Who's in for this? Anybody have a hotel for Friday night? With extra room. Who wants to drive? With me in the car.

Seriously, a new thread? You know I'm the only other jackass doing this thing

I'm waitlisted for a hotel in town, if I don't get in I'm planning on sleeping in the back of my car (max occupancy = 1). If you find us a room to split then you can ride up with me, leaving friday noonish.

Gotcha. I didn't know if anybody else was in or not. I'll check around. I might get one an hour or two outside the zone though. At least it's not a 7 hour drive from there. If I find one I'll call you. THREAD DIE NOW

THREAD ALIVE. Booked a dope honeymoon suite in Ladysmith, 'bout an hour south from the race start. If the hotel in Hayward calls me up I can cancel that shit.

Saw some video from the race in 2011 last night. I have a hard time believing you can't do this entire race on a CX bike. Everybody was on MTB bikes though, so no idea why unless they just want to be on fat bikes to play along. I'm riding my MTB for the training anyways, but I'm curious why no CX bikes.

More Cowbell

I'm concerned as to why this has become such a quandry. Just go with it man, we'll find out soon enough whats the hot setup. There's a whole season of cowbells just around the corner to get your CX fix

Nice. I'm running the MTB for sure, but now I'm worried about gearing and revving out. I noticed from last year's results the average speed for the elite/pro was 20 give or take, and the fools I usually race WORS with are around 17-18. I'm worried I don't have enough top end to keep up and draft. If I have a 36 tooth or even 38 tooth front sprocket I'm gonna throw that on. I don't think I do though.

I'll finish. I'm gonna inflate tires to 80 psi and I'm using my powertap wheel to see what power I make the whole race.

That would be quite a downgrade from my current salary of 75 million dollars.

Given any thought to the fact that this is a point to point race and we have no idea how to get back to the car? Do they have a shuttle or some shit, or are we going to have to turn around and ride back 40 miles again?
