    I'm racing Superior, then working on Sunday.

    Its closer and we have company this weekend, so Granogue is out.

    Have fun at Wiss though.

    I'll be there. Looking to show up around 7 -7:30 to pre-ride. I am staying up there the night before...

    Not racing Granogue but hope to get there by 2:30 to see the Men's Elite race on Saturday.

    my race was some what of a disaster. i totally farked up my start (I was in the front) and never recovered. I made some poor decisions shortly after start that didnt help either.

    I finished 27th out of 61. After my last few races I was really aiming for a top 10 today.

    pretty standard course i guess. mainly grass with lots of off camber turns, a big rideable sand pit with two turns in it, a spiral of doom, barrier run up, and a weird sharp turn on a downhill that most people had to run down and then back up.

    if you search youtube for wissahickon there is a video of last years race
