    Howard County Double Cross

    Signed up for both next week. We'll see if my ancient body can handle races back to back.

    Any comments on either course? Flat, hilly, techical?

    Who's going? I'm registered for the Cat 4 for the rest of year.

    I'll be there for both days in the B masters. I can't comment on the courses since this is my 1st year racing cross down here.

    Stick around to watch the B race - Lith is looking fierce.

    I can't believe we only have 4 races left...

    What's the 4th? I have the HoCo dbl and Reston.

    I will stick around for the Master B (we need a term for that - like Dirty Old B's or DOBs). Bringing the wife and kids to watch.

    I'm signed up for both, but seriously considering flipping to Masters B. At any rate, I'll be there both days and will be hanging around after my races, at least to watch the Elite Masters.

    Are the Championships just effectively another race, same folks, etc or are things stepped up a bit?

    I'm okay with being filler, but I feel bad about being an rolling obstacle if folks are actually racing to win something official even if it is just the Cat 4 race.

    the cat4 race isnt a championship event so dont sweat anything. honestly unless you are impeding people in the A race I wouldnt worry about impeding anyone unless you were being a dick on purpose or something.

    This is the first year for Schooley Mill so no feedback on that. I only spectated the 2008 Rockburn cross as I was recovering from a borked collar bone, but took lots of picutres here. The course has changed some from what I've heard, but someone else can probably give you a better idea of its layout and technical sections.

    I hate sand. Sand did me in a couple of weeks ago at Fair Hill. It messes with my head.

    this sand is much shorter and pretty much not worth riding so dont fear it.
