    Giggity.

    2-run format sounds awesome. Now all we need to know are the courses. Guessing SD smooth and flowy is BoyScout to GirlScout, tech is Skyline to EastLeg?

    Thanks for posting this!

    I know they were having problems in previous races with locals going out and practicing the routes as soon as they were announced and trouncing the of the out-of-staters. My guess is that they would announce the actual courses until a day or two before the event.

    time between runs...

    Just worried about the time between runs will be too long. Then again, I guess it will give you time to recover from lower girl scout and middle lake view to do another run. I see that short climb on middle lake breaking the will of some folks.

    Event Page at SkeletalMetal.com

    Skeletal Metal just posted an event page on their website. The URL is-

    http://www.skeletalmetal.com/ScreaminSanta.html

    We should keep it pretty well up to date. We also have some pictures from the BT Bittersweet Downhill as well.

    The Skeletal Medal will go to the rider that goes the biggest, throws the best trick, etc... on one of the terrain features on the course.

    Breaking the will? Really? I didnt think it was that tough of a climb. I think I use to climb in middle ring as well. Hmm maybe not. I would love to get some shots of people hitting that G-out on upper though
    "Im just going to explore a little bit..."

    Dont make me be the bad guy...

    Do I need a pass to ride this trail?

    after sprinting the bottom of boyscout...

    and sprinting girl scout and the first part of middle lake view. I know the last thing I want to see is a short semi-steep climb that will take away all of my momentum. Then again, my bike weighs around 34-35 lbs. Besides, did you see the last Super-D race that used this route? I was at the g-out right before the decent down diva, a lot of people were hurting.

    amended schedule for screamin santa double down

    Hey all-
    Just wanted to amend the DH schedule- The race will start at 10:30, not 11:30. Also, seems to be the case that beginners and intermediates will run snakeback and/or sidewinder, advanced and pro will hit up armageddon to poop chute (may or may not be Steve Peat line) and all ends in DIVA. First run will be the same for all classes- straight snakeback to horseshoe to DIVA.
    Also- working this week on getting a live 4G feed hooked up on course. Looks like a live feed from the start and one at the finish and two cameras on course are coming together. The great thing about these cameras is we will monitor the course in progress, transmit for home viewing, and make a final edit. The quality of the feed is like a security camera and is not HD, but hey, it's a start and when has anyone broadcast a race live in these areas? Look for a sample vid hopefully by the end of the week on my myspace- www.myspace.com/johnsonrockhard

    Trust me the AZ crew is ready to head back up. Can't wait to get back up there again for round 2!

    My buddy did snakeback on an intense 5.5, he walked a couple of sections so I would say you can do it. It will be rough in a few sections though.

    Too bad about the middle lake view section of the Super D, that climb takes away a lot of momentum and makes the course favor a smaller bike. Plus anyone going all out on this 2 run format isn't going to have much in the tank for DH the next day. I think a lot of people were excited about a fast flowey Super D (the last few have been pretty pedaly). Boyscout to Girlscout would have been perfect. Oh well...

    I second that. What you need is a lighter enduro.

    I suppose you can't switch bikes between runs?

    Otherwise I think I'd bring my four inch HH100x for the Boy Scout to Girl Scout to Middle Lakes course and Delirium T for the second run (if it ended at the end of East Leg). Skyline to East Leg may be a bit much for the HH... but if the second course also finishes on the bottom of Girl Scout and Middle Lakes I think I'd still be faster on the HH even if I give up some on the upper part.

    Yep, a semi-light, 5-6" bike with tough wheels and tires run tubless built up around 30 lbs sounds like the ticket.

    Why no old guy classes for the SD? Intermediate men 45-57 sounds just right.

    KRob - you showing up?? I'm planning to be there but am a bit intimidated by the cold. Brrrrr. The Sept race was my first at Bootleg - my Lunchbox was the perfect bike for the SD but this time I'm going with clipped pedals instead of flats - lots of pedalling is required! I'm lovin my new ventures to the dark side and South Mountain shuttles have me itchin for the Bootleg DH race on my DHR. I am trying to gather more PHX locals so show up... especially girls. Where are all the DHing & SDing women? Know any? If so, pls encourage them to join the fun.

    Looking forward to the race, Francine!!

    Hey Kathleen,

    I'm going to have to miss this one. We've got a big family event that weekend.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the cold. It is rare for it to be very bad middle of the day in Vegas this time of year. I'd predict 50-60 degrees. Perfect racing weather. (Disclaimer: I could be wrong too. )

    The new DHR should serve you well on the downhill runs. Good luck.
