    Let's start a thread for the next Fluidride Cup.

    First thing I want to find out is, will we be racing the top section, does anyone know? Will there be too much snow?

    Is there a possibility they'll move it to PA? I would really like that, since I had to miss #2.

    chances are the snow will melt enough by the second week in july. but according to skibowl they're shooting for a june 19th open, that's a day earlier than the last time i checked. false hope?

    Just received the Confirmation call from the Horse's mouth today.
    He wanted me to come on here and tell ya'll to pipe it. Ya don't gotta be so negative all the time.

    Fluidride Cup #3 will be starting from the upper chair. We will be racing down Cannonball and the upper trail. If your lucky there might even be some extra tasty little goodies on trail.

    We will also have access to the Multorpor chair a few min ride from the alpine slide chair, which means we won't have to wait for the Alpine Slide cronies on the reg chair.

    So don't sweat it, full course this year, and don't let anybody tell you any different.

    Tell everybody you know it's going to be a KILLER event. let's try and break PA's record!

    so they're finally bringing out the blow torches and shovels :clapping:

    as for multipor, does that mean we park in the other parking lot?

    Awesome news, thanks for the update Lars!

    I didn't interpret the previous posts as negative, just concerned. Glad to hear those concerns have been answered. We'll start spreading the word that it's a full course with some goodies in store too!

    Cheers,

    Is there going to be a new dual track with real berms and jumps or will it be the same as last year?

    I checked it out a while ago to see if it was up.
    You have to go to it via the Racing > schedule tab. Then on the schedule, click on the appropriate registration link.

    Which tires for Hood? Excavators or Nevegals?

    [Don't say Minion DHFs; you'll only make me cry; no Maxxis this year]

    What you said not not say.:huh:

    I raced on Nevegals there and they worked fine. It was pretty dry, so not sure how they'd fare in the wet.

    Hey me and a buddy are thinking about racing (neither of us have raced before). What all do we need to do to be able to race? Thanks!

    Really all you need to race is a full face helmet. You'll need a USAC day license too, but you can get that there for something like $5. You should come up for sure, lets see if we can't Cat II up over 50 riders again :cheers:
