Silvermine 2008 - Anyone Going??

Ok PCad. You going to be there rocking the TT world? GSteinb? Others? Rumor has it that Killer Penguin May show up, so I was wondering who of the BF community would be there to suffer?

Penguin once again fears the wrath of DrWJ. Let that be a lesson to all comers.

What that lesson is, I don't know, but I hope that you comers will be able to figure it out.

Seriously, mountain biking?

Doc, I assumed you would be a great mountain biker if you have even a modicum of handling skills. The ability to hammer solo for long periods of time seems about perfect.

Now I just need to buy me a bike, and locate some races. Sounds fun! Do I have to train too?

If by training you mean drink tons of beer and ride once this week, I've been dropping the hammer.

They changed the course this year. That blows. I liked the old course. I'm not crazy about Long Meadow Road (new course), I'll have to train over there on the TT bike. I'll probably be there, it's too close to me to pass up.

New course is on a smoother road with fewer cars. What is not to like?! I am not sure if it will be faster due to the rollers.

Fewer cars on Long Meadow Road? That's not the case. But both venues didn't have big car issues. You don't have TRAFFIC CIRCLES on Long Meadow to gum up the works however.
