    Sounds great and if that's the track I've been to in the Springs before I'd love to be there but since I'll be getting my hard cast off the 13th and going into a aircast don't think the doc or wifey would be real up on that

    yes, tis the season. there will be no indoor racing this year, so we are going to run a mtb open once a month at the out door track. a one day license is free. as always we'll have the best prizes, lowest entry fees and the hottest racing action.

    MX or BMX?

    If you hold a MX race and we ride MX bikes on a BMX track, aren't we just racing BMX?
    Not that I don't enjoy pedaling but what about it makes it a MX race?

    Is this a MTB race, as stated, or a BMX race, like everything else makes it look like?

    This was just a way to keep people riding year around.

    This track is BMX course that has a very fast downhill first straight with some jumps that will make the best of them pucker up. I left a little skin on the back side of the double. This track has good flow that will challenge the best of riders. It has a pro section if you choose that line. There will be some pedaling involved but not like most BMX tracks. It was built with the help of the US Olympic for training of our US athletes. Go to the Pikes Peak BMX track website and take a look. http://pikespeakbmx.org/index.html The choice can be made race day to run four riders or eight at a time. We can see what the majority wants to do. This track is the closest one I know (that is operating during the winter) that is close to 4x track layout.

    This is at the Rampart Track, right? It looks like it on the webpage and I think thats the only one done up like the Olympic track... But the website doesn't say where it is, specificaly.

    Is this still happening this weekend?

    Go or No?

    What is the word on the race re weather. Will Pike's Peak run the races with snow/moisture on the track? I cannot imagine the track can be clear and dry. Sunny and 32 degrees for Sat.

    Are we racing?

    I hope the cancellation was due to the possibility of damage to the track and not just because it's cold and snowy. I would hate to have to tell people that I race bikes but only in good weather!

    Are we men or are we roadies? See ya next month!

    I was thinking of the open and the Tara Llanes benefit at Wahoo's. Perhaps all us cruiser, open, mx guys could have a separate "wager" of $10, $20, $50 on the results. Winner gets to donate the proceeds to the benefit Sat night and has his or her food or drinks taken care of by the rest of us.

    Anyone interested?
