Tour de Dirt Bike Race: Purcell Lions Club
This Sunday we held our second annual Tour de Dirt Mountain Bike Race at Lake Thunderbird in Norman, Oklahoma.
This is the first event of the year for Mountain Bike Racers in Oklahoma. It is fully sanctioned by USA Cycling. According to the people participating this is the largest Mountain Bike event in Oklahoma.

Lions Club Member Greg Wayland brought out his portable grill and cooked Hot Dogs, Bratwursts and Hot Links for the event. This event is the Purcell Lions Club's main fundraiser. We were able to raise about $1800 last year and we are hoping to raise about $2000 this year.

. A local micro-brewery called 405 Brewing Co came out and provided free samples of their beer. Seemed a little odd at first, but when you consider the riders are going a minimum of 9 miles and up to 27 miles a glass of beer after your race is probably burned away as soon as you drink it.
