    Cheq Fat conditions?

    Anybody up in the Hayward/Cable area ridden the course this week? Dry as a bone in the southern part of the state but seems like quite a few storms up that way in the past few weeks. It usually dries out pretty fast but I've done the race in wet conditions and it really slows things down. Thanks

    Rode it over the weekend. Mostly dry, some spots very dry, but a few green slimy waterholes in the usual places. Should be fast.

    I love this race!!! Have fun and enjoy the whole Effing experience! Rosies field, the fire tower hill climb and those continuous rolling hills the last few miles where riders will cramp and lose 50 places in their finish position.

    From the minute you get there to lounging after the race, to the moment you are wondering if you could have went faster while pulling up a spot on the bowl to enjoy a cold beverage.

    This will be my 8th Fat Tire 40 and I have been one of those guys cramping in the last 10 miles. Getting older (I'm 54) but not wiser because I keep signing up year after year.
