I love riding tough challenging trails, but not at racing speed. I'd like to watch a GNCC race sometime though. Looks like some great action.
I hear you. I won't be doing races that many times a year. Maybe 2 or 3 a year. But it gives me a goal and I rode a lot more offroad the past three months (well really this past month) than I ever would have if I hadn't done the race. The whole point of this was so I learn on something other than my expensive BMW.
