    New question here. Chico stage race 2008 ????

    Does anyone have any insider information on next year's promised stage race from the boys at Chico Racing?
    Especially the 'when' and the 'where'.
    Even vague information would be good.
    A rumour would be even better, life is kinda slow right now.
    Cheers, Dave

    Hang tight Dave...I believe there may be some information forthcoming in the next few weeks, but that may have changed if things haven't been confirmed. I check Chico's site daily for information, but nothing yet...I agree with you, things are definitely a little slow these days...That time of year I suppose.

    Ha, I was wondering about that also. I think something was mentioned about a low cap on registry so a was hoping that everyone forgot about the event. In the spring talks of registry was supposed to be right around now.

    I can see this as a July event. I don't think the boys from Chico would want to try running a 24 hour and a stage event in the same month. It will be interesting to see the route they come up with.

    I was also thinking about this event yesterday, when I was contemplating what races I was going to do next year.
    So nobody knows anything yet?
    I'm hoping that we will be able to do this event solo as I never have anyone to team up with.

    Rumour mongering.....

    I heard 3 days in September in the near North, but not necessarily the long weekend.

    The word on the street is that may be the case, but I don't want to rumour monger.

    Ahhhh.
    Well, it's nice to know that there are others out there thinking about this race.
    July would work for me. September might be more difficult.
    I've never done a partner stage race ( never done a stage race either ) but it could be interesting to have to hook up with someone rather than just doing it alone.
    Racergurl, shouldn't be too difficult to hook up with someone from here if we have to go with partners eh? You could always go with a mixed team.
    Where is the near North? Bancroft-ish?
    Cheers, Dave

    september is the rumour...

    july is reserved for BCBR... august for TR, september for this one... 3-4 days, sub 1000 for entry fee, most likely in 800ish range, sleeping indoors, everything included...

    most likely team race, 150ish teams...

    haliburton forest should be included...

    This is what I heard. Which bums me out. Working in education, September is busy, busy, busy and taking anytime off is likely not an option.

    Hmmmm, is that an offer, dskunk? Mixed team sounds good to me. There are very few women whose company that I can stand for more then a day.

    God, I can't believe that we are going to have to wait until next September (according to Osokolo) to do this race?

    Tell ya what, if there are no teams then we will race against each other as mortal enemies ( although in separate cats ), but if there are teams then we race under the same flag. That's an offer eh?

    I plan to glue myself to the rear wheel of the mighty dskunk for every stage, and then just try to grit my teeth and hang on for dear life.

    But seriously, dskunk, you are way too fast to team up with the likes of me. Obviously finding a partner with similar abilities, speed and endurance wise, is quite an important factor. Mortal enemies it is then.
    Don't see why people can't be given the option to race solo or team in this event.

    As for that naked mile thing. Count me out. That's just nasty! All those poor bike seats.

    well, then you keep the shorts on....

    topless is acceptable as well...

    team race is something to remember - way more than individual... dont forget the safety aspect as well...

    September 2008 (between two dates)

    3 days, 2 person teams, we almost have the preliminary course dialed 80km - 90km per day. It will most likely begin at Buckwallow and end in Halburton region.

    If I attempted to ride topless on my HT my boobs would be an inch lower after that mile. All that bouncing. Wouldn't subject my girls to that kind of torture.
