    Trogs Welcome

    I'd appreciate it if you Trogs and Trogettes would come by our tent and say hello.Before 10:30 or so would be best or just after the race before the awards. It's Forest Green with El Cerrtio Racing on the side. You were so cool last year to give up your group ride and help set up the course.

    Trail report

    See my photos and video from Wednesday, the trails are in great shape. I'll be there with DSLR unless it rains, which is highly unlikely. I don't know if this course is much different from the usual March race. But the area of the jump is under water. I hope they build another one so I can get some good photos of those crazy kids. Do I understand correctly that everybody else will be racing starting at 8 am and then the kids will have the course to themselves?

    Wherewolf in the hunt.

    We used some of your images, with your permission of course, from the 2004 Iron Angels race as gifts to the kids. We hope you will stop by and say hello and have a coffee.
    Here, as in many venues, races for the High Schoolers are run at seperate times from the adults simply because there are so many of them. I believe that this benefits the promoters as well as we are a pretty organized and civil bunch. We really appreciate the courtesy and, especially, their extra effort.
    Nice recent photos and sweet video Steve. I will forward this link to all our kids.

    All I know is that those youngsters can turn those cranks. Plenty of kids half my age passed me at SOC, and they sure were moving up the hills.
    Faster is not always better, but it's always more fun
