Ken Rider, Director of Marketing & Sales for Grand Targhee, announced a special deal for a select number of early registrants. “We want to welcome the enthusiastic early-adopters,” noted Rider. “There’s some very good incentives in store for the first 20 to sign up on our registration site that add up to significant savings.” Rider explained that online registration for both the Festival and the weekend’s races can be found at http://wydahorendezvous.athlete360.com/ or by clicking on the

TVTAP’s Executive Director, Tim Adams, offered a nod to the Festival Sponsors and local bike shops for their role in making the 4th Annual Festival bigger, better, and a great value for participants. “We’ll be announcing the 2013 roster of sponsors in the next few weeks,” Adams said, “and I can promise our festival-goers that our very popular raffle prizes will be even more substantial this year. The same is true for our now-famous “swag bags” filled with giveaways, coupons, and product samples.”
According to Andy Williams, Special Events & Trails Manager for Grand Targhee and Tim Adams, TVTAP’s Executive Director, the 2013 Rendezvous will be offered as an “all-inclusive” weekend, where registrants pay one fee and are provided access to all Festival programs, including meals.
Williams explained that the 2013 Rendezvous will include parties with live bands and activities for the entire family, adding that, “With Dreamcatcher quad chairlift access, riders of all abilities can access long descents and a variety of terrain features—or they can enjoy rolling cross country rides right from the Bike Festival Village, which we are naturally calling the ‘Hub.’”
Continuing the tradition of previous years’ Festivals, 2013 Rendezvous will provide festival registrants with a host of activities from which to choose.
