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'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.

Nope I'm moving up to Sport and racing on my recently aquired Spec Big Hit(Thanx to Manny! We are trading frames). I got a lot faster while I was down at the race in Ensanada this past weekend!

I shall be there shooting photos! I was going to race but I bought a new lens and want to try to make some more money! I think I might race a race or 2 at the winter series if I like the course!

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.
