Check out Laird's story here If you have ever met Laird, you know he has a huge smile, a vivid imagination and works hard to make his visions come true.
I did my first 24 hour in 1994 and it went across the Moon Rocks. I was a newbie mountain biker and it was pretty intense. The next year the race got moved out to Timberline and it was the infamous mud year. Read about that race in the New York Times.

While we no longer have 24 hour racing here, Blackwater Bicycle Association continues the long standing tradition of racing by putting on the Blackwater Classic and the Revenge of the Rattlesnake. And we hope that the Canaan MTB Festival upholds the spirit of bikes, friends and trails.
