GORDON drinks wine.........
hw should be sucking down a COORS and packing a COPE in his lower lip. But my guess is he got snipped and isn't as "manly" as he used to be.

Is this DH race worth going to? How does it compare to the Sea Otter. That kinda sucked, only got 2 practice runs (beginner class) on each of the two days. The shuttles and lines were huge, is the CMC comparable? How would you rate on a "fun" scale 1-10?

Any race where you have to shuttle riders up or even a lift is going to put a crunch on practice runs. If you feel riding/hiking up is faster at any course that you have the option. Or if your that fast & perfect at shuttling volunteer your time. :smallviolin:

Awesome we need to tip a brew :thumbsup:
I think that could be arranged. It looks like it's going to be HOT out there in the open dry fields. Are there any pics of the course out there? I tried a search and didn't really find much.

It depends on how much the race is.

Anyone got the price on CMC? If its more than 60 bucks I'm just going to go to Northstar for the weekend.

According to the website it's $55 to register for DH race unless you're under 16.

Here is a Video from 2005 produced by Mr Rapdude himself, down load is long but worth the wait. :thumbsup:

Great vid! Thanks. Gave me a good idea of what to expect. Reminds me a lot of the CHDH terrain. I'll have to bring the camera gear, an umbrella, and a cooler full of coldies just to survive out there.

You can actually see about 89% of the course from the parking area, the hill side is supper steep that they traverse across. You should be able to hitch a ride to the top with a shuttle truck then hike down. :thumbsup:

<dl class="first"><dt>1. </dt><dd class="last"> The Cougar Mountain DH - July 6-8th @ Infineon

Yo YO!!!! Just want to let you know, the Cougar Mountain Classic at Infineon Raceway will be taking place from July 6th through 8th.

Infineon knows that the race hasn't been the greatest in the past but they are committed to make every improvement and it starts with the course. This year, a group of local riders, rideSFO, and Infineon have teamed up to create a fast, flowy, fun and challenging DH course. We’ve maintained the basic skeleton of the past years course, but it will be well groomed before Thursday’s practice runs. We are going to try our best to make the course as solid as it can be .....

We’ve also made sure to minimize any flatter pedal sections, and increase the flow of the course as much as possible. The course remains technical, but the fun factor has been dialed up considerably.

The course will sport new sculpted berms down steep terrain, techy off-camber sections, and an all new jump line for riders and spectators alike, that snakes from the finish of the original course downhill into the paddock where you’ll demonstrate your air skills and cornering ability for your family and friends just before crossing the finish line. We want you to come off the mountain with a smile on your face.
