Hey boys and girls,

You could give no better gift to your biking buddies than to bring them to Lake Sonoma on Saturday for what promises to be a savory marriage of mud, sweat and beers. For anyone who hasn't tried the Lake Sonoma races yet, the vibe is friendly and low-key, the course is a cornucopia of technical challenges, and the fee is reasonable and includes lunch and beer!

Calling all masters! My personal motivation for pushing the race is to hopefully get a few more old guys to compete with. I've been slacking off the training, and I need someone to serve me a healthy portion of humble-mud pie to get me going again.

I think you may be setting us up for some sandbaggin! :rolleyes: Not sure my schedule will allow but it has been awhile since I've raced up there. Haven't been on the bike since Turkay Day, and I may hold out 'til I see how the weather is by end of the week before I commit. Fairweather rider of late I admit. :eek:

Epilogue: Big turnout, great day!

Wow, I was surprised to see so many people show up for today's race. Carlos had never-been-there-before riders raise their hands, and it was a big group, I dunno, maybe 30-40 new people. I also dunno the total ridership but it was way more than the September race. There were even 6 guys in the Master's div- yay!

The course was slow and the mud was sticky. My lap times, usually in the low 30's, were closer to the mid 40's. You had to go real slow downhill, and the heavy mud made climbing even slower than usual. Many riders I talked to had chain suck issues. Still, the course was rideable, it was just different, and harder, if you can imagine that!

Looking forward to the 2010 LSS already...
