    Is RRoeder racing Super D? Or will he be giving CC a run for his money in the 50+ first timers DH class?

    I hope CC brings a spare lung or mounts an oxygen tank with an EPO drip cause Sol vista is over 9K and is fairly pedally, he does have a DHR tho and E rides it all the time so then again maybe he will be natl champ.

    Doesn't CC need to actually ride and race his bike prior to the natl's to get in tho, that could be a major problem!

    Spectator or Participant?

    Most of us are the former.

    Ha! Old guys rule. Jeebus, remind me to start a charity fund raise so we can get CC a proper foul weather jacket.

    Disqust?, hardly, never said he wouldn't make it, placing 10th in the beg class in MN is obviously fairly easy.

    I just find it comical he has this need to "race the natl's" considering his frequency of actually riding his bike but whatever. And I'm not the only one who finds this comical, believe me, but I guess they are too big of phonies to say it to him.

    Bump. OK, there will be at least 3 Homers posting at Nats. We'll have a small Homer pit at SV, if you are planning on being at SV as rider or poseur, PM me. There will also be some trail riding going on.

    Are there events that one must participate in to qualify for poseur positions?

    Yes, but you get an automatic "in" if you've ever won the TOTM or HOTY awards.

    I believe contributors to Fo's blahg are also automatically qualified, in much the same way as the previous year's national champion in the racing disciplines. In other words, the field is already stacked.

    Sweet offer Moose! If I could make it out to CO for this, I'd happily join in on being a member of the Homer Poseur crew at Sol Vista.

    Hm, I've never won TOTM or HOTY, but I have contributed to Fo's blog [like that's an accomplishment ]. If you ask anyone at Fo's blog whether or not I'm a poseur, I think you'll get a unanomous answer.
    I'm in!

    No requirements. Only rule is no d!ckheads.

    Looks like SV will keep open some non-event trails, and word has it there are some great local unmarked ST trails.

    In addition to riding, some other "event" ideas:

    The RFX will be coming along on the off chane I do get to sample some of the local dirt and I'm looking forward to it. Been awhile since I have had a vacation too. Hope to see some of ya there.

    happy trails...
