Well registration opened today and the ccnbikes servers went down hard. Took about 1:20 before they got them up and working. I got in on the cheapest level, but the early bird discounts sold out very quickly after that. I went back in to register my wife who is on the fence of doing this race and all early bird pricing was gone.

Plenty of complaining on BC's facebook page. I was talking to a friend (on the phone) on the other side of the country and we were talking about bailing on the idea of the race.

The issues were not the race organizer's fault, so I didn't want to hold that against them.

I haven't done a race in 3 years and haven't trained in 4. Sure I ride a lot, but that is not training. Well here is to 51 weeks to get in shape.
