Here is the official race weekend schedule for the Showdown at the Arroyo: The Day of the Shred mountain bike event! We have a whole weekend of events and racing for you to attend. Course will be open for pre-ride starting Friday morning. It wouldn’t be a South Texas event unless we had tacos so join us at local favorite, Calaca’s Tacos & Beer in San Benito for our first mixer!
Saturday we kick off the festivities with the course open for pre-riding all day and a Bike Swap Meet starting at 9:00 a.m. We will host the Kid’s Cup race at 1:00 pm for the little ones in the field at Arroyo Park. First TMBRA race? Attend the First Time Racers Clinic at 2:00 pm right after the Kid’s Cup. We will be doing the official trail dedication to the late Henry Roberts at 3:00 pm, with a special unveiling of the new trailhead. Join us for another mixer at Bicycle World Harlingen for drinks and snacks and meet one of our sponsors and longest standing local bike shop in our community. We wrap Saturday with a Pre-Race party at the new Trek Bicycles Harlingen with music and food.
Sunday is RACE DAY. Did you know that our race is worth double the points for the Cycle Progression Fall Cup? It’s like racing TWO races in one destination. Don’t miss out on the fiesta down in South Texas for some good old fashioned backwoods racing!!!
UPDATE: Course will be open for pre-riding Friday from 12-8pm, and Saturday, 8a-8p!
