Don’t be left in the DARK!

May 15th, 2012

Long time sponsor of the BURN24, Light & Motion is coming back strong in 2012 and there’s no excuse for you to be left in the dark on Dark Mountain.  They’re bringing the goods for you to demo and keep the aliens at bay.  We will have brand new Seca 1400s ($50), Seca 800s ($45), Stella 600 Duals ($40), and Stella 300s ($40) available to rent. A killer deal will be offered for anyone who wants to ride with a helmet and bar-mounted light – $75 for the race bundle, a Seca and Stella!!! All systems come with a battery and can be used as helmet or bar mounted lights. We also have additional batteries available to rent. Our friendly staff will help outfit you with lights, label your  batteries, and give you tips to ride confidently and fast at night!  Reserve your rental by contacting Heidi at hhall@lightandmotion.com.  Let her know soon.  The race is next weekend and it’s a long way from CA to NC.  Turn on the gas when the sun goes down for a chance to win your own Seca 800!  The male and female with the fastest night lap will walk away with just that, a new light.  If that’s not enough, pick up a coupon for 15% off your next light purchase from Light & Motion.  Don’t be left in the DARK!

Bringin’ the Heat to the BURN!

June 6th, 2011

The 2011 B24 saw record lap times, both day and night!  Julia Tellman peeled off the fastest laps among female competitors.  Her fast day lap was timed at 41:15.547 followed by a lap in the dark at 44:44.543.  Julia earned $150 from Boone Bike & Touring and a Seca 700 from Light & Motion.  Not a bad haul for two fast laps!  The dude’s competition was tight!  Bradford Perley scored the fast day lap with a time of 33:16.121.  Defending fast lap winner Tristian Cowie turned a 33:18.606 followed by Bradford’s teammate, Sott Fredrick at 33:25.120.  Those cats were smokin’ it!  Bradford scored $150 from Boone Bike & Touring for his effort.  Alex Ryan turned an impressive lap under the cover of darkness that would typically rival any fast day lap.  He was timed at 35:18.688 and took home a retina scorching Seca 700 from Light & Motion for BURNing up the night.  It’s worth mentioning that Alex comes from the same team as Bradford and Scott Fredrick.  These guys along with their Champion System/Cannondale teammates set a new record in the 3 – 5 man category  turning 40 laps overall.

B24 & Dark Mtn become test bed for major brands!

June 1st, 2011

If you were racing in the 2011 BURN, I’m guessing you didn’t realize you were sharing the trail with a 2012 Specialized test mule with a $10K estimated value.  You probably missed the Carroll Composites full carbon 29er hardtail.  There was even a sub 21 pound carbon 29er from Performance on the singletrack at Dark Mountain.  Well, we missed it too but that’s why we’re race promoters and not journalists.  We’ll leave that to Tyler and the crew at Bikerumor.com.  They’ve definitely got an eye for this stuff.  Afterall, that’s their job!  Click on the links above to get the 411 on the test rigs in use at the B24!  Thanks for bringing us the scoop Bikerumor.
