After this weekend

I don't have any races until September! Da hell? Most of the races I have done this year have been in cold, ****ty conditions... My next race after this weekend? Hill climb in the high mountains in September. Guaranteed snow.


It's not like Montana gets unbearably hot in July or August!

Come down to the midwest for superweek. More racing than you can shake an 8 dick walrus at.

Unfortunately I won't be there, but I'd recommend coming over to Oregon for the Elkhorn Classic, especially since you missed Hood. I've heard nothing but great things about this race.

I'm taking the week of cross roads off from work, and plan to race every day I can. I'd LOVE to do Fitchburg, but have work related crap this year. I'll be there for sure in the 3s next year.

There's only a slightly better than zero chance of snow. And you'll get recursive's autograph. And think of the fun you'll have dishing out heaping portions of the pain in Wisconsin. Come out here and show us Midwesterners what an old-fashioned Montana smackdown tastes like!

Do you know when they'll start putting up more race info, EventServices?

I'm planning on doing most of the first week, maybe 7 of the 9 races, but want to get the necessary details before making further plans.

If strong in the force Yoda is, then proper sentences construct why can't he?

Come down for the Dead Dog Classic - oh wait you might see snow (well at least beside the road and hopefully not falling on you).

Seems odd...I'd think the weather up there would be nice in July and or August. Here, not so much. Mid to upper 90's and hight humidity. Not Hotlanta humidity, still high though.

Exactly. High 80's at the most! Perfect for bike racing.
