    US Gravity nationals will be at Beech sometime in September. The usac races may also be held again but no official word has been releases on dates yet. I am sure Talia will come out with a schedule soon.

    My first thought: These races are not for lycra wearing posers who want a special category created so they can place.This is just my E-thug/hater behind a keyboard first thought and as a side note > I have never done any of theses races
    I honestly don't know, what I do know is some of these guys are Really fast( I am not). There was 15+ guys shuttling Windrock yesterday and just when you think you have ridden a trail a few times and your getting faster-some guy just warps into another dimension right in front of you!

    Is that a serious question? (not asking in a bad way or with an attitude).

    Yep, serious question.. I thought I had seen a HT only category advertised last year, but I might be wrong. Just looking for the next challenge.

    I ride an On One Summer Season steel hardtail, so more suited to AM/Super D/DH terrain than most people's concept of a hardtail.

    To paraphrase another comment... ain't nothing posing going on here. I am slow and know it, will get passed by you big boys on a regular basis, I just like the idea of competing in something because it gives me a reason to get my fat ass off the couch and training. I can see why with my question you might think it was about placing, becasue I could just sign up for the DH race on a hardtail in the appropriate age/experience category, but that was not my intent. With all those downhill races listed in this thread and some fuzzy memory of seeing a HT category at some point in a DH race info sheet, thought I would ask.
