    Race in Patapsco 3/28/09 - AFC Sugar Hill XC

    I came across this last night. No course details yet on bikereg but here is the link. I have an idea of the course because I rode the proposed course with the organizers. Anyone know what the final route will be? Def have to do this one! Limited to 100 people so sign up early. Who is in?

    It's on the 28th, not the 8th.

    I'm very likely to be in on this.

    This is going to be a great race and it goes towards a great cause! It's a shame Patapsco only allows 100 people max to race because it sure is a nice venue. The Adventures for the Cure guys are super cool, make sure to check out their website. www.adventuresforthecure.com and check out their video.

    The course is a little different.....but it's basically the route we did on the "Organized" ride. The last part/s of the loop are what might change from our ride that day. Adam and Blair (the Cure guys) are very good people with a great reason to have a race. Please come out and do their race....it's one of the few chances you have to race at Patapsco and it's for a great cause. It is part of the M.A.S.S. race series, but with the limitations on the racers it will not be scored for the overall points chase in that series. Not sure why the "Park" held the entries to such a small number, they used to have races there all the time in the late nineties. Hopefully this race will change their minds and bring racing back to Patapsco

    I assume I should enter the beginner category, considering it will be my first MTB race?

    I wanted to. Thinking I should race the SS category?

    I can't help but feel pretty intimidated considering what I'll likely be up against.

    Yeah if you've never raced SS class, it is extremely competitive...most of the time the "top" times for a race come out of the SS class...you'd be fine riding your SS in the Beg. group (actually have a little advantage) SS does really well in racing...then after a few under your belt jump on up with the "gang"..your pretty strong with it considering thats pretty much all you ride (even your Cannondale)...
    My first Sport race was with my SS last year in the "Sport SS" class...OMG...when the horn went off I think I was the only guy at the line....all the other SSer's were 100' feet away sprinting...came in next to last that day out of 20+ in the group...It was a very humbling 3-4 months of racing...but I did get pretty strong...by the end of their season (left CA with still 4 races left) I finished up 6th overall out of 20+...
    Your call...keep in mind though "DO IT FOR THE FUN" then it'll all be okay anyway you do it...

    yeah, thats the attitude i took with cross and the real fun was improving my finishes. considering it was my first season it was fun to see myself pass people whose wheel i was glued to a month earlier.

    besides, cross is full of sandbaggers anyway

    I'll give the SS category a go after a few under my belt. beginner will be fun and, my first race, I'll really just be racing myself out there.

    MisterC...Jeremy Bishop (pro for Trek/VW) told me that within the first 5 that get off the start one in that group of 5 is always the winner...out of all the races last year I was in he was right, I mentioned that to you guys right before your start and look what happened. ..

    Yeah, I couldn't take it watching all you guys sign-up...but come on guys..."Beginner"...come on your all faster/better than that...ya got skill, ya ride Patapsco ALL the time, and your all certainly young enough and healthy enough...give yourself not only a challenge BUT much more bang for your $30 bucks...
    Besides, don't let all those strangers spank my ass, I'd much rather get beat by someone I know...

    Ed - I will jump up to sport with you. Let me send a note to Patrick.

    Wood - let us know when you want to come down and ride Patapsco before the race, we will show you around.

    Smitty - why don't i see you signed up? Are you under an Alias?
