Good job, Grant. Guess you didn't need the track time, eh?
Let me know when you're going this next week.

Race in Fort Collins isn't MSC, it's just a separate thing. It's on the 7th. more info at www.road34.com, should be a lot of fun. Congrats to all on the finish today. Wish I could have gone. :( Hopefully I can make it to Chalk Creek but I doubt that I can do the DH race at Fort Collins AND that. :(

So - you will start racing 4x this year? I really think you should. It was a total blast.

I did race the new Enduro. I brought up my P.2 instead, but 4x is really about being the first out of the gate and into the first turn and my Enduro is about 4 lbs lighter than the P.2, so I used that one. Oh - and I think the suspension helped a bit on the parts of the course that I still didn't quite get dialled.

This was a 4x race: four racers at once down a track with jumps, gaps, tables, berms, minefields, and midgets. Races are run in heats and the first two finishers in the heat move on.

Next weekend the gravity events start for the MSC at Nathrop in another 4x race to be held on Sunday. The race in Fort Collins is something totally different.

If practice for the MSC 4x is not allowed on Saturday, I will try to make this race, then run out to Nathrop for the 4x race on Sunday.

Grant = Sandbagger
This was my first race on a mountain bike. Sandbagging would have been entering the beginner class.

Josh still sucks.
Agreed.

I know the info is out elsewhere but anybody know off the top of their head how much the Nathrop one costs? And can we register sunday morning?

Not sure if I'll be racing 4X at all this year. I've raced it a couple of times in the past and the part you mentioned above about the race hinging largely on one's exit from the gate, coupled with the significant amount of carnage I've witnessed in all of the classes, have kind of cemented the idea of 4X as a crap shoot in my head. Maybe I should quit my whining and give it another chance though...

I am looking forward to DH and particularly Super D.

Super D is gonna be sweet! Especially since I've got the AC now. :D

Hey Grant how do you like the 36 so far now that it's broken in? I've been thinking of getting one for my AC but since its so much money (even at the cost prices) that I'm gonna have to save for a while. :p

well then

Just checked my schedule and I'm out on Saturday, and the Fort Collins race - work. How long does it take to get to Nathrop. Sounds pretty fun to me. About how much riding do you get in on a race day with 4x. Assume 4 races or so?
