Wilkesbermo finds itself cursed by Punxsutawney Phil! That can be the only excuse for such lousy weather and what seem to be permanent trail closures. We offer the picture above as proof that warmer, greener and sunnier days are ahead. So who else can’t wait for April 5th?
While we’re all stuck inside, at least here in NC, we want to remind those of you lucky enough to score a race entry of a few things.
There is a waiting list for this year’s race. While your entry is yours to do with what you would like, we do request that if you need to bail on the race, let us refund your spot. We will be entertaining refunds as long as there is a waiting list. Email the race directors with your request.
Check back often for race anouncements and be sure to click through our sponsors’ websites to the left.
As always, support your local bike shop. It’s winter and they’re slow. What better time for a tune up.
If you didn’t score an entry to the race and you’re not on the waiting list but want to be, sign yourself up over at Bikereg.

Registration for the 2014 6 Hours of Warrior Creek will open on Saturday morning, November 2nd. We’ll flip the switch at 9AM this year to give you sleepy heads, and those with a hangover, an extra hour of sleep. Either way, it beats sitting up til midnight to register. We’re never ones to count our chickens around here but last year this race sold out in 36 minutes and came real close to crashing the Bikereg servers (we’re just sayin’…). Just as last year, we’re going to open Warrior Creek Campground to you racers only. Reserve your spot as you register online. Space is limited so set your alarms now and thanks in advance for racing with us and supporting the BMCC trail fund!
The 2013 6 Hours of Warrior Creek is being presented by new race partner, The North Face. We’re appreciative of their support and we’re also sure you will be too. They’ll be on hand on race day and we’ll have some sweet gear for the podium and raffle after the race. They’ve even sent us some of their cycling gear to test out for ourselves and the 6WC approves. Come to think of it, my favorite trail shoes came from The North Face. The next time you find yourself looking for great jacket to stay warm or any other excellent outdoor technical gear, be sure to support TNF. They support the 6WC!
Don’t forget, we’re days away from opening day of online registration. Set your alarms now for Saturday morning, November 3rd as registration opens at 8am. No need to stay up all night waiting. Get up, register and go back to bed. You’ll notice some new things when you get logged into Bikereg to sign up. By popular demand, we’re offering camping in the Warrior Creek Campground for both Friday night before the race and Saturday after the race. Space is limited so be sure to snag a spot while they last. The North Face will be a new race partner for 2013. They’re hooking us up with a super sweet deal on their technical apparel. You’ll notice for this year that the traditional race tee is changing over to a tech tee. We’re excited to have The North Face on board! We’ve got more great stuff in store for the 2013 6WC. The only way you’ll find out is to sign up and take part in what is becoming one of the most popular races in the Southeast. You’ll be glad you did!
