Believe it or not, this Friday will mark the 40th anniversary of the original Repack race in Marin County. Yes, that Repack race that kicked off the sport of mountain biking as we knew it. You could say that this weekend will be the 40th birthday for mountain biking as a whole, which is a mighty fine achievement for what began as a niche sport for beardo weirdos (Ed. Has anything changed??)
See below the flyer for the event, and an email that Chipps received from Joe Breeze; one of the original Repack racers.
