I raced a couple of midwest mud races not long after my early desert days, i.e., a lot younger and still in good shape. I wanted the freaking die. One of them took me 2 and a half hours to go 24 miles.

I don't have an on-going thread, but I have done a write-up for each one. I don't want to hijack your thread here too much, but I'll just post a quick link to them in case you want to kill some time in between your races.

If it's any consolation, the girls have to be at least 12 to ride the big course. So, thats a little better, right?

So I pose a question to the floor: if the loops are only 18 miles in this USDR race and they are supposed to be easier than D.37 - should i sign up for FOUR loops or TWO?

If they are easier, then I think I should try for four laps.... what do you guys think?

I think they will require you to just do the two your first time with them. I read their rules, and unless you hold a license for expert of ammie in another series, they put you in the kids... uh, the beginner/novice race.

oh FINE - here I am trying to mentally push myself and I get knocked back to minor leagues!



what was CLASSIC was when I finished checkers, I swang by the pits to tell all the Coyotes around that I was ok and finished for the day and there was a kid there and I asked him if he was waiting for anyone, and he said something to the effect of "no - well we have some kind of beginner, new guy out there and he hasnt come in yet"

and I laughed and told him that was me and he kinda looked horrified for a second and then said..... "....... oh..... "

The XR hit me in the face today - mid second lap. Dunno what happened... I was in another guys' dust and missed a whoops or a rock and blammo; over the bars.

Pics and helmet cam to come and NO I DIDNT get the crash on video!

oh - I have no idea how I did. When I cashed, 40 guys must have gone by. I was there for 15 or 20 minutes at least.... it might have been longer so I lost TONS of spots and when I got back underway I wasnt going to fast enough to not get passed by everyone. In fact I almost crashed trying to catch a kid of a Kwak.



I finished at least!
