    hey guys a few things about the race


    -Please be courteous to freeriders on the trail that you use and yield to slower riders in front of you. We cannot close any trails and we don't wan't any riders to feel that they are in the way, this is pretty much the reason that it is a jam! you can take as many re runs as you want! dont forget!

    also remember this jam is in NOWAY related to diablo! we are just using the mountain to have some freelap fun!

    so basically you and joey or whoever want this freelap gear...and inorder to pay off the difference of it being soo much money you are going to make races so that basically ever one can give you money to pay it off? that is so pointless to the "racers". oh heres 8$ since you bought the freelap i feel bad for you..oh hopefully i win too ..NOT..it doesnt quite work like that kid!

    actuly big guy, joey is buying a freelap transmitter, and he is making fun races. You dont want to race? then dont. i dont think it is any of your business were any of the money is going for that matter. maybe if you race pro you will make money? but the chances of you winning are slim!

    Props to Travis and Joey for trying to instill a little fun into a sport where a large portion of those involved are sadly starting to take themselves way too seriously.

    Sign me up, I'll gladly pay $5 to use YOUR equipment that YOU are setting up so that I can receive a time for MY run.

    It is a neat idea but for the non season pass holder the cost is still high:

    one day Lift ticket $36.00, Watch rental 20.00, race fee 5.00, total cost for one day 61.00.

    a better alternative:
    Race the dominion series this weekend, its only $70.00 for two days of riding plus two timed runs.

    I cleaned up some of the stupid.

    Nice idea, always good to see people taking some initiative to do something fun. :thumb:

    Anyone who doesn't like it: fine, don't race, and stay the hell out of the thread. Be polite and courteous or don't post at all. Are you mentally handicapped? Do you really not see that it costs money to buy equipment and time to organize an event? If you don't like where the money is going, then just don't race.

    Absolutely. We support this. Its just a few kids with a cool idea trying to have some fun. In fact, we also donated some swag for prizes to help the cause.

    Not sure if these mini-races will happen or not, but as long as everyone is cool about it, sounds like a fun time.

    That's cool you guys are setting this up, get all the kids who hang out at the base all day motivated to ride some trails. Good luck with your "jam", i'll make sure to stay off those trails so I don't mess up anyones pinned runs. :cheers:
