The 9th annual Burn 24 hour Challenge will return in 2009 with a new website, sponsors and directors. The event is scheduled for May 23-24.
Former sponsor Burn Energy Drinks is up for sale and will not be present at this year's event, but organizers decided to keep the name to avoid confusion. Bikerumor.com will take over as the main sponsor of the event.
"I'd also like to announce that I am passing the hat of race director to Jason Bumgarner," said former director Eddie O'Dea. "Jason has been involved with the Burn 24 since its move to the Dark Mountain Trails. He is a very capable guy and should have no problem delivering a top notch race."
