    I'll be there, going straight from the Scott Deer Valley enduro, if anyone wants to hook up and try to pre ride what we can hit me up. I'm pumped for this one also after suffering from a flat in stage 3 and a broken wheel in stage 4 at the Glorieta round and not being able to race the last few due to back injury.

    I'll be there! I haven't raced anything in Crested Butte since the days of the Mountain States Cup maybe 10 years ago. I'm really looking forward to getting back down there. Crested Butte is awesome! I'll be racing in the Masters 40+ class.

    I should be there if I can get the logistics all worked out. I will have to try to get up there the weekend before to preride some stuff since I wont be able to get out of work the week of till that thursday. Anyone know what trails will be raced. I rode the park last weekend, it was EH, at best. I also hit up Doctors Park as well but did not know what else was being raced.

    I'll be arriving Wednesday. May check out a trail or two. Really don't want to burn myself. Looks to be a sufferfest - rad!

    My poor buddy that will be joining me from Miami, FL is in for a treat.

    We'll be rolling in the 30-39 Vet class.

    If we shuttle, I think we can hit a fair bit on Tuesday and Wednesday if anyone can make it. I'll be there on Monday looking for some others to join in. My thought was to try and hit the stages they were supposed to have raced last year but didn't due to the tragedy that took place last year.

    Is there a list of those or a map floating around online somewhere?

    My wife and I will be there racing. We did the 5 day Bme in CB in 2014 and it was incredible. And incredibly hard. Looking forward to this one!

    lol, no doubt. I suffered bad in the mud. Pretty much went down at least once on every stage trying too hard and three times on Captain Jacks.
