A question

I have a question about this race, and now that you have posted, I will ask away. Isn't Sport normally two laps? Somewhere in the neighborhood of 14ish miles?
Why is this race different?

i'm doing the race this year...still not sure whether i'm doing beginner or sport. i know i'm good for seven, but not sure about 21. if it was on the road, that'd be a different story.

Its an easy ride

I'm in my second year of Sport and this was one of my favorite races last year. This course has VERY few obsticles. Sport riders can finally have some fast singletrack that will make you feel you are an Expert rider. Rocknrollgirl, you will definitely like this course. It's like the running of the dogs, but without so much techy stuff. smiles, Jess

thanks Jess

Thanks Jess, I loved The Dogs course, and I look forward to racing on it when it is dry. Perhaps it was the mud coating, but I did not find it too technical, it was great. Just the right balance. Challenging and fun.
I am very disappointed that I will miss the Bulldog Romp, because of a wedding of all things. Argghhhh.....

My dilemma with the LMC is beginner seems too short, and sport, well seems too long.... Where oh ,where is the 14ish miles....Just Kidding.
I will be in Alaska for almost two weeks prior to the race, returning back with just one week until race day, so the 21 miles is scaring me off.

What is the worst that could happen, I completely suck it up for the last half hour.....

Thanks for your input, see you Saturday at the 12 hour....

i think i may go the sport route. it's not the techy stuff that kills me as much as hammering through the rocks. if that's a minimum, i'll give sport a shot. i'm just going to have to REALLY up my milage in the next two months to get ready. oh well, let the fun begin!!
