So who out there is riding the 24 Hrs in the Old Pueblo this year? If you're in, sound off. Also post up any plans on when you will be arriving to camp, etc.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My team is The Fockers. We are a 5-person co-ed team in the 150-199 age bracket. This is the first time that I have been in a co-ed team -- every other 24-hr race was a 4 or 5 man men's team. This should be interesting.

The 2 ladies on my team are Lori and Jamie. Lori is a racer from Missouri who is staying with me while she completes her internship in physical therapy. Jamie is from Albuquerque. Both should be strong riders. And they are young: 23 and 22 respectively.

The men include me and 2 of my friends: Eric and Rob. We are all mid-30's old farts. We are all pretty capable riders.

So yea it sounds a bit perverted...3 middle-aged guys with 2 just-out-of-college cute girls. But what the hell...that's just how it worked out.

I am the only seasoned 24-hr racer in the group. This will be everybody else's first 24-hr event...and as a result...we aren't riding this to "win"...just riding this to have some fun.

We plan on arriving on Thursday night with a big honkin' 5th wheel. So we'll have a banner on the trailer with our name on it. Watch for the Fockers and say HI.

Thx...Doug

5 person team, Santan Racing, in the coed category 150-199. Hopefully barring unforeseen problems we should be contending for the top spots overall. 4 good expert level men and 1 strong cat 2 woman rider who is having her first season mountain bike racing. Three of us have some 24 hour experience, one has never ridden at night, but given he spanked the expert men's 19-39 field at McDowell I think he should be good to go after a couple of night rides.
Racing ages from 20's, 30's and one 40 year old fart (me!)

Team Dodipus checking in

I'm on a 4 man team, Dodipus... This will be our 4th 24ITOP under various names. We are riding with one 24hr newbie who I dont think really understands what he's gotten himself in to. We are not gonna win the event by any stretch of the imagination, just out to do better than b-4 and have a great time with the boyz.I'll be the guy riding on platforms. Probably will pull in Wed. night and try to get a decent spot. We'll be using the generator so we want to be somewhere where it wont be too obnoxious(sound/smell). Its gonna be a blast and I cant wait!

Yup, a four man team for 24 HITOP.

Two Phoenix metro cops, me - retired old copper, and a U.S. Airways jet driver.

I will arrive Thursday morning and set up camp in my trailer. No banner yet, that I know of.

Lots of THANKS to those of you who are providing support for us!

I've coordinated 2 teams this year of Tucson Tri Girls. We figure if our bikes break we can run, and if it rains we can swim. ;)

Team Tucson Tri Girls: 4-person female team with 1 racer that has done 24HOP before. One other one has done a few Xterras, including the nationals at Tahoe. The other 2 are new mountain bikers, but very good athletes.

Team Tucson Tri Girls and Their Boys: 5-person co-ed 100-149. This team is myself and another Tri Girl, and the husbands of team members. My husband is on the team, and he'll be riding his FR hardtail, since that's his "light" bike. Another guy is a national trials rider that qualified for the world championships. The third guy is a good rider, and did an Xterra on a beach cruiser (long story).

Both teams are just doing it for fun, since only 3 of us have done a 24 hour race before.

Question

My parents are coming from out of town to be my support during the race. We should be getting there Thursday afternoon. Will they be able to ride the course on Thursday/Friday or is the course open only to racers on those days? I know they would really like to bring their bikes. :thumbsup:

Team 'One Win Wonders' will be there making sure that the fast Duo Teams have to keep going all night to beat us... which they will do for sure unless of course it rains all night:D . It's our 4th trip as a Duo, My 6th 24OP all together. I'm on the Fetish Cycles Racing team so we will be camped with them along with our support crew.


Remember to "start off slow then taper off":thumbsup:
