After months of grueling work, the trail for this weekend’s high school mountain bike race in Uintah County is complete! According to one of the event organizers Trina Hedrick, both weekends of racing is expected to bring about 2500 individual racers and their families to Vernal which will provide a boost to the tourism economy with hotels filled and restaurants and stores frequented. In order to make the event a success, however, volunteers are needed to help with the course before and during the race. “By helping with setup,” shares Hedrick, “folks will be indirectly helping to support our local economy. It’s also a chance to support the kids on the team. They really worked their butts off to get that thing built before the races.” In fact, Hedrick says that two other towns were supposed to host races this fall but couldn’t get their act together in time. The races will be held September 17th and September 24th. To learn more how you can help, check out the Uintah High School Mountain Bike Team page on Facebook.
