    Looking forward to round 3 this upcoming weekend. I see my wish was granted to have the fatties and the crazies separate - thanks! Is this so the fatties can smooth out the snow before the crazies go off? Either way it's good. That's gonna make for a really painful second race. I like that!

    Here's the link for reg for those that want in:

    @Norm Is it setup to reg for both classes at once? Is the second race discounted/free?

    Yes it is, but no I was overruled on the free 2nd race. Adding $9 to race the second one gives you an overall double for less than $30 total.

    That's cool. You should charge. Make it worth it for those souls who have to brave the cold, shovel snow, heckle racers... You know the good stuff. Sweet. I'm in.

    What's the course doing this week? Reverse? Same direction? Upper or lower line included?

    Sounds like fun. It'll be nice climbing the switchbacks in the snow :)

    Wow, that race was like 2 weeks after Thing 1 was born. For some reason I remember having done that race on your Cannondale Caffeine SS bike rather than that tank of a 26er.
