I typically slow down to their speed, give a friendly "hello" and usually they then pull over and "sorry." I say "no problem at all, thanks!"

Fantastic 4 / Re: Anyone ridden Nebo lately?

We rode Nebo 8/2 and it was in overall good shape. A few trees down, many of the either ride-able or you could go around. A couple are dismount/carries. A few wet spots, but nothing major. I don't ride this trail often, but it's such a good trail!

Ahhh. I gotcha.

Curious on that note:
up in the N/W corner there's a bridge, maybe 7-8' long that is listed as "black" and the trail around the bridge is listed "blue." Is there something I'm missing as to why that bridge is black?

But all Saturdays. Dang.

I've actually had his thought for awhile. My idea was one person though. Road TT to a point, switch shoes/bikes, etc and then MTB TT.

Man, between I69 and the Millcreek Park, Wap sure does get shit on huh? I know it will all work and the trail system will just end up being different, but it seems like Wap gets bullied and "they" just take whatever they want whenever they want.

I agree. I hit Wap fairly on the reg (live in B-town), but I haven't been for a few moths. I've been hitting it when frozen lately and there are many improvements. Big thumbs up overall!

Yay for the same course. Not that racing shouldn't be "fun," but generally speaking XC racing is about climbing, not "'fun' descents." Watch WC's, all the do is go up.

Giro Privateer is a solid shoe in your price range. Shop LBS, for sure. Don't go there and try them on and buy online. that's unethical. 

You don't have to sneak in anything, it's a free-for-all. I will tell you this: don't base your decision to go on whether or not Master's WC is a party or not. I competed in MWC last year and you could hear crickets chirping out there. It was d-e-a-d. But Elite's will be well attended. You have 1 chance in your life to see this. Between gas, your ticket in and some taco bell on the way back it will run you ~$50.

I just am not (and never have been) a fan of being scored with people I'm not actually racing against. I don't like the idea of finishing 1:59 behind someone and beating them. No doubt Battin, Messer, Tomasz, etc are good and faster than many of us, but we're all "in the same race," we just don't get the chance to actually race "against" them. We're just racing against them on paper.
If you pass a P/E, you know you've made 2minutes up on him, but you can beat someone and not even know it until results are posted. That's weird to me. 
If one of those dudes has an off day and beats you by like 5 seconds on the results page, if you had started with him, you would know you're on him and could try to capitalize. But the way it is he's still far enough ahead of you on course that you have no way to know to muster the motivation to go harder.

What if the P/E's were called up first, then AG lined behind them and all start at the same whistle?
