    A little bit off-topic, but does there exist a map of the course?

    oddly, the course is entirely uphill, but the fast SSers are some of the fastest over all..

    Sorry I didn't stick around to give you a nutter butter after the long climb... I had to go "encourage" near the end of the race.
    Thanks man! I was really hurting from my stomach at the time, and later on I was dyeing from not being able to breathe anyway

    At the bottom of some of the 3 arrow downs, there were some 4 wheel drive folks too. I cleaned all the downs, everytime it seemed there were a bunch of stoked people at the bottom encouraging me on It was a nice first - time experience!

    There may exist a map somewhere, however the first time I saw the map of the course was on the sign at the college. Small map, I didn't take notes or anything, however it did have descriptive trail names. The only name I recall seeing on the couse was "Angwish Hill"

    This is what my gps / bike computer recorded. It's effectively a map.

    If you open it in Google Earth you can get more detail, and it's possible to have it overlay a topo map in google earth.

    I can second that, I ran em around 43+ psi and they cleared really well.

    On another note, thanks to all who came out, Great to see the Cyclesports crew and others...

    I did this race last year and had a blast. This year was even better. So many cool people. I have a race report posted @ http://sfcyclist.blogspot.com/

    Nick! I am kind of dense. I didn't realize you were Nick from cyclocross when we were talking. Good to see you. Man you had a good time for the course! I am definitely going to target this race for improvement next year.

    What gear were you running? Those Bianchi Ritas are nice...

    The red necks are one of my favorite features of the course... they call us lycra wearin' fagg0ts when we're out on the road, but they seem very curious when it comes to this race.

    Joking aside, those guys from Pope Valley are a great bunch and they keep the lower trails maintained with their atvs.

    Gearing on the Rita

    Morgan,

    No worries,

    I was using a 33X19 gear on the Rita... A bit stiff on the climbs but managable.

    It is a great bike I love it......

    My bike was pretty fouled up after the race.



    I didn't wash it until today. Tonight's my regular Thursday night ride, and it was not really in a rideable state. I know you're not supposed to wash Blurs - the Santa Cruz bikes' pivots don't like water - but damn it was funky.



    I'll rebuild the pivots when they start creaking again.

    Nice shiny bike:



    Rides nice too, no noises, I can backpedal, sweet. I'm stoked for tonight's night ride. Gonna swap the Michelin Muds for some bigger Nobby Nics when I get home from work.

    A map of the trails of the area may or may not exist. There is NOT one posted online, and there MIGHT be a hand-drawn one at the LBS in the area, depending on the quality of beer you're bringing in.

    I get paid to ride shotgun.

    Rumor has it the PUC told that shop to knock it off.
