    the course...? five words: fun, fast, flowy and fuming.

    quoting the good man Steve M from Team Downfast, "good times."

    you'll like the course. times will hover around 2 minutes and 15 seconds. well, that's unless you're a pro dude, then you're talking 1:58.04. :thumb:

    the location is in San Diego County. Approx. 15min east of delmar. Approx. 25min from Downtown. Email me for details. Can't post them here. Remember this is an underground event.

    I moved away, remember?

    Ed: Have fun, guys...should be a blast of an event. Hope it doesn't draw too much attention; it'll probably look just like a normal shuttle weekend to outsiders, eh?

    I have only been to 2 races. So this will be my third.

    In an underground race, is there no paper work? Who times it?

    I think lovebunny will be racing the peewee class. It's open to underage riders without grom qualifications. I won't be there.

    SRU is a race. Times will be tallied. No booze unless you have it in your Camel bag.

    We're working on whether to run a combo time, one run or best of two runs.... suggestions?

    There is only one division: Open. Pros and Ams can battle it out against each other on the same course!

    To sign up, send your full legal name, your nickname, age, hometown and what division you usually race to: ffatbiz@aol.com. If you do not have a nickname, we will make one up for you! Make sure you put "SRU RACER" in the subject line of your email. If you don't, it will be deleted and you will not be signed up. We'll try to seperate the speed demons from the Lucy's. Bring your own number plate beatches...

    Well, we did one earlier this year that was a blast... different location of course. Registration was at the bottom. Manditory push to the top. A sprinkle of rain. Individual timed run. Push back to top.... then 25+ riders lined up for a mob start. Those that got stuck mid pack were either cursing, heckling, or laughing. Results from the mob race were announced but not used to determine the winner. Barbeque, beers and bragging ensued... Maybe a Le Mans style start for the second round? Mob start, 50 yard uphill dash to your bike, UFC rules, then a manditory check point at the midway point where you must drink a glass of warm buttermilk before proceeding... By the way, how long is this course anyways?

    Holy crap... buttermilk. Damn, sounds like fun. We might have to incorporate some sort of UFC mob start for a second run. Good ****e! But the buttermilk is killing me. We problaby won't have time to run two runs so we'll make it a one run race then pour the pitchers at a pizza joint near by.

    The course is going to hover around 2minutes.
