    Blah blah blah...

    I was hoping to catch you out there. Maybe at the Sea Otter this year?

    byoung, I'm sure I will see you out there.

    Brian? You coming? Anyone else?

    Dude... If I had the cash, and the time off work, I'd be there just for fun.

    We'd make it a light-travel-madness-Sunday-CCCX-DH-Race weekend... haha...

    Haha or even a Saturday depending on which race we can all make it to. Hopefully you can make it out to one or two this season. =]

    Maybe towards the end of the season, but June is going to be taken by wedding stuff, so after we get back from the honeymoon, I plan on being in Downieville or at Northstar every weekend of July. :-)

    I'm so excited. Haha...

    I'm goin, Kelly too. This could be interesting, I got back to the gym the other day and realized how out of shape I was after getting sick. Either way, I can't wait to pedal my butt off this weekend.

    Josh- are you comming down for sat. practice? What class are you racing this time? Sport or expert?

    Yeah, dude. I'm drooling over Northstar already.

    Hopefully it'll open up like the first week of June or something. That'd be awesome. :monkeydance:

    Man, I would love to hit up Northstar as soon as I have a big bike again. Hopefully sometime after the Sea Otter I will have some extra cash to put towards the Primer. I also think we all need to plan a Downieville trip together!

    Brian, I will be there doing sport again. I'm not good enough/ride enough to be at the expert level yet. Well see how this year pans out. I think you are going to be my main competition AGAIN. And once Todd starts, hes going to be right there too haha! Were all too close in da skillz department. lol

    Congrats Byoung! 5th place! And also great work Brian, 3rd beating me by less than a second with both of us crashing. Jerk. =]

    Good work Jamie for 3rd in Expert. Impressive as always.

    Great seeing everyone out there!

    Yep, I ended up with 4th. Pretty happy with a podium for my first race. Pretty excited for the rest of the season.

    The race was a blast even with a few crashes in practice and in my race run. Mike, you missed out. =P :monkeydance:

    You guys like my new avatar? haha

    Nice avy man.

    And yeah, I know. If I could have been there, I'd definitely have brought out my MkIII. The 7point had always been too much bike for that place.

    avatar is good, I dig the guiness.

    More than 6" of travel is a little too much for cccx, the 5 on my cannondale feels just about right.

    Josh! No crashing for us next time, we could be fast if we didn't fall all over ourselves :D
