Doesn't seem like many of you on the AZ thread raced in last weekends MBAA series but doesn't it seem like it is taking forever for the results to be posted?

Actually there were quite a few I think. Not sure why the results are taking so long but they have the links working for Estrella which is good enough for me. I stayed a while Saturday to check the results and drink some Mudshark beer.

Yeah, I stuck around and saw the unofficial results posted but I was looking for those that finished around me so that I can "size up" the competition at the next race.

As far as sticking around and drinking the Mudshark brew.......that was all gone in a matter of minutes!!!!! Was it any good?

When I checked the board when the prelims came out I saw I came in at 67 minutes which for me anyway was pretty respectible. That would be for the beginner group. I thought I saw the guy who won my group with a time of 7 minutes and change, I bet that got contested.

Hmmm, you must have raced the sport or expert class Bondo. I had myself about 3 of those half cups of brew. It's the same Mudsharks as the one in Havasu and yes the brews are good especially the Hefe.

Thanks!!! Yea, I raced Sport but have to reconsider if the beer is gone that quickly! Hell, I think I could have done the beginner in at least 50 minutes if I knew the brew would be gone that quickly.

I think the guy with the best time was at 51 minutes maybe? That guy was pretty fast, but I could see how someone could be in pretty good shape and pull off that time. Estrella should be interesting. The tech part of the long loop after the saddle takes a little bit of time. I bet the beginner winner comes in around 55-60 minutes. I am shooting for 65 minutes like McDowell.

If any of you guys pre-ride let me know, especially if you're sport class. I would love to know which lines you guys use in the back.

I will be at estrella this weekend, next weekend, every weekend until the race. Of the 10 mile long loop I know only about 4 miles are techy but those 4 are sandy with loose rocks both conditions I stink at riding. I am hitting it Saturday at 10am and Sunday at 10am maybe later Sunday because my Superbowl party is near there.

I will be out there next weekend, not sure which day yet though. I ride with a friend that's in the expert class, so he helps me alot with picking lines. I just plan to finish, that's my overall goal!
