Can anyone explain the AMBC race vs. the DINO race?  Will the trail be the exact same, distance, direction, etc...?  And how will this same question effect the Cat 3 women that usually race the shorter lap?

Hopefully the answer hasn't been right in front of me.  :o  I've been looking...


I spent some time looking at the Pro/Elite times versus the CAT1 times in Warsaw.  It's probably expected that P/E finishes in front of CAT1 but I didn't expect it to be 100%.... 
The above observation made me really wonder what would happen if other classes rode at the same time and everyone raced the same distance.   Also for some time I've considered CAT's to be more like sprint distance, shortened distance and full distance, not exactly tied to your skill level but more about your endurance.(yes I know it's supposed to be about both skill and endurace)  I decided to take a few minutes and put all the Warsaw DINO times together and then make a few SWAG's of my own as to how much a CAT2 or CAT3 rider may slow down if you added additional laps to their race.
Some details:
  • I took each riders average lap time. 
  • The P/E and CAT1 Raced the 'full' length so there are no estimations for these riders.
  • When I saved the file I had it filtered on the worst case scenario that it would take CAT2 and CAT3 riders 20% above their average lap time to complete their additional laps.
  • My basic goal was to see what it would look like if everyone did the same race.
  • I fully understand there are a million other variables, this was my own little reference and I thought some may like to see how they may stack up against the competition.

Racing...from the novice to seasoned / 24 Hours of DINO - event question
« on: September 05, 2012, 01:57:58 PM »
Hello All,
I didn't see a thread on the 24 Hours of DINO... Hopefully I didn't overlook the obvious.
This will be my first time at the event.  I have read that there is camping with water and electricity a mile down the road at the park campground.   I'm not sure a mile away sounds like fun to me and I prefer to be where the action is....
A few questions:
Is a fairly quiet Honda generator frowned upon during 'non quiet' hours?
Is the large tent I see in pictures a place that people "hangout"
Is your campsite also your personal pit area if you have an awning and four person team?
Any info on the general layout is greatly appreciated.
If any of this is discussed in another location, please guide me. Thanks!

Rants and Raves / Calling "Rider/Biker Up!" Everytime

1st part
This goes a long way...  Calling "Rider/Biker Up!" Everytime you encounter another rider.
If you are solo... Call it out!
If you are climbing.... Call it out!
If you are riding with noobs in your group and encounter riders .... Call it out! 
If you want to actually have the right to have the "I just ate crap" look on your face.... Call it out!

2nd part
If you ride with headphones and still don't get over for climbers....  I can't even tell you on the web what I hope happens to you.

I had to rant and rave...


Versailles State Park / First Ride at VSP

Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you!  This place is amazing.  The trails are perfect. 

I rode the system for the first time today.. I arrived late with a friend, planning for a night ride. We had an absolute blast.  The light climbs are so perfect and almost nice to see.  The way these trails flow is just amazing.  I live 10 minutes from BCSP but will certainly plan on having day trips to VSP.  Sooo much good packed into this place. 

Thank you!
