Yep, I'll be there. If the weather is decent, I'll probably go down for all of them.

I'm all over it. Signed up for all 6 cat5 races. This should push me to Cat4 by the last weekend.

Speaking of which - if anyone is going early and wants to carpool, PM me. Maybe we can work something out. I'll be trying to get there early - races start early for me since I'm a weakling. They want us out of the way and all the debris cleared out before the real racing begins.

If I wasn't still nursing my back injury...

I like Greenville when it's 40 and raining...

I'll be there for two full weekends. I'm not sure about this weekend though. I'll be the guy racing cat 5 acting like I'm on the black sheep team. Oh yes..

No, you didn't offend at all. I was just kidding around.

I still think they are trying to figure out how to do the club team... it is still kind of up in the air right now. I do know you can buy the kit for 2008 and sign on at various levels. The application is in the documents section of blacksheepcartel.com

Whelp it looks like the meteorologists crystal ball is predicting chance of rain Saturday morning, clearing warm upper 60's for the afternoon (good for the category races I guess); then rain on Sunday. I won't go to BMW if it is raining... I hate crits in the dry, but in the wet, no thanks!

Mark- I think Jon and I are passing for this weekend since it looks like CH will be clear all weekend. Too far to drive for imperfect weather, even though I'd really like to race the BMW course. Plus, we've raced four weekends straight, so an off weekend to do some longer rides wouldn't be a bad thing.

Have fun on Saturday, and we'll see you next weekend.

yeah looks like I will not be heading up this weekend either. Can not justify the drive up there if it will rain when it is suppose to be sunny and decent here in ATL.

I will actually be in town, but not racing. A shame, because I am in the best shape for a Feb in years. If I get some free time, I may come down to watch some of the Pro/1/2 race in the afternoon. Right now, the weather is supposed to be really nice.

Yeah..Spencer and I were down for the team last year when things where getting started up. I stopped racing mid season because of financial reasons. Spencer trained like a muudda****a and seems to be kicking ass right now. I'm just trying to get back on that level soon.

Good luck this weekend. I'll be out there on Sunday or for the next two weekends.
