    Check out the course map and registration at the race website:

    Yeah, it's strange. But oh well.

    Sorry Broussard, DG, Holmes, there's enough H8 to go around but the original H8ER is my hometown's brutal early spring Madison-Basco-Madison gravel race, which has been going for like a hundred years. Or at least three?

    No one does H8 like a bunch of half drunk Wiscos who've been shoveling snow and riding basement trainers all winter. Midwest.

    ps: your H8R looks like more fun and less suffering than the Madison one. Hmmm...

    Hehe, I can't claim the "Hater" theme as my own, but it just worked out so well I couldn't pass it by... I mean, Haw Ridge, and 8 HR, it just fit together too well to not be the H8R...

    And I just had to do pink as well... i figured if people don't like it, I can at least tell them not to be a H8R...

    But seriously, it's gonna be a rockin good time, if you know anybody who has done the DiscBurner or Ocho, they'll tell you that you won't find a race that gives you more for the money and delivers awesome trails and a rockin good time...

    Far from the typical race where you're lucky to get a crappy t-shirt and "amazing swag" of a gel, you'll get a pint glass, shirt, infinit nutrition, beer, and dinner after the race, for less money than any other race in the southeast... Not to mention free camping, no licenses required, and no garbage "parking" and other lame fees...

    Check it out or ask people who have done one, you won't be disappointed for sure...

    That's right! I'll be there. Haw Ridge is awesome. I'd say that trail system is the offspring of DuPont and Tsali, for anyone that has never ridden there and wants to know what it's like. There is the H8R this Saturday and in October they have the 12 Hours of the Hill of Truth, which falls the weekend of Halloween...riders can ever do laps in costume. It's great!
