    Mailed my entry last year on the 3rd. From Oakland. Didn't get in.

    This year the entry got hand delivered to OMC HQ on day one. Not taking any chances.

    :cry We sold out Tuesday afternoon. Reached our permit limit. There is a wait list for some of the entries. Will be returning some entries that we received after that. Letters for those that are in will be mailed Monday, April 8.
    The course is similar to past years but some of the hard/easy splits are different. The course may change do to weather (snow???).

    Thanks for the overwhelming support for the event. See you there.

    I had amazing time last year riding the event together with "Topper" and his crew from Hollister. But this year I'm definitely out with a broken leg :cry
    No dirt riding for me in many more months...

    Quick Question!

    There was a spot on Day 2 I believe that included a "land slide". We were able to get through it in 2011 with "an old buck knife and a dead blow hammer" to clear the debris.

    I rode but DNF Day 2 in 2012 (blown drive shaft) but herd that the route still included this land slide area and it was "single trac at best" through this area.

    Does this ring and bell and if so, is this still part of the course?
