    OK, so im going to be doing some racing this season coming up, starting with the race in southridge on nov. 20th. Who else was interested in doing this one? I don't know anything about their divisions, but i will be doing the DH racing though. Anyone know what the track is like? Also, if there are other DH races around the SoCal area, please post about them in here, and if you are going or not.

    its pretty straightforward. bring your pedaling legs as the wall is a bitch. the course is different every race. umm. its not long and its loose and offcamber. its got all the regular classes beginner through pro. most of the guys in the socal forum go to it. ill be there for sure. look for the dude in the yellow and red tnt jersey on a white bb7

    Fontana races are a lot of fun, and they have a really good vibe. It's a perfect place to start racing. While a lot of people tend to complain about the courses, I've never seen one that I didn't like. Some of them can be pretty tame, but put some speed on them, and they're fun. I will be there for sure on 11/20...

    I have a couple of pix here ---> http://www.punkduck.com/gallery/album10

    it looks like a ton of fun, great atmosphere, and everyone seems real friendly. Not sure if I'll be there on the 20th, but I am going to run in the winter series. I'll be in the beginner old guy class. :thumb:

    I'll be there on the 20th aswell as all the winter/spring/summer series races. Fontana is pretty fun, and it's not like we have much else in Socal as far as racing is concerned.

    I know it's not SoCal, but is there any racing at Bootleg? 4-5 hour drive isn't that much farther than BB used to be, better trails too!

    I'll be racing and winning at Fontana on the Nov. 20th! Then I'm gonna go down to the Ensanada Dh race on Nov. 27th, and win that one too!

    I did hear a rumor that KHS was going to put on a race series at Bootleg--in November. Not too sure if it is still on, or not.

    Schweet, mang. Movin on up! (to a dee-lux apartment...)

    I've never really raced before aside from local races we used to do waaaay back when. (You know the kind... 5 bucks a head, winner take all... watch out for hikers!) So I am really interisted to try it out. It looks like a ton of fun.

    I'll be there, hacking it up. I'm going down to the Baja 1000 that Thursday and Friday then coming up to the Fontana race. If anyone is interested in going down for that let me know, I got space in ma truck.
