Partner for female duo?

Ok, I freed up that weekend and would like to get a partner for the female duo category. I am guessing I can do at least 1:30 laps. Any gals wanna sign up tonight to save a bit of dough and try to grab one of those likely podium spots? Send a PM by 11 tonight.

SS Gearing Recommendations?

Hey there...my girlfriend and I are heading over from the Phoenix area for this...both doing solo SS. Interested in SS gearing rec's for the race...we both have 29'ers, and I run 32x17/18 and Deanna runs 32x19/20, typically. How does this track compare to the Old Pueblo course? I ran an 18 there, and Deanna ran a 19.

Thanks for the beta, and see you all soon!

Few odds and ends

Sage_Cat, and others, if you have not found a riding partner yet, you might want to post a request on the race's FaceBook page. Several folks have gotten hooked up with team members that way.

Note, stage 2 fire restrictions start Monday at the race venue so no chainsaws, explosives, welding and stay the Forest Service roads.

Smoke from Wallow fire is intermittent at the venue. See race website for details: www.24hitef.com.

We have LIVE music for Saturday night!

AND last and most importantly--REGISTRATION ENDS TUESDAY JUNE 14.

Last Chance

Okey doke Tred Shredders, this is it!
1. Registration ENDS on Tuesday June 14 at midnight. Tuesday is the LAST chance to register for the longest Mountain Bike party in New Mexico!

2. Want a podium spot? Then check out these categories: Duo Female, Duo Single Speed, Enchanted Land, and Four Person Co-Ed.

3. Remember Junior Riders are half price.

4. Did we mention there will be live music Saturday from 6-10. None other than: James Mecale (check him out at: http://www.reverbnation.com/jamesmecale ).

5. Santa Fe Brewing will be providing the suds. And for the more refined (or the closet roadie in you!) there will be wine tasting provided by St. Clair Winery.

6. Plan to bring La whole Familia as there will be tons of activities for the little snot slingers--kids race (it was epic last year!), arts and crafts, pinatas, and their own whole little area of enjoyment and distraction.

7. Get on over to http://www.24hitef.com/, check out the latest news, then hit that Registration option and get yourself registered.

This is it folks... don't let this be the "Dang, I'd wished I'd raced it" race of 2011. Come see it for yourself... it really is THAT good.

Pedal, pedal..

Also NOTE: GENERATORS are also prohibited under Stage 2 restrictions. ...
Thanks for that insight. I'd heard that was the case. Not a problem for me, but I know some people with rv's that are going to be surprised to hear it.

I've read that a gas device with an on/off switch is allowed. e.g. a propane stove. Can you confirm one way or the other?

This is from the FS website:
Stage II Fire Restrictions include:
Building, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire, charcoal, coal, wood or stove fire

Regarding the word "stove" above, are we allowed to have propane camp stoves?

Propane and pressurized gas (ie Coleman fuel) appliances (stoves, lanterns, grills, etc.) ARE PERMITTED under Stage 2 restrictions. :thumbsup: The FS wording is a bit obtuse.
