    Camp Hilbert is a great first race venue. The trails are fairly smooth with some rooty sections, not going to lie about that and only a few uphills. Mostly it is fast and there are a few sections that you roll up and down through a man made ditch which is a lot of fun. It's a good way to start the race season. Make sure you check out the VA Off Road Series at http://www.virginiaoffroadseries.com/ Hope to see you out there!

    good info

    thanks sumluc, that is what i was looking for. i am planning on some of the vaoffroad series, cant do any running. but the bike parts definitely interested.

    went to your blog, nice redline, just bought a copper d440. seems like running it rigid for the first race may not be a bad idea. how about tires? the nanos are good for training and dirt road/road work, but not too good on the trails so far. are knobs a good idea for hillbert, or give these a go?

    will see you at hillbert hopefully.

    The blog needs updating, but thanks. I love that D440, I have been trying to get my friends to get one and at that price it is a steal! I just got some WTB ExiWolfs which is what I've noticed a lot of the single speeders around here are running. But as long as Hilbert stays somewhat dry the Nanos should be good just let a little air out to give them more bite. There is a section that runs by the creek that will sometimes get a little murky and that's about all. I would keep the rigid fork for the Hilbert race, not that many bumps. Get some pics up of the D440, love that copper paint job!
