    Coolest 8/24HR - Who's going???

    Who's going? I'll be there doing the 8hr SS Solo as long as I'm not on-call. Anyone know if there's race day registration available?

    I think we both know Shoelaces is not the only fast guy on a SS. Especially over 8 hrs


    I'll be there pitting for Zon.

    Co-ed 8 hour. Racing in memory of my Grandpa, as well as Mikaela Ubry Knapp.

    Only 88 total people are registered thus far... it'll be a ghost town out on the course and nearly everyone/team will podium C'mon, people! The more the merrier... and it is all for a good cause! Get a buddy and do the 8 hour at least. Go solo 8 hrs and get in some solid training for an upcoming hundo... or the Downieville Classic.

    What else is competing for your time, money, MTB fix and beer drinking on June 21?

    I'll be there...

    Helping Jimmy put on an awesome event. Kinda hard to believe there is so little interest in such a "cool" event that benefits a great cause.

    Maybe 8hr/24hr endurance events have run their course for now. Certainly 24's more so than 8's. I know I don't really enjoy riding the same loop over and over again (which is why I always do 2 person 8 hour)... but it's hard for me to pass on a race in my backyard that is for a great cause, and put on by a good dude. But I sign up for these races cause it is fun to see/compete/hang out with familiar faces from all over that I only see at MTB races, which is why I'm disappointed with the current registration numbers. Bike Monkey/Boggs has certainly done a good job getting the huge crowds for an 8 hour (at an arguably better venue)... maybe today's racers are only down for one 8 hour per year though.

    But enduros, gravel grinders, CX and road crits seem to be blowing up among my friends that still ride bikes. The pendulum swings....

    its a cool idea, and northey is pretty awesome,.....but 8 hour or 24 hours racing in 100 degree temps is not fun. isn't this whole thing supposed to be fun?

    I think that's the problem, too many people have already stopped, before they even registered.

    Expect around 9-10 miles and a little over 1000ft of vertical per loop. Of course the course gets tweaked every year. It's never exactly the same.

    The basic loop -
