Too slow here. Just got home and 4/5 is already closed. Gotta love MABRA racing - if you can get in.

Edited.. never mind, just checked the site.

Ok.. last time. These master races, go by racing license age or actual age? I'd like to race the earlier 35+ (I'm 34, turning 35 this year) only because I'm racing the next morning too and the longer recovery time the better, I suppose. Difference in 3 hours.

I'll be there, 4/5 race.

Teammates of mine who where at their computers the exact same time I was (7:59, refreshing like it was my job) didn't even get in.

It's based on your racing age. 35+ field is still open.

Cool, signed up for that Masters 35+ then. God it's great to be "in season" basically. Racing every weekend from now until May!

dude, you should do the 30+/40+, you would probably enjoy it more as it'll be much more aggressive.

I was debating it, but it came down to a two race weekend and figuring I'd just see how it goes. I'm more looking forward to the second day up in Jersey.
