Cam-Rock ride 5/11

Thinking about going up and riding the trails at Cam-Rock tomorrow. Looks to be about 1.5hrs from me. I know most people are busy with races, work, or getting fitted for swimwear but figured I would toss this up anyway to see if there's any interest.

I hear some of the trails are pretty technical and there's no doubt I could improve my skills in this area. Plus there's a WORS race here in June and a 3hr night race in August. With it being so close I'd like to hit both of those.

Trail conditions are optimistic for tomorrow but will have to keep an eye on the weather. http://www.madcitydirt.com/smf_forum...railconditions

Ideally, I'd like to get an early start and hit the trails by 9am at the latest. Need to get back for some things later in the afternoon.

I know! Damn anniversary getting in the way. No time for a ride outside but may have to squeeze in some hard intervals on the trainer before we leave tomorrow morning. At least the weather is the suck, if it was nice I'd feel worse about it

The plan is to hit the road by 7am so I can be back early enough to get some things done in the afternoon. Right now the trail status is still red and hasn't been updated. Haven't checked the weather today so don't know if anymore rain came through up that way either. Going to check again in the morning and make a decision from there.

Ride was a no go. They got more rain last night so trails will remain closed today.
