    Wild Knobbies Race Series

    What about this for an unofficial and unsanctioned (and obviously uninsured) downhill series:
    Race fee = $10
    Start = Deerpoint
    Route = Ridge Road- Hard Guy- Bobs to the cul-de-sac
    Prices:
    1st: 50% of purse
    2nd: 30%
    3rd: 20%
    Bring your own beer. Bring your own cell phone to call 911 if you hurt yourself. No race numbers. No technical neutral support areas.
    Whenever I haul a$$ I have to take two trips.

    Fun! When is it?

    This sounds a lot like the "SCORBA" downhill race I ran into once while poaching trails on the UCSC campus (everyone was doing it!).

    I'm in. You guys can have my $10, as I'll be 4th at best.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    I'm absolutely down with that, and you guys would be taking my $10 because I can't climb to save my ass...

    We should do it!

    Sounds like a ton of fun. Keep us posted if it comes together.

    May your trails be narrow, crooked, lonesome and dangerous, leading to the most outrageous adventures. Paladin

    If there was mandatory mid-ride chugging of malt liquor, this would be much more interesting. (Funny, but 10 years ago or so we came up with a similar idea - a point to point "race" across the footies with mandatory beer stops through the course. Now that's a race I could get into!!!)
