    I might, there is Lake Sonoma race that day too that is closer and only $35 bucks compared to $85 dollars?!

    If I do, I will sign up for XC.

    Oh since Im doing and have always done XC, I may jump on tonight after I ride and drink a glass of my yummy "InZinerator" wine. No rush, but I dont want to be one of the last to sign up like last yr.
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    Did you get in?

    I got the following error message:

    Bummer.

    in, and i forgot to do it right at 8:00pm. I guess there must be an advantage to just signing up for the xc.

    got snaked...got in before it showed as full but apparently didn't click 'i agree' before it sold out even though I was signed into active and ready to go. I'm guessing my laptop and its lack of mouse cost me getting in...oh well, I just saved about $500 or so all things considered. still pretty bummed though...

    I'm using my race funds to get my shock push'd and sign up for the Ashland Super D. Not all bad!

    Haha, this AM crap is OUT OF CONTROL!

    Anway, I got into the XC, Sport Men 34 and under

    Last year I did beginner, but new bike and improved me! Shall be fun

    On a separate note, why is Downieville 85 dollars (91.99 w/ Active fees) while Sea Otter is only $45 and any other race is 30-45 and boggs is $70, seems like a lot? Just curious.

    D'oh is right! What's up with you boys forgetting? ;-)

    I'm in for AM >35. I expect that you and Empty Beer will be hauling me up on many training weekends since this my first Classic and I'm being forced to race Expert.

    Because this is not just a race, it is an EVENT that requires lots of permits, lots of help to make it work. I also road race and most only cost $20...But the Downieville race is much more complicated then racing around in circles ( laps, ) like most races. I assure you they are not getting rich, this is what needs to be charged to put this event on

    The other ones do not have to pay as much in Permit fee's and are not point to point to races that require a lot more logistical support.

    You know this as a fact? You keep track of how much all mountain bike races pay in fees and permits? If so I'll believe you, just wanna make sure you'ne not just tossing out random statments.
