You know, I've never raced before (and this is my first season on a bike). I have about 45 rides under my belt and I think I'm ready to try a beginner class race. I did the Sea Otter fun ride and that gave me a bit of a hint of what a XC race might be like. I might just make the trip up to try this one out... I'll try not to feel so bad if I come in last.

I'm thinkin' about it. Not sure if I wanna cough up $40 though (gotta buy that damn one-day license). What class are you racing in?
Actually up until Aug 7th, it's $30 + $5 for the one day license.

I'm racing beg-Mens for what ever age range covers me at 36.
I'm doing it for the fun of it.

I might be up to it , is their any sand at this one like Sea Otter
Not that I remember. I grew up in Napa and worked for a summer up in that area for a vineyard. It's all soil and trees. As to whether or not it's loose or what I couldn't tell you.
Nice to hear from you again Bob!

So I rode it Saturday morning, and the place is pretty sweet. Tons of single and double track, with some technical sections (short but steep rocky and rutty downhill, that I walked). The place does not seem very big, but it was quite fun. I also noticed the altitude (1800').

Coolest feature is that most of the trails are shaded by trees, so it does not get as warm (it was 104 outside in St Helena in the sun Saturday afternoon).

Is the section you walked followed by an immediate uphill that is also rocky?

Who besides me is doing it?
(Apparently I am sick because I am paying to punish myself! :p)
I will be easy to find. I just got my mtbr jersey and shorts so, I'll be wearing those and riding a blue/silver Fisher Sugar3, grey helmet.

Hey Merlin! How did you do? I believe that it was you that commented on my choice of jersey (mtbr)?
