This is put on by my club. You could go and help work a check and maybe do some spectating too. Good reason to get out in the woods. Gotta be there by 8 if you want to sign on a check. Training will be provided if you never worked one.

I'm not too bad, thankfully. A little fever.

If you want to go check out the scene, doing a checkpoint would be a great way to do it. You yould have a lot of fun.

Looks like another no-Snow Run enduro. Going to be cold in the morning. I'll be working the parking lot whatever else they can find for me to do.

Morning race: C 250 rider...

Actually there is enough snow to run rally studs. I ran car studs today for mileaging but some wished they had run their rally studs. Either will be tortured to some degree. There are some long ice flows that the car studs where ok on, but with the rally's I would have honked a bit more on...

How does everyone get out to the check points in the woods? Walk? I don't see any bikes by them in the videos

So, no lake ice riding for you this weekend then?

I just got over a sore throat and chest cold for the last two weeks, the majority of my workday is spent outside.

I'm starting to feel a little better today but its KILLING me to be on the couch instead of outside on the beautiful winter day. Everyone at the Snow Run is in for a great time. I hope you guys tell me precisely how much I really missed it and post some pictures.

Wow all three riders kicking ass. Track went to hell in the afternoon. Made me tired just watching him pulling the bike out of the ruts in the afternoon race.
