    11/9 Cave Creek Cactus Classic (C4) sound-off

    Who's planning on attending this year? State your team name if you have one.
    I rode the course yesterday and Spur Cross has been groomed almost all the way to the top. The rocky sections seem chunkier because of the summer rains and the stream bed is pretty rough as well. CC Rec is in good shape (as usual) and the sand in the creek bed has been raked away some to make the crossing 1000% better. CCBA is that you? Anyway, thanks to all the volunteers that have put time and effort into making this year's race a great one. See everyone on the 9th!

    This is a really good local event run by passionate mountain bikers.

    A majority of the Nationwide/Veloworx team will be out there as these are the "home trails" for many of us.

    I am plus or minus at the moment. My rear brake rotor is bent and rubbing slightly on the pad but if I bend if off the pad, the rear brake doesn't work very well. If I can get my bike fixed and riding normal, then Ill prob sign up.

    Thanks WoD for posting the link. I do know that the race will follow the same exact course as last year but we may be in for a slight change next year (fingers crossed)...the re-birth of Surrey Hill. Anyhow, the Cave Creek Bike Assoc (local IMBA Chapter) has taken over responsibility for the race from the Town of Cave Creek and they're really hoping for a good turnout to keep this thing going. In case anyone has not seen the new promotional artwork for the race, here it is:

    Yeti- what size and style rotor do you need to get by? I have a few six bolt 160mm avids lying around-cheap as in come get it and it would be free.

    I am trying to do this one. I will be on my Vassago SS and doing it as a fitness check as I get ready for the MBAA series.

    Yes. Anytime, including at night. Here is the Strava segment of what could be the course. Begin and end at Flat Tire Bike Shop in downtown Cave Creek.

    Strava Segment | FTBS CCBF w/ Surrey

    Have fun, bring water and stuff for flats!

    Just remember that it is not identical to the actual race course as the parts in the town of cave creek are a little different. However it does cover all the important areas.

    Best bet is to do the shop ride on Sunday. There is usually a big enough turn out to split into groups based on how fast you want to go.

    It's easy to get lost on this loop your first time.

    oh sorry.. I assumed it was 200... oh well, I guess thats out for me... I would have to gain at least 25 lbs for that... and that ain't happening...

    seems right since I know a few 200 pounders that can really crank...

    I'm just on the cusp of qualifying as a rockcrusher - maybe 10 pounds short. If I eat a McDonald's every day for lunch and dinner between now and the registration deadline, I can get my first podium win on November 9.

    Yep, it's a know fact that "fat" riders are slow.

    Good luck with that.

    I ask only because I know Kaolin and I have met some of the other workers there..... You seem to know a lot of the happenings of Cave Creek mountain biking, so this is why I ask...

    I do a lot of riding in the cave creek area and its nice to put a face with a name
