that's a shame. altoona is a great event that when I've done it always thought it cool that the community really supported it. it had to be the biggest influx of annual revenue in altoona, which is otherwise another forgotten pa rustbelt town.

Wow, I was going to go down and watch a friend in the Cat 1/2/3 races and do the Cat 5 races myself. I go to school at PSU Altoona.

I can agree 100% with this quote. Really is a forgotten town.

In June we go to Housatonic Hills; in July we go to Naugatuck; and in August we go to Tokeneke...with a stop at Pepe's pizza -- not Sally's -- after the first two races ;-)
