    Guess I did leave myself open for that one As far as for me winning any prize money, yeah right, I will probably bounce off a tree somewhere down the course before I finish . I would offer to bring some firewood, but since Wes is going to be there I will probably just bring some SPF 45 sun screen

    question...

    I have not done this event before. In reviewing both website links, it would appear that all of the classes in the XC race only does 1 lap or 7 miles. Is this correct???

    The beginners do one lap, sports and SS 2, experts 3. And I think that Wes is trying to bring in some more competition to keep me out of the money... its a conspiracy!
    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in his shoes...
    That way, when you criticize him you're a mile away and you have his shoes.

    Two years ago I got lost and ended up on the course in the wrong direction, so don't count on getting your ass kicked too soon.
    And what about the beer? Beer laps and SS racing are a lot like peas and carrots.

    Last year someone set up a tent at the Start/Finish and all s/s riders had to stop between laps for a mandatory beer. You could not proceed until your cup was empty.

    Every race should have one.

    Fontana is a really tough course for a SS, so it will be harder than it sounds. But still, the laps are short...

    Do you say this because SS'ers have a hard time finding course markings?

    That first beer lap musta did it to me. It didn't help that I went into the woods with my MP3 player on. The course marshal was yelling "NO! NO!", but all I heard was "GO! GO!".

    I do remember this one random SSer that was going the wrong way 2 years ago... He made a very freaked out looking face when I yelled at him. And that was before the beer came into it.

    Nope, I got my beer lap in. I got lost where you went into the woods across the road.

    There's a few pics from last year's event at the end of this thread:

    Icycle owns up to the name

    I know Brado has a bunch too. Check his gallery (?)

    Mr. Duck - if I get drafted to be the Beer Wench again - I'll make sure you get TWO per lap. You might want to contact Happy Fun Racing in advance though....

    I will be forever in your debt.

    I will be the guy on the Dean s/s with the rubber duck on the bars and blinding thirst.


    Hope it snows again. That was awesome.

    Hells Yeah, Tomato has the right idea Don't expect me to race the XC race though, they don't have a class for overweight 30+ year old fat @$$es, oh wait we are called the Clydesdales. Never the less, I will stricltly stick to the gravity powered events. We will all consume "adult beverages" together after I lick my wounds from the downhill race, won't be pretty, I assure you of that.

    Regarding the downhill,

    I guess the "hard ass" category doesn't necessarily involve fully rigid huh?

    Do I get an extra beer for running rigid?
