    Looking forward

    Looking forward to this one. I know there are races earlier in the year but this is one of the most fun and most unpredictable, weather wise. It really kicks off the season for me.

    I bet the chili line will be a tad faster than a custom burrito line of last year, but those burritos were really good.

    See ya there,

    If I recall correctly:

    Beginner: 1 lap
    SS and Sport: 2 Laps
    Expert: 3 Laps

    Now, last year, SS'ers had to drink a beer between each lap, which made me want to SS.

    The night downhill sounds like fun, but the only problem is I don't have a long travel bike. Is the course tough enough to require a long travel bike? Or could it be done on a 4" travel cross country bike?

    No big-hit bike required!

    You don't need a big-hit bike to ride the night downhill. It is very, very fast and has some gnarly switchbacks at the end. You will love it!
