REGISTRATION CHANGES ANNOUNCED FOR 2013 WYDAHO RENDEZVOUS MOUNTAIN BIKE FESTIVAL
MOVE TO “A LA CARTE” CHOICES FOR THE WEEKEND DESIGNED TO APPEAL TO A BROADER AUDIENCE
Driggs, ID and Alta, WY. July 2nd, 2013. Grand Targhee Resort and Teton Valley Trails and Pathways (TVTAP) announced today that registration for the 4th annual “Wydaho Rendezvous Mountain Bike Festival” has been upgraded to give attendees a greater selection of options for the weekend of activities.
The price for admission to the 4th annual Rendezvous is now only $55.00 per adult for the entire weekend (see registration page for kids pricing), which includes an enhanced lineup of offerings at Grand Targhee Resort. The Festival kicks off on Friday, August 30th 2013—the start of Labor Day weekend—when hundreds of riders and their families from a multi-state region will participate in group rides, clinics, bike demos, parties and other activities during popular three-day event.
Tim Adams, TVTAP’s Executive Director, announced that a revamped pricing structure has been adopted to appeal to a wide range of mountain biking interests. “Our new ‘a la carte’ registration program is designed to welcome riders of all levels, from first-timers to elite racers—and from the very young to the recreational retiree,” explained Adams.
In explaining the new price structure, Adams also offered recognition to the Festival Sponsors and local bike shops for their role in making the 4th Annual Festival a great deal for participants. “We are pleased to be offering such a bargain for access to our outstanding Resort and Valley mountain biking resources,” Adams said, adding that “the basic weekend entry fee offers tremendous value for a whole weekend of activities. And registrants can select from a variety of options for expanding the Festival experience—add-ons like races, clinics, meals, and lodging are all available for quite reasonable prices.”
According to Andy Williams, Special Events & Trails Manager for Grand Targhee and Tim Adams, TVTAP’s Executive Director, noted that the races being held during the Rendezvous will appeal to a broad group as well. “This year we’re bringing back the popular “Super D” race on an improved course,” Williams announced. “In addition to downhill and ‘chainless’ races, we’re adding a “Strava” cross-country event, where a smart-phone app allows riders race a designated course at a time of their choosing and upload the results to compare with others online.”
The new basic entry fee for the 2013 Rendezvous will include parties with live bands and activities for the entire family. William pointed out that, “With Dreamcatcher quad chairlift access, riders of all abilities can access 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. A complete list of the 2013 Festival weekend Schedule of Events, including the popular Group Ride listing and registration, can be found on the Wydaho Rendezvous website www.tetonbikefest.org
