So, who is doing the 24 hours race this weekend?
« on: September 06, 2012, 08:59:18 AM »
It should be a fun time.  No solo 24 for me this year as I am part of a 4 man team.  I may actually get to enjoy some of the comraderie and festivities, instead of just riding by in a zombie-like state.

The entry list should be up on our site shortly once our webmaster updates it. Fett, your team won't be listed yet since I did the download prior to your registration. We have about 90 riders signed up... on par with last year... there is still room for plenty more!
(Online registration is open right now but will close shortly so I can pack up and head south. On-site cash/check registration Friday 6-8 pm and Saturday 8-11 am.)


The weather looks good once the chance for Friday night storms passes. Nice and cool, no rain forecast after start time (noon Saturday)... good campfire weather!

I had to do some scrambling this week as our fastest rider (Ben Weaver) crashed and broke a rib in a road race on Sunday and is out. It took a bit of begging and bribery, but I did find a suitable replacement.

6 Hour for me. Not sure how I will hold up as I haven't been able to get in as many long rides as I would like, but I figured I'll give it my best shot. Looking forward to it. Its been well over a year since I have been to Versailles.
 
One question, how far are the solo pits from the start/finish line?

Al Weir and I will be doing the 12 hour 2 man race for BOI.  This will be my first time at the 24 hours, next year hopefully I'll be on a 24 hour team and get the full experience!

12 solo again this year.  Goal is at least 2 more laps than last year.

24 solo for me and my daughter and the first time on a fully rigid for me. I'm planning on following her the entire time so she doesn't get lost! If she gets tired, Ill just continue alone.

This will be my 4th solo 24hr DINO and third on a SS (placed third once). I've done 2man 12hr (2nd place), solo 12hr, 6 co-ed 24hr(1st place) and 4 man 24hr as well.

This is about the only MTB race I do all year because I really like the easy pace you can take and still do well.

I hope everyone meets or exceeds their goals for this weekend.
