    Lemurian 2009

    Hey Lemurian Guy,

    Is the date set yet for 2009? I want to make sure my hall pass is secure...

    How's the course? I understand the fire ripped through there pretty bad last summer.

    Thanks,

    Dave
    If white is the "new black", then thanks but I'll stick with the old black...

    The date is set!

    Saturday April 25 2009 is the date. Its true that the fires ravaged much of the terrain west of Redding including parts of Whiskeytown. Fortunately the race course was untouched as were most of the other trails! The one caveat is that an area above Brandy Cr Falls burned. The park service has closed the Brandy Cr drainage (Ice Box) to the public until May 1 due to risk of a debris flow. However Lemurian has received permission to use the same course as last year so long as there isn't a big rain event immediately before or during the event. In that case, we'll still go April 25th, but will use an alternate course based in Whiskeytown's Peltier Valley. I haven't yet worked out all the details for "Plan B", but given the wimpy rainy season we've had so far I think the odds of using the alternative course are pretty slim.

    Any chance to make this race less painful and demoralizing this year?
    Just kidding.

    Found myself checking out last year's GPS record of my race today at lunch. Looking at the course with the Satellite view, I remember now how fun that course was -- most of the time. Even though it was the most misery I've ever been in, I'll probably do it again. Hopefully I can beat my 2008 time of 4:05

    Lemurian is pretty brutal. But it's a great challenge and you guys always do a great job of organizing it. I'll be there again this year for sure.

    Uh oh. My only bike is now a singlespeed and I am going to hate myself. But not racing the Lemurian is not an option
