    Who's doing the Annadel Race?

    The Annadel race is coming up August 17th.

    I may volunteer to work the race this year instead of racing it-- Who's planning to be there?

    Huh?
    Your third, but expecting a fourth? That's kinda pessimistic.

    My son and I are planning to race at Annadel. This will be our first time in the race, and we are looking forward to it.

    Annadel 2011 was probably my favorite race ever. Loved the neutral-ish start in the center of town (single-speeders didn't love it). Enjoyed the course. Was rewarded for having a little local knowledge when a mixup in the background colors of the number plates got a portion of my class sent in the wrong direction by course marshalls

    I had a cold beer in my hand like <90s after crossing the finish. Thanks, Lagunitas.

    If you are considering, go for it.

    Love Annadel and Bike Monkey, but it's such a fun place to ride, I would rather just ride for fun.

    Definitely. This is a fun race with a hairball start!

    Here's my video from 2011:

    I'll be there. I think it's the best race around. Got tech, got super mega warp speed sections, you never climb for all that long in one section and it's all middle ring. All in all, Annadel rules. I missed it last year and was bummed!

    In for the 3rd season. Hoping to move up in the standings ever so closer to the podium.

    I'm not sure what category to register for. I raced U35 sportsman in the Sonoma series and that felt like where I was supposed to be, but Annadel offers the U35 Sport for the short course and for the long course its just Sport Open.

    Yeah I see that. And why can't Sport Women do the long course? Hhmmmm? I'd be questioning that.
    Wait,who did he tell you that?....

    Same here. So....if it's like our last 2 outings, I guess I can take credit for moving you up a few spots then.

    'Nother good vid, Hans. Can't believe the d'bag riding the sidewalk at the start. Looks like you made some good moves near the end.

    Any chance there's a GPX of the track for those of us (me) who have never ridden Annadel and would like to pre-ride the course this weekend?

    I'm planning on riding there at least one day this weekend, and could show you the course.
    Which course are you registered for?

    Depends on your fitness level, npridmore.

    I choose the shorter course since I'm already beat by the time I'm done with that. The downside is you end up in the way of a lot of pro/expert guys as they catch up from their long course and there's almost no room to let people pass on Ridge trail.

    Also the short course allows me to get in the beer/food line sooner.

    The only climb I would want a full suspension on would be shultz, and the only downhill that I'd want a full suspension on would be cobblestone. Other than that it seems a hardtail would be the best bike for the race. That loose top part of lawndale (just before the forest) might be kinda hairy at race pace on a hardtail though...

    A reg tallboyc. I remember lots of rocks and one really rocky fire road width DH towards the end of the race before getting back onto the path to the finish. Plan to ride the ht this coming week there if I can squeeze it in.

    Ya there are most definitely some rocks involved. Thats a really hard decision though because both bikes would have definite strengths. While a the highball would be great to hammer up richardson, south burma, and shultz, after 35 miles and lots of rocks a hardtail may not sound like a very good idea if you've got a tallboy at home.
