    Trying to get my schedule for the racing season together. the sooner i get it in front of the missus, the better chance i have of actually getting there. with age comes wisdom :brows:

    so far i'm at:
    massanutten 5/10
    US Open 5/23
    wisp 6/21 or snowshoe 6/28
    maybe East coast Nats 7/12
    snowshoe 7/26
    snowshoe 8/30
    wisp 9/20

    so there's that giant hole in the first 3 weeks of june, that just seems like a waste of prime summer racetime. c'mon promoters... more collaboration would help us all out.

    i'm considering the 6 hour drive up to the east coast nationals at windham. anyone know anything about this yet? will it be worth it? i've never been to a national before and never ridden in that area. would Mt Snow the next weekend be a better choice?

    Save up a few bucks and go to Whistler. A long weekend up there is 10x more fun than any DH race I've done in the last 15 years.
