Blowing out the cobwebs

The Rampage is coming up.  Last year I was all tied up with the Vision Quest and missed out on this local XC luck this year.  I'll be in town and reasonably healthy so it's time for something I haven't done in 4 years - a XC event.

The last time I held a NORBA license was '05 (semi-pro).  The last XC event was the Crested Butte classic, and I missed the start time by 10 minutes so got to play catch up all day.  That pretty much summed up how I felt about XC racing at the time...the enduro craze had already taken firm hold.

Question for the local crowd:  where do I belong in the local fields?  Age group experts?  SS?  Pro?  I'm inclined towards the pro field mostly because they do 4 laps.  I need the longest race possible!  Anyway, those of you that have ridden with me I figure will have a better idea than I do...

Here's today's ride doing 3 laps of the course.  Fun stuff in the backyard!

  1. I’ve been toying with the idea of a endurace racing bike prep, maintenace, and SNAFU primer. Think it would be well recieved or worth it?

  2. Belated vote for not the 12th for the Paunsaugunt race, I’ve got a foot ultra in Bozeman on the 11th. Any other weekend and I shall be there.
