    In for solo six single.

    I loved this race when I did it last and it was a complete letdown that I couldn't do it last year.

    Actually I may just do both. I'd like to take a stab at the 8 hr series, which means doing all three...but a 6 hour recovery ride may be what the doc ordered after the summer 8.

    This years race is going to be killer with a Huge new Expo area that will include a Silent Auction from Shimano! Awesome food from the Smoking Buddha, beer from Wellington Brewery and blow your mind prizes for top finishers and draw prizes. This really will be an event people will be talking about, and all for $45/person~! By far the best bang for your buck out there. AND THE RACE IS IN THE HOOD!!! If you have never riden the hood, its like nothing else around!

    BUMP!
    Race day sneaking up fast! Less than 1 month to go.

    Only $45. That's half the price of other relay races. HALF!
    And of course proceeds go to support a local, non-profit, hardworking club.

    This will eventually broil into a 24h solo smackdown. This business will get out of control. It will get out of control and we'll be lucky to live through it.

    Rode the trails yesterday and they were in great shape! It was becoming a bit of a jungle but everything has been trimmed. Trails are nice and dry. The Shorthills crew have put a lot of work into trimming and grooming trails. I'm in a 3 man team and can't wait for the race.

    Have been out a few times in the hood this past few weeks and as others have said- SHCC members have done a great job with getting rid of the face slappers and knocking back all of the over grown areas!

    Going to do the solo, first time for me... just looking to get out and push the lungs to the limit and hopefully survive and not be DFL... Meh, even if I am DFL, the day will still end with a belly full of great food from the Buddha and I'm sure a few Welly's
