The MegaZound crew and Appalachian Bike Classic workers moved into the
Calhoun County Park last night in preparation for the two-day event which
draws cyclists from all over the country.
The large stage, sound and lighting system was being erected before dark
last night, with workers and bike race organizers enjoying a fish dinner
provided by Jim Bell and Duck Stevens.
Jim Burrows of MegaZound said the concert will have something for "just
about everyone." Music in the park will start at 2 p.m. and last into the
evening, climaxing with the appearance of Johnny Staats at 8 p.m.
Donations for the park will be taken.
Donnie Price said one of the Classics big spectator events, the Pond Jump,
is scheduled for 5 p.m. "Come on out and enjoy the day at the park," said
Price. "It is a great spectator event for young and old. There's lots of things
"There are great vantage points to watch the racers, with plenty of parking,"
Bike racing enthusiasts were already arriving last night to participate in one
of West Virginia's best races. The Appalachian Bike Classic will continue
