    I've been hearing rumors that there is still a TON of snow in AF. And with only 2 weeks to go, anyone know how this will effect the race? No chance for cancellation I hope....

    Mr. Mac, will the Super D have the same emphesis on D ownhill as last years G3 on the Beta course? And will the lift and unused trails be left unrestricted throughout the weekend? Can't wait to ride, F-the drive...

    This race is in New Mexico. The name Chili Challenge refers to chili peppers.

    No, the lift is named Chili Express. Good try.


    I hope to make it. Look for the yellow FJ Cruiser covered in stickers.

    My idea to have the chile eating contest. I said that we'd make Buell defend his title.
    I didn't say I was contesting it. :busted:

    With the way Buell eats chilis on everything this should not be too difficult.

    Nate reports that there's a puddle on the XC course "higher 'n Rosie's belly."

    I told him to leave it there.

    Things are melting fast. Get ready for some blue groove...

    Word is $15/day, same as last year.

    For those who don't know, MSC is using a new registration system this year. All those who are pre-registered have their own line. All forms are filled out for you. Come up, sign your forms, get your plate. Your registered. No more hunting forms just to stand in line and find out you missed one.

    Preregistration is open at SportsBaseOnline until Wednesday, May 21st, midnight eastern (yes, Eastern).

    I believe this is the case for everyone. Pre registered riders the forms are already printed and are ready to go. Riders registering on site have to wait to get there form printed. By the time you would have filled out your address on the first form, all of your filled out forms will be printed awaiting your signatures.

    Marla Streb just confirmed. EC's headed out on Monday for a little Skid-Steer magic on the 4X course. Because we're going to see a ton of national-level and World-Cup level pros here we've decided to have a meet 'n greet pro night. We'll have the XC pros on Saturday and the gravity folks at 7PM on Sunday.

    Hey Mike... if I can talk Darner into it are you gonna let he and I rally up a bluegrass version of the National Anthem before the big 4X event?

    Of course that means I'll have to buy a banjo...
