    Cool-blue Rhythm Rollcall: CCCX XC #3 & #4 Fort Ord, Still no changes .......yet

    Looks like this one is on as planned, at least so far. Great weather is in the forecast. No rain lately means it's going to be dry and sandy, so bring your beach riding skills. Who's in and who's out? I missed the last one due to mysteriously passing out the night before. Ain't gonna happen this time. I got a clean bill of health and the wife will be out of town with her friends. So I'm racing even if I pass out and have to ride with an IV bottle in my Camelbak. I'll be repp'in Quadzilla in the big man class.

    I will be there in Cat 1. First race in Cat 1 and I am no where near ready to compete with these fools. It is going to be a suck fest and I will likely suffer the entire time. But guess what? I don't care. I really don't as long as I get to ride and give it a try. Did I already mention it is going to suck? Ok, just making sure. Don't worry Cat 2, I will pull over and let you by when it is time to get passed. It is the only polite thing to do.
    They never made the "Slowster"

    I’m in. Cat 2. I’ll be trying out one of those fancy-pants minimalist tires in the back, one of those super-fast 160tpi ones without a lot of tread. Oh, and I actually got my tires mounted tubeless this time around, I cannot believe how painless the mounting process was this time around—it was a tourette’s-filled afternoon the previous three attempts.

    I'll be around mid/back of the pack Cat 2. Repping the Las Vegas Cyclery kit and the good ole Titus. Finally moved out here.

    Amazing number of people turned up for the race!!! WOW! Weather was just about perfect, and the course layout was really fast— sort of a sprint race with a constant fast pace. I enjoyed it!

    From what I hear, next weekend will be the same course - but in reverse, mostly.

    Yes, they're not as fun when climbing but I can guarantee you flying down the ridge on the other side of the paved road is going to be super freakin fast, not to mention flying down the narrow single-track that you get onto after the initial paved start of the race, thats always high-speed mania.

    The first race did both and those sections are superfast. The climbing is a bit tougher but I like the longer fast sections. You just have to be comfortable going fast in the sand.

    Anyone interested in carpooling? I am in South San Jose off of Highway 85 a couple miles up from the 101/85 connector toward Gilroy (on the way to Fort Ord). I can drive or you can drive, I’ve got a multi-bike hitch-mounted rack for my Prius.
