If you've ever thought of going…..go
Cost of the race excluding travel,food and hotels(this could be costs at any race) is $65 if you ride on the friday and $55 if you just show up for Sat and Sun.
I showed up almost 2 hours late to practice on Friday and easily banged in 10 laps.
Sat i showed up late again and racked up 8 runs by the end of practice which ended at 1:00. They fed all the racers at the end of the day with a Pasta and Salad dinner for a bonus. Racing I only got in 1 practice run so it was 2 runs for the day but if you're a Pro you get 2 timed runs for your money. One qualifier and one race run.
The courses are awesome and change at every race. So far the 2 course they've had this year have been awesome
As an added bonus they were giving out 3 free videos(can't recall the titles at the moment) to anyone who wanted them.
Time keeping is top notch and hotseat racing is in full effect.
Due to Cats running different courses, full uninterupted runs happen almost every run.
Cat 1s and Pros run one course and Cat 2 and 3 run another course. With this set up, Cat 1 and Cat 3 practice at the same time and then Pro's and Cat 2 practice. This allows for riders of similiar skill to be on the course at the same time, so catching people rarely happens and "snaking" of one's run is a non-issue if you can wait 30 seconds.
Mad props to all the people who are involved in that series.
A special shout out goes to Greg and Denise who seem to time and time(no pun intended) help me out.
Oh ya Strobel won with Andrew Mitchell and Dean Tennant coming in second and third….ya Canada.
