After an absence of more than a decade , The Trek Bicycle Store of  Mt. Pleasant / Piggly Wiggly Cycling Team is pleased to announce The Return to Killer 3 Mountain Bike Race presented by The Trek Bicycle Store of Mount Pleasant.  The race will be held in Manchester State Forest just outside of Sumter, SC on March 13, 2011.  The Killer 3 race was a popular race series that occurred in the early to mid nineties.

The Trek Bicycle Store of Mt. Pleasant / Piggly Wiggly Cycling Team has revived the event for a one day race on the same trails that made the race popular in the nineties.  The trail, formerly named best in the state, features a mixture of rolling terrain that is surprisingly hilly for this area of the state.  The 10 mile trail can also be technical in some areas with sharp turns, jumps, and in some cases sand. The trail is 90% single track.

A strong cash purse will be awarded to the pro/expert classes while the Trek Bicycle Store of Mt. Pleasant has stepped forward with a generous prize package that will be distributed to other classes.  The top male and female racer from the Charleston area in each class will also be awarded a special prize.

Participants can register at The Trek Bicycle Store in Mount Pleasant, SC or online at pre-reg.com.  Those in the lowcountry can save on registration by registering in person at the Trek Bicycle Store.  For more information contact racedirector@trekcyclingmp.com or visiting www.trekcyclingmp.com.

    Today a friend told me about your race – interested, I came home and looked it up. I was planning on coming until I read about the $10 late fee charge. I know there is a cost and tons of hard work & preparation that it must take to put on even the smallest of events like this, but in today’s economy I have grow weary of the late fee penalties that are tacked onto cycling events. I am not a pro, but a 50 year old dad with 2 kids in college.

    Good luck – maybe next year.

    Brad,

    Sorry that you couldn’t make it (and sorry about the $10 fee–it’s not something that we want to do, but as promoters, it is better for us and everyone if people pre-register–which is what we were trying to encourage). Look for us again next year (same time frame).

    Thanks,
    Geoff
