re super excited to get the 2017 race season started!
Fat bike racing is in full swing and conditions have been pretty decent for off road riding so far this winter. Before you know it the early season TT races will be upon us and then it’s Kenda Cup, NECS, NEMBAfest…the list goes on. We are spoiled in New England. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the start line come Spring. Ride on!
