24 Hours of Moab Will Be Oct 10-11

The annual 24 Hours of Moab bike race will be held Oct 10-11. The race is a big event drawing crowds to the Moab area. It is fun for participants and spectators. People visiting during that time period need to be aware that hotels will be full and campgrounds will be crowded.

There will be vendors and music and food and parties, plus a kids' race.

Here's what race organizers say about the event:

"In fourteen years time this race has become one of the single greatest mountain bike races in the history of the sport. For one short weekend, a mountain bike city grows up out of the desert graze-lands as we host more than 4,000 racers, support crews, and spectators in a stunningly beautiful, completely remote venue and then, in two days, it's gone. Scheduled for October 10th & 11th, 2009, the 24 Hours of Moab is a world-class event that draws teams from all over the world. There is a field limit of 550 teams and solos and the race books up faster every year, so get your team entered early. Don't miss this incredible race!"

See the race website for details.
