    Whats the deal with this race? I know there is no chairlift, so is it shuttle serviced, or do we have to..... you know what :dead: .

    Also, is there any practice on Sunday? I was thinking of just going up there Sunday morning with Price, would that be a good idea or should we go saturday as well.

    Last year they had U-Haul trucks shuttling people up, it was awesome. It was the coolest race I've ever been to, definately go.

    Unfortunately I have 4 exams next week including 2 on Monday, so I had to make a tough decision and I'll miss it this year.

    Not happy.

    Cool ,fun race. The ride up the hill in peske trucks is a knar as the ride down. the new jumps are hot!!! the "airlines" will toss you a sphincter puchering 40+ feet if your doing the pro line. the last jump into the park has a hurling distance of over 30 feet with an endless transition. For the "normal " guys there are go arounds in all the hard parts including an 8' high or 3' high alternate line on "airlines" and a small 2 foot off camber jump into the park. there is a ton of give aways as well as some great surprises. don't forget the 140 steps around the pagota, the log garden,bunker jump, oh, and more steps to the finish line.!
