Hell Yeah! Count me in.
Being that is the only race I will need a NORBA lic for this iyear is good news. Sucks there is no pay out though!!!! Now the real question is should I race that class or not?
I wonder if Wisp will be USAC as well?
Yes WISP is USAC. Well the GES dates are I know for sure.
Can you convince them to offer an open class as well? That would be swell.
Can't hurt to suggest it. I will email them.
Err... I just checked there online registration and it says the Open class requires a 1-day USAC license. Whats up with that?
From the other Massanutten thread:
I would say that covers insurance and stuff.
Basically the way I see this open class, is that it lets expert level racers without full NORBA licenses enter the race. Last year all those types entered the sport class and pretty much gave true sport racers no chance.
I was surprised last year that I saw one DH Instructor from Snowshoe enter the race in the sport class. I asked him why he didn't enter expert, and he said this was the only Norba race of the year he was entering and he wasn't paying $60 for a license for one race, so he was sandbagging Sport so he would only have to buy the one day license.
Pretty pathetic if you ask me. Pay how much to race? And how much for the rig? But then to not own up and race your rightful talent level class instead of steal places from deserving riders in a lower class is just being a tight wad. Eat ramen and race the right class....be a man!
Hrm I thought my post on derailed said you had to pay the one-day license. Will recheck the wording.
The open class is really good idea for a race that can attract people in the south. For the North its worth every penny to have an annual license with all the races they have.
Well then I feel good about my second place last year in my first sport race.
eh? wouldn't that mean you should have won if the sandbagger was in your class?
edit: Silly me....I'm assuming an instructor from Snowshoe should win sport class....
Don't make me drop the dumbass bomb on you in 2008. I'll do it! irate2:
The one day fee was always the norm for all classes prior to Norba cracking down two years ago and making it mandatory for experts. In fact, I wanna say the old one day pass was $10. So a $5er is fine by me.
