LetsRoll: Hopefully this will answer your Questions. This is an exchange between Holzhousen & my self.
I am just racing for fun this year. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis quite some time ago, but untill this last year I was able to keep it in check.
So! I don't know how I'm going to feal day to day! My dilemma is! I am to slow for Cat 2 but probably too fast for Cat 3. What I am trying to say is I will be very inconsistent from race to race.
If it would make it fair? I will go back to cat 2 otherwise I will finish out at 3 for this year.

As I recall, you raced in Cat3 sunday because you missed the Cat2 start.
I'm checking to see what you'd like me to do with your points - I can convert points per our rules either way.. just need to know which category you plan to be in for the rest of the season (assuming you will race more of them).
Glad to have you with us this weekend, Hope you enjoyed the extra long kayaking trip!
We will have them at Versailles, but Iím not sure whether they will be around Saturday afternoon / Sunday. Depends on who is pulling our trailer.
Amanda told me about your MS getting worse. Sorry to hear that, I hope that youíll have many more good days than bad ones!
Itís not really a problem to jump back and forth, especially since you havenít raced too much this year you wonít be in contention for series. You can even take it race by race this year and I just wonít compile points until we see which you end up doing more of.
Or if you want to commit to staying in one Cat we can do that as well.
A few of us went up and trimmed & weed whacked almost all of the new trail. The last part of the older trail (kintionki) has not been trimmed. All in all! The trails are in very good shape. A few of the log overs need some attention though. If you have not rode the new trail! ( the builders call it "Insanity" You are missing out on a 16/18 mile kick your Ass ride! Add the Blood Root trail & Snow trails for more miles or a cool down. I am Riding it tomorrow around 130 if anyone's got the time.

their website is not very user friendly. I tried searching rangeline and cannot find it. I tried entering my mileage as I rode it per day through March. I was not able to do that, so I entered all of my May mileage under one day. It,s probably cheating to a degree, but I still rode those miles. just not all at once as it appears.

Been there done it. Be prepared to suffer!! Most of all!! Get an up front starting position. I started mid pack and had to wait 15 minutes at a bottle neck where the road ends and the Single track starts. I blew threw 2 sag stops to recover some time. The best part is the 1 mile hike a bike up hill (not).
If I were in better shape, I would go with you.
