Terror of Teaberry
Published: 09/07/2007September 7, 2007; Conshohocken, PA, USA: Harlan Price of Independent Fabrications described the Terror of Teaberry as, “The hardest but most rewarding race around if you approach it right.” Held in the Michaux (pronounced “me-show”) Forest near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the Terror of Teaberry is so big that it is included in both the DelmarvaJobs.Com Mid-Atlantic Super Series and the Michaux Endurance Series calendars.
After last year’s Terror of Teaberry, Trek-VW superstar Jeremiah Bishop wrote in his blog, “Ouch.. This race was no joke...That was the most exciting course I have raced all year. It took total concentration and steel nerves. I even ran a 2.35 tire on the front! Now THAT is Back Country Cross Country!”
If last year’s 35 mile race impressed top pros that much, one can only wonder what they’ll be saying following this year’s new, expanded 50 mile, single-loop, edition on September 16. In addition to the 43% increase in distance, this year’s Terror of Teaberry has also added an affiliation with the DelmarvaJobs.Com Mid Atlantic Super Series, with the result that the 2007 Terror of Teaberry is now a full points race for both the Hammer Nutrition Endurance Super Series and the Cannondale Cup Super Series for Teams -- in addition to being the final event of the Gettysburg Bicycle and Fitness Michaux Endurance Series.
The Terror of Teaberry will be held rain-or-shine on Sunday, September 16 in the Michaux Forest near Gettysburg Pennsylvania. More information, including directions, see the official race website, www.racemichaux.com. Free on-site camping is available for all Michaux Endurance Series races; and all competitors are being encouraged to pre-register on BikeReg.com for this amazing event. As Race Director Jes Stith says, “This will, hands down, be the toughest 50 miles that anyone will ever do.”
