    12 hours of Tsali

    How many of you guys are going to do this race? I noticed that the Burn 24 is the same weekend and several are doing that.
    My wife and I are going to try this as our first ever race.
    My mother and wife have put together a womens team. I've joined a coed team. I've heard these team races are a blast!

    I'll be there for the first time this year. But other members of my team have done the race in the past and say its a blast.

    If the course is the same as last year then 45 to 70 minutes( According to how fast you pedal) Up the fire road and back on right loop.

    Yep, I believe it is the same route.

    No Mike, I'll be geared for this one. In process of finishing the new SS build.
    Maybe next year .

    I think I'm riding this race with 5 of my fellow employees plus a friend or two from Asheville. Are the trails muddy right now?

    Question...while the race is going on...will Mouse/Thompson be open as usual for bikes?
    Never be afraid to try something new.

    Yes is the answer I got to that same question when I asked the race organizer (gone ridding).

    However, I expect parking will be very tight.

    Yes but I believe it rained all day Saturday. And it hasn't rained since so it should be much drier now. As long as it doesn't rain before the race, conditions should be as good as gets for Tsali in the spring time.

    It actually was raining on Sunday too. Yeah it should be dried out nicely now.

    I'll bet that even with no more rain between now and Saturday...there will still be plenty of mud!
