    Slightly off topic. I remember reading about one of the former high school state champion that trains in demo during the wknd, 2 laps each time...rides a specialized...Think the first name is John??

    Anyone know who I am talking about? Trying to find out more info about this rider.

    On a side note. Wish I had the support back then like the kids have these days.

    OMG, get some first time racers a huge dose of poison oak. Sounds like a recipe for disaster.

Then...I'll be sweeping Varsity Boys race which starts around 1 p.m. Francis, get there by 9 to set up for the start on the beach. It'll be sooooo rad! Be sure to bring cowbells along with all those cameras! Go NICA/Go Norcal! yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Serious? Verycool.

    Washington is rolling into its second season, first race in March with 3 to follow. Twice as many as the first season. The venues are more evenly distributed throughout the state this year and in fact, we're hosting a race here in my hometown. There are 3 teams from our region of the state where there was only one last season. Two are sanctioned HS club teams while the third is a composite team. I figure there will be close to 60%-70% more student-racers statewide this season over last.

    More states joining...more kids getting involved in organized cycling...more adults stepping up to coach and ride lead. Good stuff.

    I think the first heats start at 10. IIWY, I'd get there at least an hour ahead of time so you'll have time to park, and ride to a scenic or interesting spot on the trail. Longer if you're going to socialize.

    Get there early and tour the paddock area if you really want to see what this NorCal thingy is all about. You will be amazed. Walk around, watch and listen. Soak it up.

    The racing is just kids pedaling hard; it is only the icing an a truely great cake that is so much more involved.

    I've never had a Pliny. I've never had the honor of meeting you...

    Remember the Trojans/Spartans!!!!


    p.s. It's a high school event... perhaps we drink beer "off campus"

    Awesome! After, there are a few coaches that will be doing shuttle runs in Auburn. You should join if you can.
