    Good luck Greg! I would love to as I grew up about 10 minutes from that area and moto'd out there daily, but not quite ready yet. My 2 cents regarding race prep would be intense short range intervals. No long climbs, but almost constant small scale up and downs. The dirt tends to be pretty loose and transitions from moon-dust to sand to hard pack and has a healthy sprinkling of shale rock throughout. Fun riding for sure!

    Thanks for the tips magnum. Hell I dont know if I am ready for it, hence why I am doing the Sport (beginner) class at 11 miles. I figure it will be like most races I do in sports, I will be a middle of the pack finisher (if this ankle heals up soon enough). Will be fun and should have the new GEAX Gato to compliment my Saguaro by this weekend.. Really not that impressed with the Purg Control :shrug:

    Ankle still isnt stellar but should be good by next weekend to do some riding... Can actually walk normal and the Zpack is helping everything else. God was this my month to get sick/injured/etc or what...

    Ok, Registration has FINALLY opened for this. Ankle is feeling better and can do some riding. Will be going out to the trail this weekend to give it a real shot (did just sandy path/multi-use trail while the wife ran with the dog this weekend).

    I'll be racing this one again this year. Last year it was the first bike race that I ever competed in. I was about 2 months into my cycling career, and got my ass kicked royally(single-speed). I had no idea what I was in for... With that said, It was the race that got me started in cycling, and I've come a long long way since last year at that point(Completed Leadville 100 in 10hours only 3 months later that year). I'll be racing the Cat 2 class, and hoping to finish pretty high up there. See you guys out there!

    yeah this will be my first ever race and I have been mtb'ing for about a year now on my bike (1 1/2yrs total). Excited to do it though and see how things go.

    Just an FYI, the first mile of the course has changed. Supposedly they took out the steep climb at the beginning but I do not know for sure.

    Ok for anyone that hasnt headed out yet that is going down apparently there is construction on PineNut RD so you have to bypass it. Go past PineNut Rd turnoff on 395 and head another 1200ft. make the next left. Kinda vague but that is what is on their facebook...

    Met up with Magnum at the race, was great to meet you dude.
    He apparently finished second in the 19-39 CAT 3 race and from what my wife was saying I finished 5th. Not sure what Magnums time was but I ran a 1:07:05. Not to shabby for my first race and probably could have shaved a few minutes off had I not stopped to help a fallen biker. Guy went down hard in a techy downhill section and took a big gash over his eye.

    All in all was a blast and looking forward to the next one. How about you Magnum??

    It was a pleasure to meet you Greg, and good job! Fun course and perfect weather. And you're right, I finished second with 54 min time I believe?? I poured it on from the ravine to the finish and made up a lot of time on the leader, but came up 3 seconds short Good on'ya for helping that guy out, saw him after the race, looked rough.

    Here are a few of pics from the day:

    Good job guys!

    I finished P10 in Cat 2. Went out too hard in lap 1, but then just settled in and finished in 1:45.

    Do you guys do the Twilight Series? Thursday nights in Reno.

    Way to go, everybody!
    That keyring puck is pretty cool. Was that your medal, .357?
