    $35 to $50 just to ride the green/blue loops at FH? Yikes...I'll pass.

    Speaking of FH, I noticed some pretty egregious cheater lines cut on the blue loop while riding the other day. Must have been from the last race this past weekend. Remember kids, if you need to cut cheat lines on beginner loops, you've already lost.

    Had been thinking about doing it but I decided to buy a new bike instead of putting money into fixing my current bike and the new bike wont be here for a few weeks. Maybe next year.

    Thats the main reason why I decided not to do it. Fountainhead is my local trail - I can do as many laps as I want for free. I also spectacted a portion of a race a Shaeffer Farms a short while ago. A rider stalled and fell over on a switchback where there was no room to get by. A surprising number of the riders behind him were total pricks about it; 'Ah come on!' 'Get the f!% off the trail!' I haven't run in a race before, but if thats the general mentality I definitely don't need to be riding with people like that.
    I have a black belt in MS Paint.

    I watched the CX race they had at Lake Fairfax (Capital Cross I think?)...it was pretty interesting. But you are right, if I'm going to ride dirt, I'd rather be on my MTB.

    FWIW, I don't have problem with racing or anything. I'm just cynical about races at FH. After every race that comes through, there are always half a dozen plus new cheat lines that spring up. It just dumbs down that section of trail and becomes a nuisance for everyone that rides there on a regular basis.

    Understood, I'm in moco and have never ridden fountainhead, so it should be interesting.
