The event that started it all is back and it's back with a new name! This year, it's the TORCA Mountain bike Pachanga. What's a Pachanga you ask?

PACHANGA Spanish /paw*chong*guh/ (Noun)

1. Party or Bash

2. A gathering of mountain cyclists in the Santa Catalina mountains to revel whilst shralping, camping, and imbibing.

This year we are pulling out all the stops and are adding more fun to the mix. Starting with a Freeride Friday sponsored by Guerilla Gravity. These guys based out of Denver, make awesome AM as well as Dh rigs and they are bringing them out for you to shred Aspen Draw.

Then, on Saturday, well have the 3rd Annual Poker Ride and Demo day and we're bringing out even more manufacturers. In addition, this year, you'll be able to take out the bikes on the Poker Ride to ensure you ride as much as possible on as many bikes as possible.

Lastly, we'll have the Inaugural "Funduro" on a Tucson favorite " La Milagrosa". This creative event takes the edge out of racing and make's it fun for everyone. We take everyone's time down the trail and then average the times. The riders whose times come closest to the avg time, WIN! Don't worry all you Strava chasers, we'll have prizes for you too!

Just like last year, we'll have food provided by Risky Business and brews from Borderlands Brewing.

TO SIGN UP,

> First, you must be a member(on the day of the event).
> For a limited time, you can visit TORCA.org and Pre-register. With your donation, you'll get a limited edition TORCA Pachanga Silipint that we'll keep filled for you all weekend. The preregistration will likely sell out based on last years attendance, so don't wait! Visit torca.org right away and sign up!

All proceeds go to helping us keep trails nice and tidy for you and help us work to get you some new ones too!

Definitely in, the poker ride is always a blast and the FF sponsored demo day sounds like more fun than living two blocks from Six Flags.

A couple last minute questions:

Is it too late to take part in the festivities?
-anything "sold out" at this point?

-I'm a TORCA member, but a friend may be wanting to join along for the FF stuff.

Do you have to be a TORCA member to do all/part of the events?

Gracias,

Corm
