VIRGIN – Frog Hollow Mountain Bike race, which is a single-track trail race one mile south of Virgin, is a grueling race that started at 9 a.m. today and concludes at 3 p.m. Riders compete with the clock to see how many laps they can complete on Frog Hollow’s single track loop in six hours.
The goal of all these mountain bike races is to complete as many laps as possible within a given time frame.
There are five racing categories: Solo, solo single speed, duo, trio, and masters.
Today’s Frog Hollow race is a 6-hour hybrid of its sister race of 25-hours consecutively to be held at Frog Hollow in November.
Today’s race, though one quarter the time involved for its November sister race, is grueling.
It is reported to be 80 degrees out at the time this story is published and the race is only part done. Racers are completing their second laps and are two hours into their race.
The Frog Hollow race is sponsored by Gro-Promotions, which also sponsors the True Grit Race annually in March, a 150-mile options point-to-point.
