    Here's the link: ActiveColumbia

    I'll be there racing single speed. Not looking forward to the conditions though (dejavu from the April race there)... I just sold my boat anchor mud tires so it could be 3 laps of slip n slide for me!

    What class are you racing, rocksolid?

    Been biking about 7 years and never raced. How competitive is the beginner class? (40+)

    I've considered it a couple of times but never been a big racer. Could be fun though.

    The beginner course will be about 7-10 miles and they will do it in about 40-50 min. So you need to be able to normally ride about 10-12 mph average
    at harbison to be competitive.

    The beginner course is thirteen miles for this race. but if you know harbison it won't be to bad. The route is two laps of some of the better flowing trail. Although I love what they've been doing with all there trails. Its a good way to meet other riders and test yourself. I had a blast my first race, once you start peddling the butterflies will go away.

    Bump that. I had my mud bath there in April, not looking for a repeat today. I'll reconsider for Race to the River.

    Had a blast!! Didn't do as well as I would have hoped, but for not being on the bike in two weeks not bad. 12th place in 40+ beginner out of 17 I believe. two inch's of rain had them move about 6 miles into gravel grind. Think I would've faired better slipping down single track. Next up southern classic this spring.
