    I've attended this event many times over the years. I've always had a great time. Sadly, work will keep me away this year. Lots of diverse activities, great rides in the area, cold beer and music at the end of the day. Great folks to hang around with for sure.

    I looked up the website and apparently early registration was until 3/31.
    Can you register as a walk up at the event?

    Walk up at your convenience. The only difference is the early bird discount.

    Would you guys like me to speak? Seriously is this event still on? I've heard that rain and thunderstorms are predicted for the whole weekend. God knows how correct the weather forecasts are but still wanted to be sure. I'll check it out anyways :)
    My GPS says from my home to Mariposa is 1 hr 25 minutes. I think I can make it!

    Who’s got video of the GS Giants course?

    I ran my 310gs in it, and I’m dying to see footage of the log jump that I almost lost it on...my memory fails for that one moment.

    I was bike #2, and I ran w/ one pannier to protect my carbon exhaust.

    Please post if you caught my antics.
