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!
NEMBA Racing is accepting new racers for the 2017 Season!
I’m hoping by now many of you have seen our riders/kits around, either at NEMBA events and rides, at local races, or even just riding your local trails. The team is growing every year and we’d love to have you with us.
We launched our Gravity team 2 seasons ago and they are rolling strong. We have a core group of riders representing NEMBA consistently at the East Coast Gravity series events. We are looking to build on that success and grow the Gravity team even more in 2017!
Racing can be many things to many people. The production value of local MTB races is getting better and better every year. There are new summer series races popping up, the gravity series are stacked with events, new and more endurance events many of which are closer to small festivals, and we now have 2 Pro XCT events in New England for 2017! They are family friendly, they have local vendors, beer tents, it’s not all just suffering!
I want NEMBA Racing to be a home for every type of rider. New and developing riders looking to get fit and challenge themselves, strong riders looking for other like minded folks to help push them further, riders looking to ride new trails with lots of other folks and then have a beer afterwards. Join us for 2017, I highly doubt you’ll regret it.
