They’re going to have the second annual “Army Extreme Mountain Bike Race” March 29 at Fort Lewis. All comers invited. It’s a good way to get filthy muddy, cold and exhausted, with the very distinct possibility of flying head first over the handlebars. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

The post says:

Competition will include men’s and women’s divisions in three skill categories: recreational, for the first-time rider; beginner, for the entry-level rider; and sport, for advanced riders. The race is open to the public. The registration fee for civilian competitors is $20 (discounts are available for service members and other military ID card holders). The deadline to register is March 19. Rules and registration information is available online at (go to "Sports," select "Race Calendar" from the drop-down menu, and click on the "Xtreme Mountain Bike Race").
