XTERRA World-bound Robyn Wodrasek's fundraising bike race will be held this Sunday.
Registration starts at 6:30am at the Capital Hill Ballfield, while the race begins at 7am. Entrance fee is only $10 and each biker gets a raffle ticket. Two Hell of Marianas slots and other prizes will be raffled off.
Bikers can choose from the four courses, which are great warm-ups for the HOM.
The MTB sport course will have bikers starting and finishing at the Capital Hill Ballfield and pedaling to Wireless, Kingfisher, and Egigi. For the full course, from the softball pitch, riders will head to Wireless, Kingfisher, Egigi, down to Kingfisher again, Egigi, and back to the pitch.
For the road bike category, the sport course will cover the softball field, Kingfisher, and back to the starting/finish line. In the full course, from Kingfisher, riders will have to go to Kagman High School before returning to the softball field.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will be used for Wodrasek's stint in the 2012 XTERRA World Championships. The Marianas High School teacher will be Saipan's representative in the 25 to 29 age group competition of the premier event that will be held on Oct. 28 race in Kapalua in Maui, Hawaii.
Wodrasek qualified for the tournament after winning in the 2012 XTERRA Saipan Championships in March. The triathlete's XTERRA World trip is made possible through the support of the following: IT&E, Powerade, Pacific Trading, Handbags, MARPAC, Marianas Resort, Restaurant 360, Shell, Joeten Superstore, Hollywood Theaters, Paradise Island Animal Hospital, and Microl-Toyota.
