    If that youtube clip was the highlight reel, I can't wait to see the bloopers! :lol3


    In all seriousness, Good On'ya for even finishing. I was wore out spectating last year. That course definitely puts a beating most riders. :freaky

    Aaron and I are doing the NETRA enduro on 5/20 if you want to sign up with us your welcome to. It's like the winter one you did. No time keeping necessary.

    I feel so popular:rayof


    I'm supposed to do something on the 20th but I'm trying to see if I can move it around. Besisdes the harescramble / enduro aspect whats the diffrence between the 2? They are both about 150 miles from me.

    No idea I haven't ridden them. I like the idea of 5 or 6 sprints mixed in over 70 miles of riding, so I'm going with the enduro.

    Yeah from your point of view it sounds pretty good. I'm so fucking slow its a non stop 70 mile grind for me:cry. reading about the CATRA they are talking about easy they made the trails this year. I need to get in shape and push myself so Rhode Island here I come:freaky

    I didn't realize the HS was CATRA. Normally CATRA is rough enough that Tuxedo Ridge would seem paved by comparison. I'm not sure what the "easy " layout this year really means. Every NETRA race seems to get promoted as fast and fun.

    Tough call. I'd rather do the enduro, but CATRA is 30 minutes from my house and actually sounds like fun this year.

    There is a new trailboss for the CATRA race this year. I haven't been up to the land to check out how the course is set up, but I'll probably do that on Sunday. Weather plays a big factor too. Stuff that's okay in the dry up there is like riding on ice when the rocks get wet and muddy.

    I'll be volunteering all day Sunday to help out with the race. Probably registration/sound check in the morning, and whatever needs to get done after that.

    Haven't heard for sure, but I think tonymorr and SideCarJim are manning the concession stand again this year. :freaky
