    I'm in, on the 3 person GEEZER team Denkiyama. This will be my
    first time racing there, as I just started mtb racing late last summer.
    The 500 racer mass start should be a hoot!

    Just got signed up last night, best race on the east coast! On a three man team, riding my el mariachi, if I don't pick up a mukluk before then. The start is awesome but don't underestimate your speed and drop to the back like I did last year, it is easier to get passed then pass on this course. Will also be doing snotcycle here at the end of the month. Snotcycle is my training race for bakers. See you all there!
    E.P.

    I'm registered for Snotcycle too! I haven't raced there either, but a buddy of mine
    and I went out there a couple of weekends ago and preroad what we could find.
    Looked pretty fun, even with the snow and ice on parts of the trail from the Christmas
    snow :-)

    Its a pretty big start but nowhere near 500 as about 1/2 of the folks are on teams. Probably 275 actually start the race and it sorts out pretty quickly - within 2 or 3 miles you are settled into your similarly paced place in the field.

    Pray for a really hard freeze at SnotCycle or it will be a disaster out there.

    Yeah, there needs be some good 20 deg days leading up to snotscycle or else the trail will be done after the first lap. was out there 2 weeks ago when there was still snow on the trail and it was bad then. Bakers will run the trail in reverse of last year so no pine barons in the first mile which i think will help thin things out quicker. I was difficult to pass at the start last year once you were in the pines because it is such a fast section yet sill pretty narrow. Looking forward to the pre rides!

    Have not found any yet, one video from this year of the first lap. They just posted tentative results, our team was not last!!! I checked the photo blogs that have been there in years past (too fat to race and a.e. landes) but did not find anything yet. Another awesome weekend to race, perfect weather, perfect trail, and a bunch of awesome riders. mmcclusk where did you pit? were you on a team or ridin psycho i mean solo?

    We pitted in an RV near-ish the Pines Entrance/Exit.

    Raced 2-Man Geezer. Got 4th. I was the one on the course riding with the prosthetic leg.

    A few photos can be found here: one leg matt

    I have some video coming soon of the start, probably by the end of the week. I'll post link here.

    Nice finish, we were a three man team, just happy not to be last! Saw your guys set up at least 6 times, I was riding by on the orange fat bike, a salsa Mukluk. Great pics! Hopefully the photographer at the drop off in the pines got a good one of me hucking off the ledge!!! We were pitted directly opposite of you against the fence next to the "big tree". I will keep looking for photos.
