Hotter'N Hell Kickoff

Wichita Falls, TX -
 Thursday kicked off the Hotter'N Hell weekend and many people packed the MPEC Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall for the annual consumer show.

Newschannel 6 was at the MPEC where people from all over were doing a little shopping and picking up their registration packets for the big race on Saturday.

While inside racers and riders were able to browse and shop from some 90 vendors. There were all sorts of cycling relating products such as bikes, riding gear, tires, and souvenirs.

"We'll probably spend a couple of hours here, wandering through all the boots and seeing all the vendors, different pieces of the bike, new tires and wheels and the whole nine yards,” said Dan and Robyn Hanson,  HHH riders from Georgetown, Texas.

The consumer show will continue throughout the weekend at the MPEC inside the Ray Clymer Exhibit Hall. It will be open Friday from 1 p.m. -10 p.m. and on race day from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. 

On Friday is the all you can eat spaghetti dinner at the Kay-Yeager Coliseum. It starts at 5:30 p.m.  Newschannel 6 will be there for that event and live for the big ride Saturday morning.
