I got home by 5:00 pm today, just in time for a short ride. Me and Dumbgirl took Hicks favorite trail up Mineral Fork. Snow is melted enough to make it all the way up. Nice views up there.

Sat am ride

a couple of us are going out for a dirt only suicide trek on Sat AM... We'll try to ride until we faint... small bikes... unsure on the area still... maybe Toolelele to Cherry Creek? Hopefully higher elevation if i can link 200 miles of dirt and still find gas. PM me if you feel like riding like a demon.

Nationals are expensive because of the ama thing but there aren't any other expenses other then regular bike prep. Nothing major just don't waste money and go out with a bike thats going to break down.

Sportsman is usually just shorter or less loops but on the same course and they start last. Novice or sportsman would work. Sportsman will have a lot less people to line up against.

If you in decent shape and don't get too competetive and ride over your head you more then likely won't get hurt. The great part about it is you can just ride and not owrry about your buddies and you also don't have to worry about having a head on with someone going the oppsite direction.
Excellent. The ride Warp9man and I am taking over next weekend calls for 120+ miles days, so I'll see how my hands/wrists hold up to long stretches or riding. If all goes well, maybe I'll try the race. I keep my bike in pretty solid shape, and I'm not out to set any records. I just want to do it to prove to me that I can.
