    They have great lodging right at the resort. Call massanutten and tell them you are coming down for the race to get the usual discount

    behind you with a snap pop

    Ha, I would have bet money on that.
    My wife is due on July 25.
    Well, our baby is due July 25.
    That sounded like my wife was arriving in a mail order box from Russia.
    But that is besides the point,
    That is awesome that Snowshoe is listing their dates now!

    Too bad Massanutten is on Mother's Day weekend - I got away with racing on it last year at Platty, but my wife/new mom prolly won't be into this one! (unless, I guarantee that she can ride/race too that weekend)...hmmm.

    Plenty of room for the gals. Theres also a hard tail class that is open. Best of all, The Western side of Mass. has trails that blow the coarse away. Easy to get to, fun for all levels. Contact Shenandoah Bike Company or shenandoahmountainbikeclub.com

    Thanks again for the info everyone. Looks like we're headed down, baby, wife (plus her DH bike) & all!

    Thus far, the majority of our team (Elevate Cycles) will be headed down to Massanutten, and we're also "chaperoning" Geoff Ulmer for the trip - Jr.X's, look out!!!
